I agree with Derek, though the adjectives I'd use are "dark" and "veiled". I was never able to warm up to any of the PL-series woofers. In every case I've heard, the "classic line" equivalent (e.g. M10 for PL11, M18 for PL18) was markedly preferred over the PL woofer. The PL18's seem to have the same problems to my ears as the ScanSpeak 8545, another widely respected driver that I've never been able to stand.Derek said:
i had to hack 100hz down quite a bit to tame them down....it made them slightly more "punchy" but they just didn't quite "hit" for me....Casedot said:If you think that, try boosting around 100hz on the PL's. It cleans up the bottom end a little (actually a lot). PL's have a lot of low-end response, but above 80hz they start to slack!
Not to put ANY pressure on him..........i hope he dosent let all of us anctious people out here down.....I'm really excited about that driver, i just hope i can afford it, Hopefully going to be able to pick up a pair of CA18RNX in the next week or so, at the latest 3 weeks and give them a try then upgrade after the proto's come out. Gonna get the CA18RNX to test the water out some....(this is my first install.)Casedot said:
