UPDATE: 5-1-2010 Finished pic enclosed. Interested build thread for those thinking of using cheap drivers.. 8)
I’ve noticed since my upgrade to the new Denon 5308CI(A) AVR, I’m getting a lot of program material being sent to my center speaker. It has a fantastic processing unit it it. I’ve been told that the center speaker should be able to sum the total of the mains. The new BluRay and new movie releases seem to be presenting more material to the center speaker as well.
I’m running a pair of Davis Acoustic 6.5 Kevlar woofers (MTM), Morel MDM 55 mid, and HI VI RTII planer ribbon in my center speaker now, but I think it can be improved. Legacy sports a large center speaker with dual 12s in a similar configuration.
I’m considering using a pair of the TD10S for a MTM design using 4 of the Audience A3 3″ full range speakers for my mid/tweeter line array between them, housed and partitioned in the same cabinet. I have them in a pair I built but I don’t use them. They are quite capable of handling the mids & highs up to 22,000 khz, being a very high quality full range driver.
What are your thoughts on this idea and how much minimum cabinet space do I need for each TD10s sealed? I do understand it would be a rather wide center speaker. I have a Mitsubishi 65″ TV & stand, so I can make it fit. I do tilt the center speaker up towards the listening area and this works quite well.
