I have a question about your omega speakers and I was hoping that you'd be kind enough to write back to let me know
1 - what are the driver's exactly in your speakers?
2 - how doues the bass compare with multiway floor standers? (like floorstanders from VSA, Usher or any other brand you know)
3 - what kind of music are the best and worst suited for?
Im a single river person but im really considering subs or bigger floorstanders thats why im asking. I also asked the price because I want to know what kind of value per dollar they offer. thanks again.
The drivers in the monitors are Louis' 6" alnicos as they are Super Alnico Monitors ($2000 - $2300 depending on veneer). The drivers in the powered woofers are Rythmik HS800 8" servo drivers with Rythmik plate amp. Brian sells these as kits for powered mid-bass modules. It is this: http://rythmikaudio.com/DS800ci.html
(the CI kit M7: one HX300 drives one DS800-3). About $750 for two kits with the multiple unit discount. You would have to build, or have Louis build as I did, enclosures for the woofers. So add the price for the enclosures.
IMO, this configuration (without subs) outshines many, if not most, multi-way towers in the bass department. You can set these plate amps to extend down to either 50Hz (typically when you are using subs) or 30Hz (with or without subs). Set at 30Hz, the bass is excellent. You have 350W amps with torroidal based power supplies for the woofers. If you use an external active xover, you can make for a very smooth transition at the xover point and lessen the load both on your low wattage main amp and the monitors themselves improving the mid-high performance.
Unless you like to crank thinks up beyond 100db, these handle whatever you throw at them. From jazz to classical. Bass heavy is fine. Though heavy bass for me would mostly be in reggae and R&B - not so much hip-hop or heavy metal, though they might do fine there as well. I just don't play it.
