NAHEE!! Dont apologise, i'm only kidding man. But even you know that your ravings can be understood completely only by enthusiasts (serious ones too) not laymen.

hey my wife and sister do. in fact untill my sister got married i used her ears to test small changes to my XOs (really small changes in the midrange can be detected). These changes included changes to the Baffle Step Compensation of the midwoofer (baffle dependant) etc... Vivek can elaborate on this.

But then we agonise over the differences of a 300B SE over a EL84 PP.

NAHEE!!! Not the baffle step compensation bit again. Navin probably remembers the time when I wanted to build a 2.5way speaker. I read and read and read and researched about BSC (and drove many up the wall with my questions). I also remember Navin suggesting one midbass driver on the rear baffle. Finally, Shiva of Corrson had come up with a good sounding Vifa MTM speaker. I liked what I saw. I then went for an MTM.

For the benefit of some of the members here, I would like to say something about BSC. It is to compensate for frequencies when the width of the baffle plays a part in the response. At lower frequencies, the radiation is more spherical than higher frequencies, which are more directional. That is why the extra woofer in the 2.5 way speaker. Right, Navin?

the reason i prefer 2.5 way over MTM is to do with the radiation pattern of the speaker....this is a serious digression from car audio...if anyone wants me to do this in public please let me know. In short I do not believe (after long listening tests) that the cylindircal wavefront of the MTM is in any way beneficial to the stereo image. I think saying more at this stage will merge this thread to www.diyaudio.com.

I think the guys here need to do some reading on diyaudio.com. They will benefit greatly from some reading.

no need vivek. that is what we are doing. distilling information from diyaudio into this thread. that forum would drown most in info overload.
