What I found with the original design was the low bass having the drivers 5.5" off the floor the soundstage seemed like it was compresssed in the vertical. With the ribbons being used from 270Hz up and the detail, speed, and harmonics ribbons provide, rather than living with the design limitation of a compressed vertical soundstage (not bad, but noticeable to me), I decided to experiment with taking the existing drivers and putting into another enclosure. Some folks have lifted up the entire speaker on pedestals. If it didn't work out, I could always go back. It was immediate that I was on to something so I modifiied the enclosures. Really pleased with the result. This is a discussion I put on the VMPS Audio Circle site concerning the project.
