I now have the flat 5 and Skinny 6's up and playing in a system.
When my wife first saw the Flat 5, she said, "that's it. That looks good." She typically is prepared for a monster sized speaker. She really liked how well in blended in with everything and was not noticed. And it was a cheap and easy Duratex coated cabinet.
Oh yeah, and it sounds great. Vocals during TV watching is much cleaner.
And I am testing these out, not with thousands of dollars worth of gear in a perfectly treated room, but with an inexpensive receiver and in a room with no room treatment.
These are the first speakers that I have designed specifically for little to no room treatment. The dispersion is controlled and the lower range that typically becomes boomy is left to the subs where there is more flexibility and control.
And for small speakers these really sound big. They can really fill the room.
Next I'll add some servo subs, a projector, and a large screen. And I might experiment with some room treatment because I can't help myself. I have to know what is ideal.
And I'll have to figure out a way to build an equipment rack and stand for the Flat 5.
