tower

  1. Home Audio Speakers
    Is there a reason not to use a 3 way tower as a sub? The tower has a built in sub, with dual 10" drivers. The bass response is better than most subs available today. It's a VMPS Mini Tower IIA. It would be cut off at 150 hz and above. Will it blow up?

    A defining audio moment can sear itself into one’s collective memory like the taste of a flavorful food. It can’t be shaken and the desire to experience it again can be downright maddening. I had such a moment, last fall, after entering GoldenEar Technology’s demo room at CEDIA 2015. Sandy...

    I am about to receive a pair of the Ultra towers. Having read the "Official $2,500..." speaker comparison, I am thinking that I should perhaps aim them slightly off-axis. Is this a bad idea? My system is in a poor, non-dedicated room, and my receiver has Audyssey MultEq XT32. If slightly...

    I wanted to evaluate the New (2015) Affordable Accuracy Tower2 Loudspeaker. One thing I have learned is that the human ear (mine, at least) is incredibly sensitive for relative (or comparative) measurement, but not so good at absolute measurement. Consequently, it made sense to find appropriate...

    Now that I have my Dirac Live Full w/ my XMC-1 I wanted to give some input. First of all. Review the chart to see the response. Since my X4000 is down I used a previous test however nothing has changed meaning I ran each in my room w/o treatments. Obviously the Audyssey is a base target...

    Is there anything wrong with putting tower speakers on the TV stands? my TV is actually hung on the wall, speakers are mythos one towers. Thinking about getting a 75" media console and placing the towers on top of the console. Cosmetically I think it might look ok, maybe even better than on the...

    Hello all, First of all this is my first post so bear with me. I have a Definitive Technology BP2002 that has an issue with either the crossover or amp. When the bridges are removed and speaker wire is connected to the high, middle and low posts independently, the "low" (powered sub) has no...

    So I've been looking for towers to replace my Miller & Kreisel S-1B's that I've had for a few years now. I've been heavily debating on the CBT36 system from Parts Express, mainly due to the fact I'm usually doing stuff around my house or listening room, stereo turned up. I've obsessively looked...
