Well, I think after going thru all kinds of speakers which I will list so you get a pic of where I am coming from: In no particular order,
1. early model Edgarhorns
2. Quad ESL-63
3. Oddysey Loreleis
4. Tannoy Monitor Gold 12’s
5. Tannoy DMT-12 II
6. Tannoy HPD-385’s
7. Bozak Concert Grands
8. EV 12trxb’s
9. JBL L-96
10. Mission 774’s and 772
11. Wharfedale Modus somethin’
12. Pinnacle Classic Aerogel (awesome).
13. PAudio 12″ coaxials.
14. Allison’s 110 8″ monitors
Current setup, which all I can say leaves all above in the dust, and that is without an optimum cab for the woof.
18sound ND1460 compression drivers, driven with Pilot SA-232 (el 84)
18sound XT1464 black waveguides.
Lambda TD15M woofers, driven by Pilot SA-260 (el 34)
Behringer active 3 way crossover
Preamp is Pilot SP-210
Cannot express enough awe at how nice this vintage gear sounds thru these speaks..In the near future, the woofers will go into larger cabs:
