Mounting bookshelfs flush with ceiling - can you?

Townshend Maximum Supertweeters
I would like to understand more why they shouldn't be placed on the top of the speaker, or what the tradeoffs are by doing so? Townshend's video shows them placed on top and doesn't mention doing otherwise.Thanks For the exact same reasons iso... 
Excellent Speakers for Classical Music - $2,000 USD Budget
I tend to agree, the best value you’re likely to find will be a pre-loved quality pair of speakers. You’ll get rungs up the ladder from new, and when you do have more budget, they will depreciate considerably less if you take good care of somethin... 
PS auido Direct stream Dac
@rhg3 - I have a friend who loves his music, and after a little digging around when he told me he wanted a streamer (DAC built in). Azure 851N is what he bought after my recommendation from reviews.I've heard it, it's quite good, for the money it'...

Caveat: not interested in the SWARM method or multiple subs at the moment, strictly comparing single to dual subs- divertitiSecond who said the first sub can’t have 6 active drivers and 12 passive radiators, BUT all in the same SINGLE 50 cubic foo... 
What Are Your Reference Discs? or Specific Reference Tracks
You are able to evaluate using only certain tracks? Fascinating! - millercarbon Rather than list tracks, I'd refer you to this video and comment: "If you want to learn to evaluate sound equipment, the most important factor to start with is bei... 
What Are Your Reference Discs? or Specific Reference Tracks
I tend to listen to something that I know well, because I play it a little more often and dig it. As I like to travel, pretty much all over, if I can hear a system here and there, I'll make an effort. Sometimes that which I know well isn't availa... 
Best Bang for your Buck DAC ?
@in_shoreNot to really come to his defense (djones51), he and I have disagreed significantly on a few things. One point I think he made in another thread, I must say was a pearl of wisdom - If someone is using a router, powering it with a linear p...
