Hi James

We have sound!

I hope your doing well and staying virus free. I appreciate you and everything done to get these speakers built. I remember meeting with you early one CES morning when Bryston speakers were just being released. You were so excited about this T Rex concept, with 2 speaker parts stacked upon each other and how you dreamed they would perform. I left that room 6-7 years ago SOLD! Now they are a reality. I remember you had some resistance on your T Rex concept. Thank you for not folding to the resistance.

The sound of the Active T-Rex is huge. The theater space is full, there is no area of the room where the saturation of sound isn’t. It even sounds so much better in our theater lobby. Details like drum brushes, horn note drops and vocal details are now so clear even in our lobby with the doors open. Our theater seats 18 people, it’s not a small space. The

T Rex speakers have a large volume sweet spot that excites, even at lower volume levels.My first demo response was WOW,WOW,WOW, I have not had chill bumps like that before!

What I like most about Bryston speakers is a value you seldom hear, and that’s the lack of listening fatigue. I have listened to music in our theater for 14 hours straight. Most, if not all speakers will not perform this way. The sound is amazing. We also added the Bryston TOW on wall speakers.


Now we are in Business. This room was meant for these speakers. I demoed the theater Saturday, and the response was continued WOWS and I’m getting chill bumps.

Thanks again
James Kliewer

Hi Folks,

We have a very detailed review coming up in Secrets of Home Theater magazine on our Bryston Middle T ACTIVE speakers with many measurements and listening comments.

Here is a email I received from the review so it should be a good one aye!






Hi James!

I know I sound like a broken record, but I really appreciate the opportunity to review such a fantastic loudspeaker and amplifier set.

Just remarkable stuff!

Awesome!

Please continue to stay safe and be well!

I have a pair of Middle T Active that I'm currently driving with a pair of 7B-ST for the bass and a pair of 3B-ST for the mids and highs.

Question: I've been looking for another pair 3B-ST to split the highs out but I have come across a pair of 2B-LP and was wondering if those would be safe to use as they're listed as 200W bridged at 8 ohm but the Middle Ts are 4 ohm?

I would love to upgrade to a pair of 21B 3 cubed but alas I can't afford those anytime soon so used market for now.

On a side note, I'm also considering getting a pair of 7B 3 Cubed - I'm guessing those work best in the bass section...am I wrong?

Hi

Are you using an BAX-1 electronic crossover?

Ok so I an not understanding what you want to do - are you thinking of replacing the two 3B's with two 2BLP's?

No, I would run the two 3B would be run bridged as mono for the mids and the two 2BLP would be run bridged as mono for the highs.

HI

No I would not do that - bridging a stereo amplifier reduces the ability of the amplifier to deliver instantaneous high current at lower impedances.

OK, as always thanks for all your input on these questions. I have one last one:

In my setup: pair of 7B-ST driving bass, and a pair of 3B-ST driving mids and highs of my Active Middle Ts, would you recommend upgrading the 7Bs to 7B cubed OR upgrading the 3Bs to cubed for the mids and highs? I know the 21B cubed would be best but I would only be able to afford making one of these mentioned upgrades anytime soon.

Thanks again.

James, continuing the conversation from Facebook, who should I reach out to for help with my speaker problem? After switching all cables from left to right, at the source, the pre, the BAX, the left speaker remains the one with the issue.

Hi,

I would have the dealer return the speaker to us for service.
If just the driver needs replacement then I am sure the dealer can accomplish that for you.

Unfortunately, I didn't use my local dealer, rather Music Direct.com.

I'll reach out to them, thanks.
