General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Magico speakers...

Magico loudspeakers are well designed and executed. Although I have no experience with the S3 Mk. II, the S5 sounds quite good in my experience. It is important to choose a loudspeaker that will take full advantage of the room and the Magico needs to operate well away from corners and walls, much like planar magnetic and electrostatic loudspeakers. Does your room allow for such placement? Appropriate acoustic treatment of the room is vital and is often more important than the ancillary components.

If "pressurizing" the room is important a pair of mid-sensitivity acoustic suspension loudspeakers based on dual 8" woofers may not be ideal. "Chest pounding" bass is actually found between 60Hz and 100Hz and requires sound pressure levels of about 100dB for most listeners. A pair of freestanding S3 Mk. II speakers should produce that at 12 feet with 260 watts per channel. The addition of subwoofers may be of substantial benefit, particularly if the room is large or first octave extension is desired.
