    Just wondering but is there a gap between the baffles for the drivers?

    Edit:

    Nevermind, the pics show a pretty clear gap. For open baffles the distance the signal travels from the back to the front is important and the gap shortens that distance a bit. One simple mod would be to try and seal this space.

    hmm since then we've tilted the whole thing about 10-15 degrees in MTM to have the the mids at our ear level. I can't remember if it's better or worse but I didn't like the TMM because it was above my ear level ( was still better than low MTM where sound was way below our ear level). We didn't really A/B too much cause it's too much work switching cables and panels lol.

    I'd say just get the mid at your ear level and you should be good.

    Has anyone tried different crossover configurations? Active vs passive and series vs parallel. It looks like the stock crossover is a first order series crossover from the image posted.

    Also wondering how much impact moving to 12" drivers would have. I know it is all about moving air but 15" drivers are massively imposing

    I may just need to try this myself and see.

    They also sell a 10" based system with drivers from Morel. I was looking at these for space reasons. Only got a brief listen at Axpona, but hard to draw any conclusions since they were playing classical music at a pretty low volume.

    I have someone that wants to buy my Harbeth shl5plus, but I really dont know what I would get to replace them with

    the only speaker that seem very promising to me is the PAP voxativ 1.6

    anyone, by chance, have heard the shl5plus and the pap voxativ? probably a long stretch but we never know!
