  1. What might this be/look like? Absorbing batts of 2" thick Roxul Rockboard extending out from the flange face covering the brick?
  2. Say more MEH master! What would happen to the back wave of the woofers without a box to seal them into? I have 2 of the 305 boxes you may remember...
  3. Flutes definitely sound more "open" with this arrangement 😄
  4. Won't be needing that wood anymore 😁
  5. Gotta get some real room treatments/absorption around the horns too! I have some half baked idea about fabricating absorbing panels that attach to the horn's predrilled mouth edges...
  6. Tried several things to get around the hole in the center effect of K402/Khorns 22 feet apart sitting 12 feet away but they probably really need a center. Not quite ballsy enough to cut one of my K402 and make a MEH, I found a way to mount one in the fireplace which allows the projection screen to still pivot down into place. Now what to do about bass?
  7. Thanks Chris. and how do you achieve that center channel from stereo 2 channel music? thanks for the much fuller explanation with only this question lingering.
  8. Well, that kind of answers it - you use stereo mode to pull in the subs. I get that you don't listen to much 2 channel music because it just isn't as satisfying compared to multichannel but what about the MEH with 2 channel music to anchor the image in the center? some modern version of PWKs center channel circuit? something derived from the 2 channels but not synthesized in the sense of adding any effects. Maybe just another memory preset on the Xilica could create this when there is no actual center channel.
  9. A question on integration of the MEH into your system as a center Chris. How do you run 2 channel playback through your Onkyo pre/pro? Direct with no center? Some kind of synthesized center like "3 channel stereo"? Do you find yourself processing 2 channel recordings into surrounds and sub as well? I don't quite have the balls to cut one of my K402s yet but I'll be experimenting with one as a center on a Cornwall bass bin driven by a 4592ND this weekend - so just wondering how you get the benefit with 2 channel recordings.
  10. Thanks for sharing your trouble and release Brenda! Music is indeed a mainline to our emotions! Your sharing prompted me to search the web for music healing and I found this related story of healing music after surgery. https://www.classicalmpr.org/story/2014/10/06/classical-music-healing I think I'll start a list of healing , uplifting, music for emotional release. I've had healing tears like you described in the past when singing along. There's something about that Mr. Sandman tune that's very nostalgic for me and I suspect many others - the 1954 Chordettes hit rather than the Chet Atkins though. and yes Klipsch plays my heart best too!
  11. Woah! 16hz?? You’ve got to be kidding me 😆 what do you mean by bass bin here? Are you using some additional box with the MEH box?
  12. Well! I guess I should just speak for myself - with a few fuzzy towels push pinned to the walls and some heavy drapes over the windows.🤨 Any pics of your cinema setup Ivaols?
  13. The Magicos in my very brief audition in an unfamiliar room were impressive in their detail and coherence on Steve Wilson's Even Less and some high rez jazz. But, I knew after a couple tunes that I couldn't go back to that buttoned down, canned, relatively lifeless sound. Big horns are too addictive! Tonight the flagship Maggies in a big room playing some classical piece custom recorded to sound like Jim Winey's 11th row concert hall seat. I've got to give props to the latest top dog from this premier designer but ...it's not for me. Too polite. Very nice background music. Again I'm addicted to the immediacy of the K402/horn loaded bass
  14. Bravo! Now you hear the power of getting some of the fundamentals correct. A real ear opener for me!
  15. Easy to see is right! I'll guess I'll just have to hear the auditory difference for myself. I've been meaning to get serious about room treatments for a long while now. Would you recommend the OP and I follow you down the absorption path with Auralex Sonofiber?
  16. Huh. So although the point isn’t to make this Xilica curve look like the hoped for FR curve, it is alot smoother now. And the shelves are gone. Maybe I was on the right track. I suspect the point is to measure the actual output FR in room not just plug in someone else’s settings 😸
  17. I also haven't heard Jubes but may have some sense of what they can do based on my K402/TAD 4002/Khorn bass system with Xilica active xover. While I haven't owned any of the high end speakers mentioned either I had a brief listening session at fellow audiophile's home of the Magico Q5 recently and am about to have a 1 hour demo of the Magnepan 30.7 flagship on Monday night setup and demoed by Wendell Diller on his regional tour. I'll report back after then.
  18. I’m glad you’re getting closer 😸. Please post the current Xilica graph to help educate the ignorant among us...me
  19. Actually, I was displaying my ignorance. Of course you're right, the Xilica graph doesn't correlate with FR. The point isn't to make the Xilica graph into a smooth curve. Again you're right, the REW sweeps are what we must look at to see the results of these Xilica changes. Sorry to all.
  20. @Ivaols Push on through to the ChrisA zone! His help going back and forth with sequentially better versions of the Xilica settings fine tuned for my room made a HUGE improvement for my first active setups. Once you get the mic, if you need any help setting it up with REW just PM me. I do computer tech support for a living.
  21. Maybe you’ve been working with ChrisA or someone more experienced overnight but I would say those two shelves are screwing things up. Try changing those to regular PEQ filters and adjusting the ‘db’ row (gain) and Oct row (how broad) until you get a smooth curve
  22. Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band - XXL on DVD-audio. Most dynamic, full surround, realistic recording/mix I've heard. I was looking for something to "WoW" me the way the old Sheffield Labs direct to disk vinyl used to when I was young. This did it!
  23. "Friends don't let friends buy Bose"
  24. More pics please! Nice room and building. Heating system sounds heavenly quiet - this from someone dealing with forced hot air... Did you try the speakers on the long wall?
