Hi from Italy, guys...
After two years with a couple of Pi2, now I spent some years with a couple of Pi 3 and couldn't be happier.
Here's the question: I've put them on two low stands, so the tweeter sits below ear level... I've seen some photos of the Lone Star meeting in which Wayne puts the speakers on taller stands tilted upwards...
Are they tall enough to put the horn to ear level of a sitting person?
If so, if it is better like that, I'll do the same...
Thank you! And thank you again, Wayne, for these amazing speakers!

If it can help someone, some images of Pi 3 construction:

Incredible looking speakers! I love 'em!

I've run my speakers on low stands, just like yours. I like the way they sound that way, but I do think there's an improvement in sound raising them to ear level and employing flanking subs. So that might be one of your next projects.

You might also swap your H290 horns with our H290C waveguides. The radial horns you have sound very good, I could live with them forever. They're smooth and the pattern is quite good for a radial horn. But the H290C is even smoother and the beamwidth is more consistent, so it's a worthwhile upgrade. It's easy to do too 'cause it's a bolt-in upgrade. You will not need to modify your cabinet.

Thank you so much, Wayne!
I will build new stands then!
I already have two tapped horn flanking subs but I was thinking to build two of your 3Pi subs to flatten the low section of response...
Yes, I definitely should change the horns! I think I'll order two and swap them when I will have to move the monsters from a stand to another! Very Happy
Thank you again, Wayne!!!
