New Loudspeakers - Part 2

After  living with my first open baffle experiment for a while, I was sufficiently pleased with the results to take the project
to the next level.   While the Aurum Cantus ribbons are very fine high frequency drivers, I wanted the entire system to consist
of drivers that fired to the front and rear (di-pole) as do the Hawthorne Audio Augie
bass drivers and the Visaton B200
main drivers.  The perfect candidate for the high frequency duties is the venerable Heil Air Motion Transformer.
While I was in speaker building mode, it seemed like a good time to double up on the Hawthorne Augie bass
drivers ..... using two on each side.  This made a huge difference in many ways.  The system is now very nicely balanced
and produces a huge sound stage which extends far beyond the front and side walls of the listening room.  Good stuff !!!
