The DT towers and bookshelves are bipolar (vs dipolar), and the rear-mounted tweeter is IN-phase with the front tweeter.Ive got some old Definitive bookshelf speakers that are dipole that I used for rear surrounds. It seems like dipoles were really big years ago but now you dont see it so much.
I've sealed my SL3XC center, and it sounds much cleaner without all the comb-filtering.I just imagined my 11a's sealed up on backside not sounding good
Again with the Monoray?!Well, they did design a sealed lineup, but do not seem to have gotten around to releasing it (yet) . MartinLogan announces breakthrough Monoray ESL line
For multichannel setups, sealed speakers are the best option.
I'm converting all of mine to monopole as soon as I have some time, or if ML actually sold the Monoray, I'd load up on seven of those.
I had a theater i that was the same way. I thought about replacing the panel on it, but I dont think they even make those like they do for the floor standing speakers. I sold it used. It still sounded good, but next to the new Focus it pales.My Motif was sicker than I thought. The new C18 is so much better!
I'm starting a new thread to follow the initial setup and thoughts about the C18 Focus Center speaker. It'll be called "My New C18 Focus Center Speaker!", and will be be posted later tonight.
The stat panel on the Motif is weak. I thought there was something up with the crossover, or woofers, but the panel measured low and cleaning wasn't the issue. I think it's just tired.
Even with a dedicated subwoofer with active crossover set at almost 180Hz, the performance just is very poor compared to the new C18. I didn't know what I was missing. So the C18 is a keeper!
