    I was watching this thread with some sadness that people here would attack and insult a DIY system and not have the curiosity to investigate where this system came from and by whom it was made.

    A sad state of affairs;

    People have no perspective when they make a comment about the "preamp" which is an active crossover, equalizer and multi channel hand built device, in a time when there was no store bought options.

    All I have to say...nice surround system!!!! another audio genius who gets it ...lol

        You guys sure can be sensitive. This is what is considered poking fun. I don't think anyone is cutting the guy down.

          How else do you measure bass response? Your sub must not be big enough.

                I don't think anyone here is personally attacking the guy. I guess it is a "sad state of affairs" when not everyone can name drop every audio engineer. But I'm glad this thread gave you an opportunity to feel better about yourself.

                    No I took it as saying that is a lot of crap. It's a crude blue collar way of saying a lot of stuff. I have a lot of crap in my garage. Some of it is good crap and some is bad crap.

                        Well said sir. Well said.

                        I actually thought about the trolls coming out when I posted this. However, I weighed that against what I thought was cool, different than what I had seen before, and went ahead with it.

                          I would sure like to hear what all those tweeters sound like. Can they possibly sum into a coherent single source and be free from comb filtering / "phasing" effects at the listening seat?

                            I thought perhaps being mounted within the horn itself, with all those amps and the advanced signal processing at Burwen's disposal ( perhaps shading? ) that...

                              reading through this post makes me think it must be that time of the month for a lot of people. just because some one was an EE that designed noise circuits means you can not poke a little fun at the wall of electronics, that is ridiculous looking by any standards, even if it does sound great. if this post truly makes you sad, you have other issues you need to deal with. come on, lets have a reality check time out.

                                The thread title is just odd, with no reference to his accomplishments or bio.

                                The thread just seems odd to me, but who cares this is the internet.
                                Burwen is a legendary designer, not just an EE - you don't know what you are
                                talking about or you are trolling to inflame more people. You look ignorant to
                                me to be making such statements, but really I think you are trolling.
                                "EE that designed noise circuits " haha, nice bait for trolling.
