    Impressions of KEF LS50?

    As long as the stands aren't so low that it affect baffle step, i'd just tip them back until the tweeter is pointing at your ears. Mine at home are too low, so I just put some large rolled-up balls of Blu Tack under the front corners of each speaker to angle the tweeters towards my ears.

    Power Sound Audio Subwoofer in Stereo System?

    BL is dominated by Re and Vas, so BL on it's own doesn't tell you the whole story. Also, what I said above is correct and can be proven in any half descent software. You don't need more BL to overcome the air spring. Although, a more powerful motor is disirable for other reasons.

    Power Sound Audio Subwoofer in Stereo System?

    If you model a speaker in a sealed box of a given size and then reduce it, the SPL at a given input power reduces. You then have to increase the power to achieve an equivalent SPL. As long as your driver can handle the power (thermal power handling) then you can just keep reducing the box size. This will raise Qtc and CAN cause a peak in the response, but this obviously depends on what the Qtc was to start with.

    Deciding on two sets of speakers ?

    Have you never heard a live drum kit being played and felt the thud go through your body?

    Deciding on two sets of speakers ?

    With the last speakers I built, I could feel the midbass punch me in the chest. They had an f3 of around 55hz and a pretty sharp roll-off, so no deep bass at all.

    Floor stander Virgin

    Agree. Also Harbeth are supposed to be good at low volume.

    Proac 1SC - dead tweeter or crossover problem?

    If it's a break in the voice coil wire, you can sometimes take the tweeter apart, unwind a turn and solder it back up.

    So, if you could go back in time...

    From Harbeth to Tannoy in a 15' x 9' room?

    If it wasn't for women, all speaker would be big.

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    Well, you learn a new thing everyday.

    That's definitely a bit part of the problem. Compliation cds and remasters are often the worst offenders and it can easilly be seen if you compare the same track from the original album in Audacity. You only have to compare cd vs vinyl over at the Dynamic range database to see that vinyl is usually better.
  12. This argument (subjective vs objective) has been going on for years on hifi forums and i've learnt that it's best to keep out of it because they just go round and round and round and round in circles. No one ever changes their opinion, and it just causes people to get annoyed with each other.
