    What makes speakers "disappear " and can it be measured?

    I'd say that's the carpet in front of the speakers that make the difference. I also have carpets between my speakers and listening place. Wherever you are in the room you can't hear anything coming from any speaker. I have been in many places where friends and relatives have stereo setups. No...

    Good amplifier topology for difficult speakers?

    Midrange dome drivers banned ?

    OK, this is also the conclusion I came to. I'm myself a vintage guy, with still good ears (16kHz heard) and was never satisfied with cone midrange, too much directivity. Of course my living room is big enough, with lots of furniture, carpets, curtains etc .... Thus the big problems to have a...

    Midrange dome drivers banned ?

    Hi! How come that you can't find 3 way speakers with dome drivers anymore these days? I own a good pair of vintage (coffin type) speakers - with 8" bass drivers, in a 35m2 living room.
