RE: Audiostatic ES100 Sound Problem

From the review I read in Stereophile from 2011, it seems to be a touch lean below 300 hz and and is good to about 50 hz.

They remind me of the Acoustat 1+1s used in the HT which appears to have a bit more panel height. What they do, they do very well. Both are modestly sized. I supplement the bottom octaves with a pair of subwoofers to both extend their reach and reduce their excursion needs to improve dynamics.

There's nothing else like panel area. Think U-945.

It is also possible the diaphragms need to be re-tensioned. I would consult their manual or guidance as to that process. I learned the Acoustat recommendation when I met Jim Strickland in '76 for the model X. Similarly, I've discussed this topic with Dr. West concerning the Sound Labs. Some "stator slap" can be addressed by very careful use of a dryer or heat gun.
