    Just finished 2 of the 3 mini line arrays. These will be mainly for HT use. I know 4 drivers don't really consitute a "line array", but space is a concern and I didn't want to fork out more $$$ for more drivers (although I got these for $8.50 each when Nuera was having a sale). I also realize that there are problems with only 4 drivers (phase cancelation and what not, per Jim Griffin's white paper).

    Right now, I'm running them straight without a notch filter. I think they do need one though. The midrange is a little too forward for my taste. But other than that they sound rather nice. It would be nice to measure these, but I don't have the equipment.

    Nice speakers[​IMG] I find the 871 a little bright as well but they sound great overall. I like the Audax speakers aswell, nice baffle.

    Awesome job on the cabinetry![​IMG]
    How did you get such a fine finish?

    How do the audax sound? Do they hold their own for bass extension? Is that their surround speaker design?

    Thanks guys


    They sound OK. Yes, these are the Audax surrounds. I modified the cabinet (ported) to get better bass extension. It uses the stock Audax crossover.
