  1. Is this documented anywhere? I am just about to spend some time with my Mic and REW Measuring and hearing for myself whether or not the K 402 / TAD combo bolted Back into their KPT305 boxes makes any audible difference Versus mounted in its stand. I won’t bother if Roy or somebody has already proved that there’s no difference… Edit: Actually now I realize those are different questions. Whether or not an extended baffle beyond the flange of the horn makes any difference / improves the sound. Whether or not damping of the horn vibrations by mounting it by the flange holes to something makes any difference / improves the sound.
  2. Nice job on the Industrial Renovation. Norton, eh? Guess they know good speakers in my home town!
  3. Never tried to mod it. Maybe I should be considering some larger gauge for the 20 ft. run from the amp but...
  4. I read this through a couple of times but didn’t find the basic measurements of the speakers.
  5. Thank Hope someone else is buying these. I seriously considered trying to find room but I won't be greedy. A unique looking and I'm sure fabulous sounding set of Tom/Jubes!
  6. After all these years I guess I still don’t understand how this works. I don’t see how attenuating the preamp processor output into the high powered amps gets the amps any higher above the noise floor. It certainly doesn’t drive them closer to full output where their specs measure best. For that we would have to attenuate the amp output between the amp and speaker. I guess what you’re driving at and I know is true from personal experience is that it’s better for lowering overall system noise to have the preamp/processor swing a wider voltage range. Getting THAT device into its low noise range. I also know from personal experience that it’s very handy with biamped and triamped active systems to have a gain control on the amps for gain balancing. I agree that the NC 400 kits are super easy! No soldering! I use mine on my DTS 10 subs but Claude you’ve got me curious to find out if their first watt is as good as my FirstWatt SIT2 😸
  7. Interesting stuff Chris. Not sure I'm going down the Dirac path yet. I'll start my own thread about multi-channel system setup or search some more so I don't derail this review thread.
  8. Off-topic warning. I would like to do the same on my setup which is similar to yours Chris. You've been very generous with your time and expertise in recent years helping me dial in various 2 and 3 way combos. I wonder if you've already written or have an outline of steps to tuneup the whole 5.1 system? A PM, or link to already existing post/thread would be appreciated. I'd like to get my system not only sounding its best but even more following the trail you're blazing with yours. I could also start my own thread with my attempt at an outline which we could discuss.
  9. In your example I find it odd that a low-pass filter would be applied to the center and surrounds. Wouldn't they more likely get a high-pass because they might not be very capable down low? I agree I tend to prefer a "user-controllable and known process". To that end I may try some 2 to 5 channel configurations in my Xilica 4080 MiniDSP setup since I could have at least rudimentary if static control over channel routing/mixing, level, phase, delay, and high-pass/low-pass.
  10. I read through that as best I could, unlike Pondoro having no understanding of the math I also don't understand the testing procedures or statistical analyses. I was looking for the word "Yamaha" and/or some clue as to how they implemented their algorithm so I might try to replicate the results or at least hear what they were getting at. The only bit I could find is that they used Philips DSS940 speakers. This article is from 18 years ago but perhaps now there is software that let's one enter some of those equations and play around with audio algorithms...?
