  1. Just for fun I’ll throw in another form of woofer loading used by McIntosh, Pipe Dreams and Scaena. That is to use a woofer in a box where the bass resonance is octaves below the crossover. Of course the woofer doesn’t want to move so it must be forced to by using tons of power and equalization. Because its used only below resonance(Scaena crossover was around 65 Hz and box resonance was 180 Hz) there is essentially no bass overhang, super tight bass. Of course you must use a driver that can absorb tons of power, not an audio driver but a sound reinforcement driver or something similar like those used in open air concerts.

    Just something to think about that’s not the usual way of doing things but one that has much positive to consider.

  2. I visited about four years ago and auditioned these speakers in MR3 (?) with my select SACD’s. Found them very clear with great imaging. I thought that they were IRS killers.
    Wondered what happened to them. Someone will get a very fine set of speakers.
