Re: Where are all the Spitfires?

I've had both the Blues and the Spitfires. IMO, both are great sounding speakers, but unfortunately for you it'll boil down to subjective opinion. I (personally) prefer the sound of the Blues, but that shouldn't be a shock as I basically designed them (with help from Meniscus). The Blues are a more ...

Re: Blues TM first ever build!

Re: The Axpona 2016 experience

Nice set of pictures and comments- it's been a while since I've been to a good show like this- used to get out to RMAF on a regular basis, but it's been about 5 years! Thanks, it really was a lot of fun. I've been to CES a couple times, numerous DIY shows, and Axpona a few times, but never RMAF. I'...

The Reclamations

This was a really fun project. The original plan was to build these for the Iron Driver competition, and we did, but we couldn't get the SB19 tweeter to get along with the TB W5 woofers. There was a nasty dip between (IIRC) about 2khz and 3khz that wouldn't go away, which made them sound really thin...
