Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Re: I've been reading this thread with great interest...

I came to a similar conclusion that you did. I went with the 10.1s with a Velodyne HGS-10 servo sub. The 10.1s use the same drivers as the 1.6, but just don't have the surface area, giving up the bass, but again, not a concern in my case. I liked the slim stature of the 10s.

I am getting very good results with the little Velo. It's very tight and once placed right, blends in completely. Running in parallel and crossed at 80. I've found that sitting the sub on the inside of the left speaker inline with both is the best position in my room. I don't think I would happy with larger maggies with no sub. I like the strong bass foundation of a sub. It really adds some authority to music. Although I can understand someone not wanting to use one, everyone has a preference.

My 10s are black with custom trim pieces. The trim is gloss black, invisible from the front, to match the HGS sub and my Meridian CD player. It's smoked plexiglass, but when attached to the black fabric it looks like black glass.
