FullRangeMan, This speaker was going to be for my Latino VTA-120 TUBE power amp, so the speakers need to be more efficient than the Carver Amazing Silvers. If the VTA-120 could push the Amazing without any issue I wouldn't be having to make another speaker and would just be happy with Carvers for both systems. The Carver's are a really nice speaker and with some of the tweaks I did sound better than stock. I have an EDGE M8 power amp for the Carvers and it sounds nice and the bass shakes the windows! I also have the Carver Loudspeaker Control system module for them too which work nicely, the Carver Amazing Silvers can throw a very wide soundstage with this unit egaged but I prefer without. The unit also has a "Q" control for controling the "Q" of the speakers.
On placement of the Carver's, I used the Carver setup/placement user guide and the instructions are dead on correct. So I have followed and have never had a issue with sound. The bad experiences and feedback about the Carver Amazing not sounding good or bass shy is mostly due to the users not follow the Carver Amazing setup instructions. For these speakers you need to have a good size room for proper placement.
The Open Baffle project I came here for help was for the second system that has all Tube gear and power amp. So this is why I need a more efficient speaker system.
Thank You for the help, I really appreciate it.
