    Yes, at first I thought that maybe 60W may not be sufficient, but then these speakers are quite sensitive, and model Elvis is MORE than enough to run the 2Ci's! :thumbsup:

    How are you liking those speakers? Pretty impressive specs on those.

    Measured from the rear of the speaker? I'm thinking they would sound better forward of the cabinet to reduce diffraction.

    Well, of course, I LOVE THEM!

    This is a design that I have been working on and refining for over two years. Finally brought them to market this summer. Positive Feedback will be posting a detailed review by our very own John Hoffman in a few weeks. Stay tuned!!!

    I did not realize the Cionnsailes were your designs.

    I think you should get more input. I happily volunteer!

    (I spent a day or so in Kinsale and like the town.)

    Good luck with them.

    Thanks! So far everyone (but one person) who has heard them likes them. I have done three demos for local retail outlets. All three started with "well, we aren't really taking on any new products now" and ended with "how long can we keep a pair?"

    The impressions so far are that they are very neutral and revealing of upstream equipment. Frequency response is "flat" which was part of the design intent. And bass response is surprising for a 6" driver. Taking orders if you are interested! The set in the pic are Lucky #13, available with or without matching stands. PM me for pricing.

    that will not really work with the current setup and room layout. I tweaked the adjustable crossovers on them, was able to make them sing that little bit better again! Today I maxed out on the amp, 60W, into the Vandee's, WOW!!...was pretty effen awesome!!!! :rockon::bowdown:

    So I wanted to freshly paint my listening room, which was a blue-tinted white. I wanted a warm, deep orange color, and went with a Behr paint called "Mandarin."

    After spending several hours taping off the ceilings and other borders, removing the doors, tearing up the room, and painting two coats, the final results were not quite what I had in mind...

    I guess I have to start all over again next weekend...

    This time, I'm gonna buy just a pint for starters and do a test patch first. :(

    Paint colors can be difficult. They can look OK on the little sample card, but then when you put in on the whole room, it can seem entirely different.

    QFT. The choice of lighting in the room has a big effect, as does any other surfaces that reflect light (ie: a white ceiling).

    I was thinking this exact same thing. Orange paint, with orange light makes for a very orange room. Might want to try something in the yellow/beige spectrum if you plan to keep the reddish light.
