Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

I have never heard the Original Carver Amazings...

With their flat woofers and 2x30" ribbons. I know my Carver Amazing Silvers don't sound like what was described about the original Amazings. I do know that the setup of the Platinums and Silvers is critical to having an awesome sounding speaker or having a crappy sounding speaker.

One thing I have read many time in posts on the forums is that when people knock these Carver Amazings either Platinum or Silvers, they didn't set them up properly per the owners manual. This happened to me at first until I sat down and read the manual carefully and set them up per the manual. Then after was like night and day, I have been happy ever since. You do need to have the correct room size or very close to the correct size to be able to set them up properly

I can't speak for the new Martin Logan's but from what I heard when I did spend hours auditioning them and pushing them, my Carver Amazings Platinum smoked them. The ML were a really good sounding speaker lower volume levels and I was just shocked that for so much money, they were not the speaker I expected. From the one post above about the type of music being played through them proves what I had suspected and heard when I auditioned them. The ML were a great speaker for slow moving music, but when complicated music is run through them, they could handle it at higher volume levels, and not very at that.

So I hope ML finally figured it out.
