Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: I have heard the big Martin Logan speakers...

I had the original Carver Amazing speakers. They were my first set of quality speakers. They had prodigious bass down to 20 Hz, but the midbass was tubby, as I realized after my listening ears got more sophisticated. If they were pulled away from the back wall and there was some kind of damping material on that wall, they could do outstanding imaging.

Unfortunately, the Mylar ribbon for the drivers has a habit of coming loose. Carver told me to use a hair dryer to tighten it. I did that for a while until it didn't work. Finally I had to send the ribbons for repair, then sold the Carvers to someone who was happy to receive them.
