I intend to try the correction you have been kind enough to share. I’m going to do so before I look at your reply to the following... When applied what do you think I’ll hear?

Not exactly sure what you'll hear. For sure it should make the response a bit more neutral while retaining the bass hump, which actually is something most people like anyway. I didn't fix the 20 kHz peak. It's only on-axis, and you probably won't notice anyway. In any case, it will be a bit less bright.. possibly too much so. The lower midrange is boosted a bit, possibly will give a bit more bass detail. Getting rid of the 1 kHz peak might clear up female voices a bit.

... but who knows... It might be total shit ;) Best to get a mic and do your own measurements.

I couldn’t help myself. Read before the correction was applied. I will get a mike though.

Currently they still sound wonderful to me. But I will experiment, and share. Thank you!

3x5" woofers is not much more than a single 8" though.. but as for everything, there's a place for thin waf-design speakers too.

Only 16% more. But the three voicecoils will absorb a lot more power than just one.

Great news is, although you are currently very satisfied, if you are running 2.0, there is still room for drastic improvement in sound quality once you have a system capable of high fidelity(bass management and subs)
