  2. How did you setup your k402s...do you aim directly at the MLP, before MLP, or after mlp? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  3. I actually like the more raw vocals sound better...maybe down the road I will like to try a more polished vocals, but for now no. I will have to see if I can dig up my old rew mlp settings for the JBLs to see how they were different with Dirac. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  4. I am loving the MEHs so much, and I am glad I decided to try them out! I used to have the JBL 2360As with the same horn drivers, and Q Pies, they def do not sound the same. On some songs I get a more raw sound that makes the singer sound like they are in the room. With the JBLs the sound of vocals were more of a polished, warmer sound. The bottom end on the MEHs is a fuller sound and appears to be digging a little deeper too. I have moved the speakers as far in the corners as I can, and I think the bass is even better than when we measured. I am still listening to see if there is any fine tuning that needs to be done other than placement and acoustic panels. Currently the soundstage is wide and some instruments sound like they are right next to me...12' from the rack in front of me. Absolutely awesome sounding. I am wondering if my results might have something to do with the different size ports that we made because we were kr8g8nally goimg to go OB with them...which btw is also a great sounding way to go. Theis even more,spacios, but did not dig down as low,, so I had cabinets made. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  5. If you have not ever heard a pair of [mention=62555]Chris[/mention] A MEHs... I seriously suggest you do! I am very impressed with how mine turned out, and there is no way I could buy anything that would sound as good as these are for anywhere near what I have invested. Look for a used pair of k402s, and save some money too. I went the budget route and got EV DH1As, and then a new pair of Emminence kappa 15Cs...DH1As go for about $100 each used. They are not that hard to build either. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  6. I have the center channel completed, and installed on its new angled stand, and my left and right channes are setup now in their positions.@Chris A do you want to work on the tune now or do you want to wait until I get the wood versions built? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Chris. I was wondering because I am putting together a wood/MDF horn that is modeled off the short side of the k402 and will be square. I intend for this to be a surround version that will be smaller, and was not sure if I should go with 2 15" woofers or 2 or 4 smaller woofers with the cabinet being almost half the size. I did not want to have to change the ports to change to a different size woofer, after the horn was setup for 15" woofers. Any recommendations on woofers for a 25" x 25" horn?

  8. How does the compression ratio of the ports affect the sound...is it efficiency? What happens if you have less compression ratio vs higher compression ratio vs 10:1? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  9. Just in case anyone is a veteran...you get a nice discount on Tidal. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  10. Yes the i7 is windows 10... I also use it occasionally for Photoshop...hencewhy I was wondering if the i3 would be e ough on Manjaro Linux.If not I will buy a other i7 NUC in the spring for Rock. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  11. I agree 100% with your comments, and I am glad you clarified. I am running Roon on win 10 (which I hate with a passion). I also have Linux Manjaro on a i3 NUC...would that be good enough for Roon? I use a ssd on a USB3 dongle(?),foer all my music and a MSATA Drive inside the NUC. I urr3 tlyplay music through Roon via my Yamaha cxa5100 via Music cast or directly to my tablet when I use headphones. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  12. Not meaning to argue, but doesn't the Lumin app run on a computer? Now if you mean a desktop computer, I can understand that is no longer needed since computers are much smaller now, and come in many forms..like tablets, and even cell phones. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  13. Roon requires a computer...I was under the impression that media players are basically a computer too. What is the difference besides price, and shielding for noise? I run a i7 NUC for Roon which is still a computer. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  14. Looks great! I currently have my center sitting on a furniture dolly until I make a stand for it so I can angle it up to the mlp. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  15. I was listening to music when I heard the thud...it was not a loud thud as I was listening at 90db or less. This is what I found... I am not driving the speakers hard at all. I am just worried that when I install the woofers there is only a fingernail of clearance and that leaves me almost zero clearance. With such a small amount of clearance it would not take much for them to hit. I have read where others have installed woofer rings with these woofers, and also some that have not. I want to be sure that when these ara fully tuned, I will not have any problems. As far as the thud I only know it is coming from the woofers. If I push on the woofer they do have some movement, but I have no idea how much they are moving when I hear the thud sound. If I stick my finger in the port the woofer is hardly moving at all.
