Re: bass bins

So, you're listening to the Oris "sans bass" right now? I'm probably going to buy one of the kits with a bass cabinet. I figure, that mounting the horns on the bass cabinets would give a better image/soundstage height. When I listen to some box speakers, I always notice that the sound is coming "from below". Which is one thing I like about Maggies and other planars.

Call me weird, but I sort of like the monolithic look of Maggies (and other large panel speakers). I just had to play "Sunrise" from "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" on my maggies once I got them. It seemed appropriate for somereason. :-)

I don't know if I like the look of horns, but looks really aren't important in my case.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of DIY work for the Oris 150s, at least for the horn part. Am I mistaken about this? I don't know if I'd want to build the bass cabinets myself, I haven't learned to love woodworking. But, I can have a friend do it.
