    And I'm stuck with 3 S2000 MTMs. One sideways even.
    It's terrible and hurts my ears. And all the fans of MTM are sadly deluded.

      I invite everyone to check out my 'answer' to the MTM, the SAM16 array here http://techtalk.parts-express.com/fo...the-double-d-s

        I think MTMs begin to make a lot more sense for really small speakers, especially for home theater. The reverberant field in a stereo system is created by the off axis response of the 2 speakers. In home theater it is created by the direct response of a bunch of other speakers. Really HT is a more civilized way of reproducing sound, but that's a discussion for another time.

          I like to joke around here, but I do like Paul C's S2000 TM and MTM. I haven't even built the LR MTM pair yet, it's TM LR and MTM center.right now. Seems right sized for my space. I had the D'Appolito Audax HT suite kitted by Madisound for years. Then huge Schumakubins and BAMTM center with mega watts. The S2000 MTMs are pretty sensitive and work nice off my 90WPC AVR. Seems more suitable to me. Except the little TMs induce tiny speaker syndrome in me.

          I'm not a real critical listener, and I have a separate stereo system for music.

            In 40 years of listening to music I have never listen to a HT system that comes close to the sound quality of a dedicated two channel stereo for reproducing music. This includes several 100 K HT systems.
