    Very nice! So they are all 5.25" Speakers? If anyone compares these to Energy RC towers let me know how they do

    I say run them full range with the sub filling in the bottom, especially if 80hz is the lowest crossover you can go. My receiver, with Audyssey MultEQ set my Sierra's up as large with the sub running at the same time. I naturally changed it to small, but I use 60Hz crossover which is the lowest I can go.

    Sounds like the way to go! I will change the Parasound 2100 preamp to run them full range and for movies through the yamaha receiver, I already lowered the crossover to 60Hz and kept them set at small. I plan to take some in room measurements with REW and my RS SPL meter later today as well to make sure my Rythmik sub is still blending well with the towers.

    Ok boys,
    Some eye candy I admit my camera is just a basic canon, nothing special. The pics turned out OK.

    I had to poke a little fun at the Salk owners who always photgraph the UPS/Fedex truck pulling up



    Bought some bulk speaker wire from Ascend

    Gloves, check!

    Hey guys,
    Below are some measurements I took up to 2000Hz using my RS SPL and REW. I decided to recalibrate my Rythmik sub using my BFD. The towers are run full range with the 2100 preamp. With the Yamaha receiver I have them crossed at 60Hz. All graphs smoothed to 1/12.

    Measurement with my preamp running both L&R towers and sub


    Measurement with Yamaha receiver running both L&R towers with sub


    Previous measurement with Ascend Sierras crossed over at 80Hz through the same preamp, only difference other than the speakers is the new acoustic 4" panels behind them. Could this be why I cannot achieve as flat a response with the new Towers?


    Suggestions? I did try messing with the variable phase setting on the Sub and could not do any better.
    Thanks,
    Brandon
