What happened to the Sunfire amp? Do you prefer the A-760x? Nice setup by the way!

Thanks. Sunfire is in the shop. Rabbit - My basement is almost completely underground so it's cinder block, wood studs and 70's thin paneling. I'd get weird echos/noise off the back wall, this fixed that issue.

You are going to like it. Next you will be wanting a C-19. :rolleyes:
The C-16 is black and will give the C-4000 a run for the money. Very nice system and welcome. O:)

Yea, see what you mean. Those panels got me reading on room design and speaker placement.
Apparently that is more important than I thought.
Now my brain is confused with sound waves, reflections and stuff guys like you know all about.
I am learning everyday from yall though.

Thanks! Tom at vintagehifipgh and I had been talking about this for awhile. We wanted to make a modified amazing silvers that had the drivers facing the sides and a few other ideas. I went with this. A 48" ribbon /8" driver /9.5" width /15" deep with a slotted port on the back. I think they are 59" tall. The cabinets are made out of oak and some plywood. The imaging is awesome and little driver does a good job of providing a punchy bass.

Here's a few pics of the building process. I guess I should have started a new thread.
