Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Not available in Canebrra anymore!

I do remember Apogees on Krell MBs on demo in Melbourne and picking that the absolute polarity was out. Much surprise when it was switched and was right.

Ported speakers' Q at fb is more important than that they are ported, imo. A critically damped or over-damped alignment works best IME and the corpus of reviews seems to confirm that.

I have heard quite a few 63s over the years and can usually get them a lot better in a given room. I've done two set-ups with those Scandinavian dipole woofers, and they needed to be pointed almost at right angles to that used for the main's midbass and on up. Which kind of made them useless as stand-subs. Both owners were a bit peeved but bought new stands, ;-)!

I'd only be guessing but in much larger rooms this might all be easier.

Distributed subs near corners and under my mains is where I am going, with the tower of spheres plan.
