It's great to hear such enthusiastic support for Spatial products. Can some of you comment on associated equipment e.g. amplification? Are these speakers power hungry, need help on the bottom end, etc. How many of you bought them without hearing them first? Thank you
Powering my M4's with a Class D Audio SDS250. Bought without listening. Just a lot of reading. My room is 11X12X9 and is treated. It was an echo chamber when we moved in.
Tried some powered monitors. Added a Rythmik sub and sounded pretty good. Could never get the sub "just right".
Moved onto some Magnepan MMG's. Worked pretty good in here 30" from the front wall and me sitting about 6-7' away. They needed a sub. Same problem. I think I just wanted a speaker where I didn't need a sub.
Read a lot about open baffle speakers and how they work in small rooms. Was gonna buy some Caintuck speakers to see what all the fuss was about OBS. Then I read a review by John Darko describing the M4's as a good step up from the MMG's.
I found a smoking deal on a used pair of M4's and pulled the trigger and never looked back. Sold the sub a short while after.
When I first fired them up I couldn't believe how different the bass sounded. Still don't have words to describe other than realistic.
Hope this helps a month later.
