    Looking at the 4 month mark, I'd try a MTM configuration by turning the top speakers over placing the woofers on top. I've got stacked Pioneer HPM 100's in the garage in that configuration and they KILL it!

    I think jeffe is thinking about this monster CV design. I often toyed with doing the same....

    You are on the right track Jeff. One of this Earth's, arguably, best speaker designers was a man by the name of John Dunlavy. He founded "Duntech" in Australia, got homesick and sold off the company and opened another State-side called Dunlavy Audio Labs... Notice anything similar? By the way he won numerous awards for his design and they are absolutely stellar with some 'audiophile' companies following the design:

    With many other high end audiophile manufacturers modifying John Dunlavy's design...

    I've heard of John Dunlavy many years ago, thanks for the history lesson and pics of some very
    beautiful speakers.

    I've seen these speakers on the Cerwin Vega Forum, I like the concept but they would have to be made with black cabinets for me.

    Nice system. Do you have any feedback issues when you turn it up, with your turntable being so close to the speakers? It looks like you can't move the speakers farther apart, or can you?

  18. You do realize that with the right tunes at the right volume you could potentially incur structural damage, right? :rockon:

    The answer to your question would be a big fat YES, I do have feedback problems when play music through the speakers close to the turntable, and I can move the speaker around they're on wheels, but I came up with a better solution, when listening to the turntable I use just the front speakers in stereo for now.
