Finished the speakers day after thanksgiving with a lots of help from my dad while my mom was babysitting….
Had some issues with the gloss paint that I will discuss if anyone is interested at a later point. Will post pics at some point as black speakers in a badly lit room are hard to shoot.
Now, wanted to post a short review as they are still breaking in along with my ears. Have also been playing around with position and feel I don’t yet have it perfect.
Spectacular, honestly lived up to my expectations and more. Blows my previous reference system out of the water along with my headphone setups(which I was not really expecting).
Detailed and revealing without ruining the listening experience on sub-par recordings. This was an issue I discussed with Rick as I’ve had problems with previous systems.
Bass is amazing and headroom is crazy. These things get LOUD. Soundstage and depth is like nothing I’ve heard before, honestly just totally different experience then I’ve ever had.
Vocal realism and clarity is mind blowing. I listen to a lot of mid 90s British stuff, massive attack, Portishead. These guys are hard on speakers due to the bass. Ricks speakers handle it better than I could have hoped for. Honestly this was a huge make it or break it moment for me as ive tried so many setups to get these records to work and it finally does. Sealed is great, totally different to the ported speakers and subs I’ve gone through.
My issue now is dealing with my crappy room. More updates to that as I play around more with measurements and the dsp and rew…however I will say all the corrections ive tried don’t sound as good as just leaving it alone. Ive got a LOT more to learn and some more ideas so ill get back to this.
Thanks Rick should have just gone to you years ago!
