Re: Stonehenge begins

I'm not so sure I'd try to use Carver ribbons for a surround system ?!?!?!? They are so directional, and surround is supposed to more ambient than a ribbon is designed to be??
There really shouldn't be that much of a "sweet spot" for surround sound, as where the ribbons really only sound good IN the sweet spot, and roll off if you are out of it.
Surrounds should project the rear channels all over the back of the room... not shooting them directly at you.
Surround is the one time I could to recommend BOSE and not feel like a traitor :lol:
Personally I prefer Mirage Omnisat speakers for surrounds. They are small, and can project a BIG sound.
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

Re: Stonehenge begins

Well, you will be sitting in the sweet spot. The deal was to make the timbre correct.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Re: Stonehenge begins

Yes, Timbre me shivers!

Anyway, I'm gonna try something. In that these are dipolar, I might just face them towards the back of the room (and they will fire forward too. Thanks for the thought, James. Might take the felt off the back, too, and put more open cell reticulated foam in its place.
