Just thought I'd share that these horns sound like absolute **** with no EQing....

Kill me now.... I have a **** TON of fine tuning coming my way...

Per tonight's rule:

Yup...horns are like that...even the Forte's need a bit of EQ'ing to tune out the room nastiness :(

But when you get everything right;

as said it's more than worth it after the eq'ing is done right.

I raised the x-over point to 3.2k and brought the mids up and they're bearable now... makes me appreciate the sound of the XT25's right out of the box now...lol

I did just "throw" them in, no re-set gains... they're getting 1/2 the power due to the ohm load and I STILL had to drop them 8-12db @ the headunit...

These things are ridiculous... I can't wait to get the DQT... I'll probably get an external crossover later that can allow me to drop them below 1k... just for shits and giggles... I didn't pay $400 for nothing :D

While they sound utterly disgusting, it's nice to notice that they are playing nice and clean at ALL volume levels... they don't sound stressed at all.

Ear *** you say? we shall see.

I don't know about that... but I'm starting to think my next purchase will be something that will allow me to drop the highs past 1k.

The 9835 does not allow for that.... and I wanna do it anyway... for shits and giggles and such.

***** to be you, meng.

My CH1's sounded pretty good uneq'ed :p:

Ahh...the memories that we shared together. Jamming together to the newest releases. Relaxing together with some slower paced sound quality music. Late nights of just hanging out together, releasing our emotions. Running through the rolling meadows in the countryside, joyfully embrassing each other and sharing a long-overdue laugh. APC has never sounded the same since :crying:

It MIGHT be because I'm a tuning n00b... hopefully by the end of this ordeal I'll actually be able to halfway tune by ear. 5 bands is abould all I can handle right now, and it takes me forever to isolate the frequencies that bug me.

I still wish I had the money to buy those when you sold them.
