I'm excited to report that I just took delivery of some custom Stiff Breeze speakers from Ryan yesterday! These speakers have a beautiful custom veneer and painted baffle and a ton of upgrades inside including jupter caps, dueland resistors, jensen wax impregnated inductors, western electric 16ga wiring and an isolated cross-over built into custom stands rather than in the cabinets. First impressions are extremely positive. It throws a very wide stage, has great tonality and resolution and is super engaging. I'm honestly not sure how this speaker never got more popular. As many of you know, Ryan isn't currently taking on new speaker projects until he's through with his existing queue, but this is a reminder that he's still out there working and making absolutely beautiful stuff. A big thank you to Ryan and Pete for soldiering through this with so much on your existing plates. I'm a happy camper.
That's a tough question, Roscoe as I never had the Ubers in my large living room (about 20x30) or with the same electronics. I was always intimidated by the very expensive custom drivers and also having beryllium tweeters around small children (not just my own, we entertain a lot). With that caveat in mind, the Ubers reached deeper and slammed significantly harder. The Ubers also threw a big stage (in the smaller 11x16.6 room) and probably had a wider sweet spot due to the extreme toe and wave guide. I think I might slightly prefer the RAALs to the T-Labs BE tweeter.Both speakers are wonderful destination products and clearly Vapor in voicing. Both look awesome in their own rights as well.
I'm really digging these speakers. They have exceeded my expectations and are keeping me up way too late at night. I've got a couple of Gallo subwoofers I'd planned to mate with these things, but thus far I'm really not motivated as things are sounding so good. Any other stiff breeze owners here?
Indeed they are.Thanks again, Bob for helping Ryan get these bad boys loaded into the freight truck!
Jason,While they don't have quite the slam of the Uber Auroras, the bass they produce on their own is satisfying. That said, I've had two Gallo subwoofers I purchased 2 years ago and never even used, which I'm curious to try... Why not, I've got them?They are supposed to be in my engineered room, but it seems something always goes wrong to stunt that systems progress.I'd be happy to have you out in the New Year when you've got some time. Should have em dialed in nicely by then.Fred
Still enjoying my Stiff Breeze in a small listening room. They replaced my Kef LS50 and my Harbeth p3esr. I always wanted to hear the Aurora's.
