Something about my room is sucking out 100-400hz. I have corner traps in the front corners, and corner over the speakers, and 2" panels behind my Maggie 3.5s to tame the worst of the rear reflections. I also have some material behind the seating position to tame reflections from behind.
Moving in with my beloved, and have to replace Magnepan 5.1 system. (3.3R, CC3, 10)
Not enough room, etc etc.... :-(
Help me find happiness in small boxes!!!!!!
Keep me from leaping off the Ben Franklin bridge?
A sweet sonic beauty of an amp designed by the legendary designer John Iverson. (Google: John G Iverson for an interesting read.) I have owned many different amps, both tubes and solid state, but this unassuming Plain Jane looking amp is the very best and continues to satisfy with rich textures...
Hi: I wonder if anyone has heard both the Magnepan 3.7's and Sierra Towers and would offer their thoughts. Although I like many things about the Maggie's, they may not be optimal for home theater, my primary use for them. They excel with Jazz and Classical, as was pointed out by a reviewer in...

I was looking for nice looking on-wall speakers and saw some used MMG (I know those are not really on wall, but they can be) speakers from Magnepan. I heard that those speaker are fantastic for music but do not have the dynamic of regular speaker.
Is it true?
Santa is bringing the bass!
Ok, I am in planning and purchasing mode, I've done a lot of reading here and after much learning much about IB subs here - I have the bug. I have made up my mind to do it and shore up the wall to reduce the vibrations. I will be ordering components near the end of...
This is my first post to the forums. These forums look like a great place for audio aficionados.
I'm looking for a sub (or a pair) that would best compliment my Magnepan 3.7s. I am loving the new speakers but they lack a little something in the bottom end, especially for movies...
I have 2 MG-10's and an MGCC back from '95. Though I was told they were designed with home theater in mind I have always thought they sounded better when playing music. But I used them for an informal home theater for many years. Now I have a dedicated room (20x17x9) and am ready to outfit...

I am selling my beloved Magnepan 3.6Rs - $2800 OBO. They are black with Cherry trim and include Mye stands as well as the stock feet.
I am the second owner of these speakers and they are in very good physical condition and in perfect working condition. I have the original boxes and magnetic...
Assuming cross over to sub at 80 Hz for the center & mains - what is the general thinking about:
1. the optimum spacing distance(s) of the speaker rear from the front wall (please comment for (a) sealed back, (b) ported back, (c) bipolar planar designs
2. the spacing between the transducer...

I am fully loving everything about the room and am so glad to have Maggies in my life again:). I had some MMG's a while ago and have been a believer every since.
These MC1's are even...
I made a mistake. Not a life or bank account devastating mistake, but one that makes me annoyed at myself. After you have finished snickering, I was hoping I might get some useful suggestions.
I found a pair of Magnepan MG1c on Craigs List. The price was $148.00. So I called the seller up and...
For many years, Magnepan has been regarded as one of the top makers of electrostatic speakers. Airy, vivid, and articulate, and though I`ve never owned a pair of electrostatics, there has always been something magical about their sound and presentation of the music.
However, to my knowledge, you...
