These things continue to get more impressive as they break in. Increasing the volume only makes the sound bigger and they seem to simply ignore the room because no frequencies come close to loading the room. The super Vs could load my room at particular low midrange frequencies at very loud volumes.
Switch the speakers back and forth so that the long wing is on the inside/outside and see which option you prefer.
With the wings on the outside I got decreased soundstage width but a stronger center image and they sound ever so slightly more dynamic when I swapped them. I'm not sure which configuration I like better.
Paint the woofer magnet black. Sticks out like a sore thumb.
Beautiful speakers, great job on the build and flat packs.
Its not as bad as it looks in the picture. I had an overhead light and a fairly bright lamp on and then on top of that I used a flash. Under normal conditions you can still see them a little but its no where near what they look like in the picture.
**UPDATE** I definitely prefer the side wings to the inside. I take back what I wrote earlier (pycho-acoustics maybe?). The midrange is just loads better with the wings to the inside.
