I've been exploring the idea of trying to recreate the full, detailed sound of Magnepan speakers without sacrificing the loud volumes, bass, and dynamics I'm accustomed to. Would it be unrealistic to think I could build a speaker that would have similar charactoristics to a Magnepan speaker if I used a vertical array of mid-woofers and small planar tweeters? Some mid woofers have excellent transient response and detail, yet still have dynamics and bass extention. Scan Speaks 7" Kevlar woofers come to mind; I own Avance speakers with these and think they are excellent. Still, I enjoy the incredible presense of Megnepan speakers, and was wondering if it was possible to recreate this without sacrificing the house-shaking party type volume I sometimes crave. Also, being a college student, the Magnepans look too fragile ------------------ -Stretch "I want good sound for cheap."
