Truthfully, it sounds like your room is pretty good for constant-directivity cornerhorns.

And the three foot ear-level height is perfect, not just in your room but for all rooms. The midhorn is directly in front of seated listeners, with the tweeter horn sitting right above that. Each is designed to provide proper response and coherent summing within a +/- 20° arc above and below the forward centerline.

For the last 10 years or so, reggae has roused my interest quite a bit. I'd gotten by with a Bob Marley album for decades, but there is so much more to the genre that just that one artist. Artist's such as Jackie Mittoo, Slim Smith, Horace Andy and a host of many more. I like the real early rock steady and lover's rock styles with a gap omitting ska, (just don't move me) to the most crucial decade of the 70's when the music blossomed.

Converting CDs to mp3s is pretty simple but what did people do in the past?


Caveman 1 converted the sound that Caveman 2 made note for note. The conversion was done by ear and how we interpreted that sound.

But now, I keep pace with audio technology based on my needs. If I don't need to learn the latest gadget that just came out, I wont.

Exactly.
I do the same.

Hi, I keep up with technological developments, but do not always use them. I just like the knowledge. Cool Sometimes it gives me ideas for projects. However, about 90% of the time I design and build things with tubes. I don't shun digital and do indeed use some formats, but the latest media and gear is not to my taste. It ought to be obvious from the source components in my main system....three turntables, a reel to reel recorder, a cassette recorder, an Oppo Blue Ray, and yes a PC (I needed something to test things from time to time...it is not a music server).


Good Listening

I suggest you buy a new set of speakers. You can buy a subwoofer but that might not be compatible with the speakers you have. Spending that extra buck will give you a better sounding speaker compare to fixing your old speaker.

Can you elaborate more on how your speakers are set up? Are the speakers inside the cabinet or just on top of it? If it is inside the cabinet with clothes, then I assume that the clothes will absorb the sound and you won't get a good sound. If I were you, I will mount my speaker not on a cabinet but on the wall.
