  • Classix 2.5 "Center Channel"

    This is a question for Paul Carmody or anyone that may have this knowledge. I was looking at the Classix 2.5 and I already own a pair of Classix 2 that are still my favorite speakers. I wanted to see if it is possible to make a Classix 2.5 as a Center Channel, perhaps turned on its side in a MTM configuration?
    Shaken, not stirred...

    Good question, the Classix II are great speakers and the 2.5 should be great, too. I have the parts for a 2.5 build but have not as yet the excuse to do so: still have another project to do first.

    We do our listening in stereo so I hadn't thought about a centre channel, but apart from a new cabinet, I assume they would need a different crossover?

    Will look forward to the answer(s)!

      That's an interesting idea, you don't see many (any?) 2.5 center channels. The horizontal off axis sims much better than a standard 2 way MTM on its side. Adjusting the value of L4 and the tweeter padding might get you in the ball park.

        Years ago I asked Paul Carmody about a center channel to use with my classix 2 I built. He recommended his DIII refried as a center. Perhaps that might work with the classix 2.5?

          Hello

          I remember that discussion, but imagine that the sound would be a bit different to the Classix as the DIII refried used the RS28 tweeter - which is no longer available anyway.

            Sorry I'm late to this discussion. Anyway, I think the 2.5-way center channel would work fine. I say go for it.

            Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

              Paul are you saying to create a classix 2.5 mtm center or are you referring to another center channel? If you are saying to build the classix 2.5 as a mtm do I need to make any other changes?

              thank you for your input.
