Room Description and Treatment

Room: 16.5’ wide X 26’ long X 8’ ceiling, carpeted.
Acoustic Treatment

Room treatment is GIK acoustics and home made panels using mineral wool and Guilford of Main covering.

Tuning and Tweaks
Went with active crossover, so drivers are driven directly from amplifiers. Used digital XO and REW to determine XO points and slopes. Then replaced digital XO with Marchand analog XO. 

Was not satisfied with mid bass pedestals (drivers too close to floor), so moved drivers into seperate enclosure.

Electra Cable Tube Connectors for speaker inputs.  

All speakers have properly loaded sorbothane with 15 to 20% deflection; Gaia III for bass speakers, carpet over cement floor.

    I have heard this model of VMPS speaker before, and it is prodigious. I concur with the thought process of moving the three bass drivers in the pedestal. Good move. I find that when bass drivers are elevated - aside from subwoofers - the sound quality is more to my liking. Check out how I lofted the PureAudioProject Trio15 10" Concentric Speaker. You will see the 15" woofers at ear height. I prefer that to a lower launch. 

    It is obvious you have passion for your hobby. Kudos!
