    Hi Dave.

    How about naming it "Sierra mini"; so as to better suggest the possibility of using them as mains, specially in a small desktop setup.

    Keep up the good work!
    Best wishes.

    I think "Sat" works just fine, especially given the market segment these are aimed at, which includes (to some degree) the new SVS Prime Sat. If someone is searching for satellite type speakers these will come up in a search. I have a pair of small 2-way bookshelf speakers that are named Micromonitors" that are substantially larger than the intended size for these.

    This is exactly why we are going with the Curv woofers. We tested dozens of other woofers, with different materials and varying types of motors -- the SEAS Curv woofers offer incredible rigidity combined with the best self damping I have yet to measure in woofers this size. In addition, they are much lower mass which greatly improves transient accuracy and stored enery. I feel they are the perfect match to our Sierra-2 RAAL ribbon tweeter (which requires a higher crossover point), even compared to more expensive - "more exotic" woofers

    It will be a while before we have a fully functional prototype...

    I have to agree... For me, "Sierra Mini" conjures up something entirely different than what we are at least trying to accomplish. However, we certainly are not there yet so who knows

    Dave, if the new sat will be intended to act as a center as well just be sure to design the baffle symmetrically like the rest of your speakers. The only gripe I have with the SVS sat is that the baffle has chamfered sides that taper from bottom to top with a matching grill. They look sharp vertically but not so hot horizontally. Can't even remove the SVS logo to try relocating it.

    My listening area necessitates that my speakers are wall-mounted.

    Currently I have a pair of CBM 170-SEs, a pair of CMT-340 SEs and a CMT 340 center. Oddly, due to the mounting situation, the smaller CBMs are presently serving as mains, while the bigger CMTs are doing surround duty.

    The reason for that is I have found the CMT's sound to be muddy (boxy, bass-heavy and indistinct) in my front wall-mounted set-up. This is due to the CMT's depth, which does not allow enough space between the back wall. I wish my wall mounting hardware had longer arms. I have around 2 inches of space between the port hole and the front wall. I am crossing my speakers to my sub at 80hz.

    In contrast, the CBMs are not suffering from the same problem.

    My question is:
    Will the Sierra 1 or 2 pose the same problem (when wall-mounted) as the CMTs due to their identical footprint? Please advise. I am looking to upgrade.

    Or... will the Sierra Sats be the solution? Will they provide an obvious upgrade from my present set-up?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    For the Sierra-1 / Sierra-2 -- we offer this solution which works extremely well: http://forum.ascendacoustics.com/sho...on-enhancement!

    For the forthcoming Sierra Sat, the problem you are having now will definitely not be an issue

    Dave,

    I'm a little confused. I thought I remembered you mentioning in a previous thread, maybe a year ago, not to use the port plugs in the Sierra 2s, since they were designed specifically for the Sierra 1. I thought I remembered you saying to just cross them over at 80Hz, if you want to place the Sierra 2s close to the wall. I could have remembered this completely wrong but I just wanted to check with you. Thanks.
