    Re: Core 2-Way - Build Tread

    Wow! You hit that one out of the ballpark. Really tastefully matched to the fireplace--which is also beautiful, by the way. These will be going on my website soon. :D
    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

      That would be an honor. Let me know if you need any info or higher res pics.

          Is there a "Favorite Tech-Talk post" thread? This one will be hard to beat.

            That's really funny. Let me tell you my counterpoint story...

            (my parents come over to visit)
            My wife: Paul's been doing lots of speaker designs lately for people all over the world!
            My parents: Are you charging for it?
            Me: No.
            My parents: Well, Paul, that's nice that you want to be so generous, but your time is worth something.
            Me: I know. But I like it. I like the experience of it.
            My parents: But you gotta charge something. Even if it's just an hourly fee.
            Me: Well, sometimes people "pay" me in drivers.
            My parents: Well, I suppose that's good that they're paying you in goods. But still, wouldn't it be nice to make some extra money?
            Me: I don't know. I have a day job. This is my hobby. I like the creative challenge of it; it keeps my mind active.
            My wife: But Paul likes doing this.

            ...and the conversation kind of dwindles from there. Anyway, I like to share my talents, and I like to entertain--and I REALLY like music. I don't see this as a viable source of income anyway. I can make much better "side money" just playing a few nights in an orchestra pit.

            I'm very glad the speakers have been well-received, Mark. It's time to update my website and post this design.

                Well, I can tell you that I think the OS MTM's have great presence and get better and better. About to pair them w/ a variation of your Pony sub (build thread to come).

                My sister has commented frequently on how much she likes the Swope MTs I gave her for Christmas. Combined them w/ a DTA-100 amp for a ncie compact package.

                I'll be heading down the core road as well.

                  Super job, reminds me of Frank Loyd Wright's style of homes.
                  It's also kinda like a "light house" the port at the bottom is the
                  door for the light house keeper to enter, the 7" driver is the
                  high powered candle and of course there is a roof on top to keep
                  everyting dry and cosy for the lonely guy. Neat stuff.

                  Of all the enclosure I have built out of cardboard the "Amiga's"
                  are my wifes favorite. She says Amigo guys love to sing and
                  dance and are always happy.

                  How come you changed the tweeter?

                  Are you getting a full range of sound out them?

                  Do you need a subwoofer for listening to Pat Metheny's/
                  Charlie Hayden "Under Missouri Sky"?

                  How come you didn't buy the Totem Forrest's for $4000
                  Canadian dollars?. Your speakers look a lot more expensive
                  than the Forrests.

                    I like the look of the RS Tweets and Paul offered to design it.

                    Are you getting a full range of sound out them?
                    IIRC Paul designed these to hit in the 30's on the low end. I can only hear to 12,000 so the top end is way more than enough.

                    Do you need a subwoofer for listening to Pat Metheny's/
                    Charlie Hayden "Under Missouri Sky"?

                    Haven't listened to that CD but I have no doubt that it would sound good. These are setup for music only (without a sub) and in my opinion they do not need a sub. Bass Guitar, Kick drums and tympanies sound fantastic on these speakers. Not sure what to call it but, very crisp and clean. i.e. not muddy in the least (if that means anything).

                    than the Forrests

                    Thank you. It was a tough descision. As much as I love throwing money out the window when driving on the freeway, I also enjoy woodworking.

                      Please let me know which freeway and when you will be driving by when your fingers and wallet feel itchy. I'll be there. :D

                        Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, it has been helpful
                        in getting my thinking more focused.

                          I don't think Paul would state he's a genius, but he def has his own knack for it. I'm glad to call him friend and peer.

                              After living with these speakers for a while what are your long term thoughts? I'm thinking about doing these as a first build. I've been reading a whole lot on the forums, in books, in designs, and I think these would be a good first build for me.

                              Thoughts?

                                Remever that I am "slightly" biased but I absolutely love these speakers. Everything I play thru them is crisp. I found a renewed interest in my Rippington and Pink Floyd CD's. I am sure you would be happy with any of Paul's computer series.
