A solid 90 lbs. each! $4999 / pairhttps://voltiaudio.com/razz/You can't go wrong!My $0.02,Pete
Solid rec by Pete! If I were shopping "easy to drive" at that price point I'd definitely be looking at Volti as well as Spatial and DeVore "O" series.
Daedalus are easy to drive, have a very different sound than Klipsch, but new models are well out of your price range
Did you mean to say "DeVore are easy to drive....." ?
No, he mentioned (actually provided a link to their forum here) Daedalus in his first post.
Then why did he quote my post? I said nothing about Daedalus.
ah well, there's the rub. the room (my studio) is 50' x 25', and three stories high, nearly a right-angle triangle, with the short end truncated. my hifi is on the short end - i think of the space as forming a giant horn. my desk is at the other end. my current setup is a 6 w/ch integrated tube amp and a pair of klipsch rp600M speakers. contrary to what you might expect, sonics are pretty good, up to the limits of the 600M's. (i was surprised to learn that the 600M's have been measured at only 89.6 db sensitivity, well short of the advertised 96db.) the sound-stage has good width and depth, and instrument placement is also pretty good, improving if your listening position is about 10' from the speakers. this is why i mentioned the cornwall IV's, since they probably move enough air to fill, or at least challenge this space. but i'm not sure if i care so much about that, since most of the music i play while i'm working is instrumental and small-ensemble jazz. the big orchestral stuff i reserve for my main system. since my new amp (line magnetic 210ia) is on the way, i've also been looking at the lower-priced LM speakers, which are at, or just beyond the limits of my budget. but man are they beautiful!
If it were me, I'd do a smaller main speaker and go for the Klipsch Heresy IV. Then I'd supplement that with 1 to 3 powered subs. Here's the reason. With the Heresy, your 6 watts will only go to powering the highs through the upper bass, while the subs will take over for the mid/low bass. This will allow your 6 watts to play much bigger because you've relieved them of the bass load. And you'll end up with much better bass overall because a good servo sub like the stuff from Rythmik are WAY better at bass than any tower speaker I've heard, regardless of price.
Interesting well thought out approach for a large room. One that I tend to agree with. Would you let the Heresy play full range or would you high-pass them? I'd think the latter would give even better results when using low wattage as amp would be relieved of the strain of producing the LF (with subs doing below the cutoff), resulting in a cleaner, louder and more dynamic output from the mains. No?I guess my point is that simply adding subs to supplement the bottom does not relieve the main amp of anything if the Heresys are allowed to play full range, and not high-passed.I would also say that in such a large space one would need to do near-field listening. Energizing a room that large for distant listening is near impossible.
Not .2 uf, it is .02 uf for 80hz 100k input impedance.
I usually build a small in-line connector. It consists of 4 parts total. A female RCA plug, wire, the .02uf cap and a male RCA plug. Wiring it is very easy. Connect the .02 uF cap to the positive pole on the female and male RCA connectors and connect the plain wire to the negative pole of the female and male RCA connector. I also use some heat shrink to re-inforce it to give it more strength.
