Well at least the reviewer got it correct in his write-up for that room.

Rich,

Your Monoliths were very good sounding at CAF, in spite of the crappy hotel environment you had to deal with.

I can imagine that hearing them set up in a proper acoustic space must be a real treat.  :thumb:

Hey Guys,  what is the purpose of the cross in the speaker baffle speaker cutouts on this mid 60s Harmony amp?  Does it act like a beam blocker or is it there for support? Just wondering.

One advantage of having a dspMusik crossover is that with speakers like The Monoliths, you can place the planar tops and servo subs in different positions in the room and use time delay to adjust for the distance offsets.

This way if you get better bass response with the subs in different positions than the planar mains, it can be compensated.
