    That tweeter is out of stock. Can it be substituted for the RS28A-4?
    He answers that question in post #11.

    Jeff;
    You asked if I have an amp that will handle 4 ohm speakers. It's an RX-V3900 Yammy which I think should be able to do it. I would place a center channel below my screen in a piece of furniture I am designing, it would have a shelf/pocket to accomodate the speaker cabinet, essentially placing it in a pretty large baffle (the furniture and the monitor surrounding it.) The speaker would be about listening height or a little below. Since the crossover is pretty low and 4th LR, from what I've read, it should work ok as a center.
    Once again, thanks for your valuable input.
    Steve

I built an earlier pair that was first powered by the MCM Biamp plate, but just didn't have enough output, so we stole the amps from a pair of Behringer B2031A's to power then with. Again, this project that I posted is all passive.

    Thank you.

    I'm questioning whether or not the statements will give me the output I want with my sub when they only have one of the RS180's and your design has two of them.
    Depends on how loud you want to play them. I would think mine will have higher power handling. And they will hit +6dB more output in the low end due to the extra woofer.

    I noticed in your profile that these speakers have their own plate amp's,
    I am keen to know who built these and how many watts they produce.

    Thank you.

    Jeff, how are these on the SPL side and low end extension compared to the Statements Monitors? I'm having second thoughts about those and their ability to integrate well with my 15" sub.

    I mean the 10uf, and I mean taking it to around 13uf for a starting point.

    No, it is not. The crossover would have to change slightly. That was why I was hesitant to post this, but several people sent me emails asking me to anyway. With the current version there would likely be a small dip in the crossover range. Increasing the first cap a little should smooth that out though, but I haven't done any work with that combo to see, and since I don't have these drivers anymore, I can't do that right now. Some people might like it better with the dip. It would only be a couple dB.

Of course you can predict my next question, what changes would be needed to lay one of these down for a center channel?
    Out of the question due to the MTM vertical/horizontal issue?
    Many thanks for a beautiful project.

    Due to the fairly low crossover point, if it were directly in front of the listening area it wouldn't be too bad placed horizontally. I am not certain without really digging into it what the angle of the listening window would be though.

    However, can your home theather amp handle a group of speakers that all drop below 4 ohms?

    I'll bring these down to DoubleTap's in May so you can hear them.
