Re: Request for plans
If you have the right corners, then constant directivity cornerhorns are definitely the way to go. But if you don't, then matched-directivity two-way speakers may be used with flanking subs to good effect. To learn more about each of these things, see ...

Re: High-pass on the 4pi?
I prefer second-order for flanking subs, low-passed between 80Hz and 120Hz. This assumes the subs will be within a few feet from the mains, as described in the Speaker placement and wavefront launch and room modes, multisubs and flanking subs threads. ...

Re: Surround Sound With TV Over Fireplace
Don't put the mains on top of flanking subs because that defeats the purpose. They need to be a few feet behind, below and beside the mains. Each flanking subs needs to be between the main speaker it's flanking and the nearest boundaries, in all three ...

Re: Another Sub woofer Q&A
Honestly, as long as the subwoofers you use are of good quality, it doesn't matter as much what brands and models you use. What matters more is their positions and low-pass slopes. The main thing is you shouldn't expect any single subwoofer to integrat...

Re: Subwoofer Crossover
The MiniDSP would work nicely, because you can use it to set whatever low-pass frequency and slope you want. I'd probably lean towards that since it gives you such flexibility. Sub crossovers are easier to dial-in than the crossovers inside the mains. ...

Re: 4pi plans and questions
You've got mail! Four π speakers are perfectly suited for soffit mounting, in wall, baffle flush. See the following thread: four π loudspeakers at NJCU sound labAs for the surround speakers, I really like using one π or two π speakers as surrounds. ...

Re: 3 or 4pi for HT LCR and flat-packs?
I'll send plans but first decide which model you prefer. There are some threads here that discuss the differences, so look through them, decide which model you want, and let me know. I'll send plans right out. 3π / 4π search resultsWe do not make flat...

Consider constant directivity cornerhorns
I would actually suggest six π cornerhorns, since you are planning to put the mains in corners. A constant directivity cornerhorn is designed to be placed there, and maximizes the benefit of that configuration: Speaker placement and wavefront launchYou...

Re: PA system using Three Pi as Mains and Three Pi Sub(s)
Definitely don't run a single sub in that space. You've gone to the trouble to build the room right but you'll throw all that out the window if you just use one sub. There's no way to make that room right in the modal region with just one sub. So defi...

Re: how'd we get here (or where is this)?
Altec made excellent speakers in that era. Not too bad by today's standards either. But they definitely don't compare with a properly designed modern matched-directivity two-way (waveguide) loudspeaker, even though they look similar. The following d...
