Ric if you go back and read post 109 (your post) on the previous page, if that isn't bad mouthing Danny's designs, I don't know what is. Maybe it wasn't intended to come across like that, but I'd say it did. There are a lot of very happy customers out there with the designs you mentined, don't think I've ever heard a complaint about any of them.
That being said, I do agree with you that the only way for people to know what the difference is, is to actually try, without doing so, it's hard to say what a person will hear or feel.
As I mentioned, I was never the slightest bit disappointed in either the duals or triples with a reversed driver, my reason for doing the latest build with all 3 drivers facing forward was for appearence and also because I had a few people ask me just how unbalanced the cabinets would be if they were to have the drivers all face forwards... I didn't really know so I tried it.
There is a difference in stability, you can tell they are more rear weighted if you push on them... will they tip over, no not unless a deliberate attempt is made to tip them... the same could happen with a standard version.
I was surprised when I noticed some sonic differences using the same 6 drivers and same amps with the settins untouched, I had simpoly swapped the drivers from one pair of cabinets to the other
Saying people will be blown away by the sonic differences is a huge exaggeration IMO. Do I hear a difference, yeah, a bit more impact/focus and an icrease in output (I had to reduce the gain on each A370 by 3 or 4 clicks). Am I blown away, no but I will say I'm pleased with the unexpected result
Rich, would be cool for you to try a couple of your modules with both facing forwards as you mentined, wouild love to know results
