13 years, huh? what kind of installer of 13 years would put 5000HZ bass blockers on front stage speakers? what kind of intaller of 13 years would send more power to the rear speakers "because they are bigger, and therefore MUST handle more power"?

surely, a man who has been installing audio for 13 years would know that frequencies below 250-200Hz are non-directional, so the sub wouldnt have to "be on your lap." hell, even someone installing for 3 years would know that 3-way and 4-way speakers are a marketing gimmick.

The goal of any audio reproducing equipment is to create the recording as if you were watching it live. A good setup with localize instruments in proper locations. An example of this is how vocals and some lead instruments are always dead center. Things like rythim guitar and other backround noises are supposed to feel more around you, and are spread out wider.

Setting up the front soundstage is what sets apart nice stuff you bought, from a killer setup. Using the front speakers full range, and a matching midbass as a rear speaker will give you a solid soundstage, but still fill in behind you midrange sounds such as the rhythm guitar, and stuff. You'll be surrounded by a majority of the instruments, but the vocals and highly localized high notes like cymbals will be infront of you.

Bass is omnidirectional, but 80-250hz can be localized, or cause things that can be locallized. Keeping strong bass up front, below 100hz is key to bringing the very low notes up front.

He'* right, Bigger doesn't equal more powerhandling and volume. Sensitivity does.

when looking to buy speakers of any kind, sensitivity should not even be glanced at. power handling is dependent on the motor structure design and how well it can cool itself.
