That was a good review. Those speakers have peaked my interest.Did i miss which level of M3's you had?How do they sound with low to moderate listening levels? Do they retain the dynamics that impressed you?Thanks
Hi Ron ~What amplifier are you using? The Spatial M3 is rated on the Spatial website as 94 db. I suspect an amplifier like my 2 watt Yamamoto A08S 45 SET might be challenged to play them. They look very appealing and the price seems reasonable.Thanks for posting the review. I'd love to hear them. The reviewer feels that they can give the Maggies serious competition.

...I think Clayton even mentioned working out a Demo Tour at one time here on AC to let folks get to know the Holograms better. I'm off to see if I can get Clayton wrangled in here for some feedback. Cheers!
I'll gladly volunteer to be first on the tour. M3 SE Turbo's please
Don, it looks like both the turbo and turbo-s models use a compression tweeter, with the -s variant using a newly developed custom one made for Spatial. I don't even remember if I got a chance to hear any of these at a show, and that would have been years ago now, so I'm sorry I have no idea as to differences in sound.drhoon, speaking generally about open baffle speakers, if you can get them about a meter away from the front wall so that the reflected sound from the rear of the drivers doesn't muddy the sound coming from the front, there are some things that open baffle speakers do that make them work very nicely in smaller spaces. If you are in a studio, you might be in an even better position than someone in a small one bedroom, as the room your speakers would play in would likely be bigger than someone using a living room in a one bedroom.My personal problem right now is that I am in the "small one-bedroom apartment" camp. The way I have to set furniture in the room that I have to work with would be very hard to put in OB speakers without all but positioning them like giant headphones . No matter how much I would really like to go OB again, I'm just not sure I can pull it off in the space I have.For you, bottom line is if you can place them right in the room, you're good to go.
Jonathon,Thank you for the response. The website is confusing. I revisited it. The specifications show no differentiation between the three models. It looks like each one has a compression driver with the Turbo S compression driver being different from the Standard and Turbo models. My original question is somewhat moot now. All models have compression drivers. The question remains, how the three compare in performance.
Clayton, thank you very much for jumping in here!I posted in another thread regarding the M4, but thought as your attention is here I might ask directly.Have you done any testing work with an open backed version of either of the compression drivers you are using to run the full frequency range of these speakers open baffle? My prior experience with another design based on a similar driver setup leads me to believe that it can work really well, and on the driver side that is only with modifying the back cap of a stock tweeter to open it up. I'm thinking even more could be achieved if one had control of the design of the driver itself.Any thoughts you would like to share would be welcome. Thanks again!
