Danny,

Do you have any idea what the -3dB point would be with three M165-16 woofers?

Also, any recommendations for the plate amp?

Danny

 I'm going to take you a few years with question. How would the bass be compared to my Criterion's

Thanks Scott

They are sealed rather than ported. So they give up a little bit of extension to your Criterion's. But they are very clean and tight.

SO glad I found this thread, since the monitors aren't on the website yet!
I'm in Lafayette, Indiana, and would love to audition these if available from the gentleman in Valpo.
Can't send PM yet, but maybe I can receive one, if you see this?

The Website is going to get a whole make over soon.

These are simple the Studio Monitor model.

For these would you all recommend sealed subs or OB subs?

It really depends on your room. Either will work fine with the speakers.

I hear people talking about how it is to blend subs with speakers, in many contexts. In your experience, what are the pinch points?

Also, go Packers, and death to the rainy city bitch pigeons. Love me NFL playoffs!

The real factor that determines which subs are best for you depends on how far you can pull them out into the room. Open baffles subs need to be three feet or more out there and more is better. For small spaces or spaces with limited locations, the sealed sub will work out best.

So placement then would be the primary concern...  do OB subs need to be pointed towards the listening position or can they be placed 90* off axis against a wall (so null area is against the wall)?

You can place them straight ahead in the room or towed in towards the listener.

You developed these as studio monitor speakers.

I am wondering, would you suggest these as a good computer speaker/desktop speaker.. assuming you had a good amp and dac plugged into them?
I currently run some olld DCM CX07 bookshelf speakers and they do well but I am looking for something more. How are they as near field speakers?

Has there been any more progress on the floor standing version? I'm about to place an order for these but am interested in the floor stander or version with separate bass module.

Thanks.

They will work great in those applications as long as you have the space for them. They are not small speakers.

I haven't done any more towards a floor standing version yet.

The obstacle with them becoming a larger passive design is that it makes them less room friendly for the smaller rooms that theses were designed for. Adding lower woofers that are active or powered with a separate plate amp allows them to be much more flexible and adjustable.

So ideally just add a servo sub.

I think Peter is working on flat packs for this one.
