  1. Worth watching Danny GR Research videos on youtube, has lots of info and explains concepts very well.
  2. So many options, also check out Dayton Audio - drivers seem to be excellent value and ZMA/FR measurements are posted online which makes life easier, examples: https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-RS125-4-5-Reference-Woofer-4-Ohm-295-370 https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-DSA135-8-5-Designer-Series-Aluminum-Cone-Woofer-295-526 https://www.parts-express.com/Dayton-Audio-RST28A-4-1-1-8-Reference-Series-Aluminum-Dome-Tweeter-4-Ohm-275-131 Check out Virtuixcad for design software, I've found it's pretty straight forward to use https://kimmosaunisto.
  3. Few options; https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/approx-3-fullrange/sb-acoustics-sb10pgc21-4-3-full-range/ and woofer + pr https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/approx-4-woofers/sb-acoustics-sb12pac25-4-4-aluminum-cone-woofer/ https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/passive-radiators/sb-acoustics-sb12pac-00-4-passive-radiator/
  4. Just about every speaker this guy makes if fugly, nothing to do with acoustics its just I'll bolt something together and hope for the best. https://oswaldsmillaudio.com/mini https://oswaldsmillaudio.com/ironic
  5. Probably better off buying some passive JBLs from ebay / gumtree rather than spending money on crossovers.
  6. Answer 1. there wouldnt be just one chip for dolby digital it would be built into a larger processor, no it would not be worth repairing / replacing as it is manufactured on to the main circuit board. Answer 2. no, there is no difference between 5, 7, 8 9 or 2 channels - it is just another track. When it is mixed by an engineer, they identify which track is which in a mix. The speakers tweeter could be damaged from turning the volume up too high but as it doesnt sound muffled on stereo then this is unlikely. Keep in mind, in dolby digital and most surround formats up to 9
  7. Usually not a chrome fan, but something about this design seems right: (AGD Production - no its not a tube) https://agdproduction.com/audion/
  8. If interested, here is quite a good rant/talk on speaker sensitivity;
  9. My take, Apollo CD - neutral Rotel - (from my experience), full bass, ok mid, slight hard treble B&W - bright, treble lifted Amp - class D, neutral / lean LP vinyl - warm It's possible, playing CDs has a more forward / brighter sound compared with LP, this will be more noticeable at volume and when recordings have a lot of instruments and volume The difference between an OK DAC and an excellent one is how they manage to keep details clean and separated when playing something like a symphony orchestra. Options: replace speakers with so
  10. I would vote the Whatmough over the KEF. As to solving the issue of sounding congested - what is the source?
  11. Have you tried contacting Madisound? they sell Audax. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/index.php?p=catalog&mode=search&search_in=all&x=0&y=0&search_str=audax
