Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

mad speaker decision

ive been using quad 989 speakers for my main listening for a few years now. recently removed some old PA speakers from my church and on a lark hooked them up at home. These things are ugly. big horns free standing on a massive plywood bass horn enclosure with a 15" driver. really thought the bass would be huge. oddly they sound great with small music, accoustic, vocal, think nora jones, late johnny cash. big rock causes fatigue. When i went back to the Quads they were almost boring. better sound top to bottom but boring. The horns had very little bass but the top end and midrange were positively exciting. I love my quads but they lac the excitment and dynamics of the horns. any suggestions for a middle ground or best of both worlds.
