OK Adrian I've incorporated the Leaks...



I disconnected the Leak tweeter and put the Usher 520's on top wired with a simple crossover cap to make them into the mid and tweeter section (wow! a three way system!), the Leaks handling the lows up to 1200Hz where their own crossover cuts.



This is my back wall in answer to Fatmangolf.


Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...

In addition to the above, both the Leaks and the Usher's are mounted upside-down: a] so the Leak bass driver isn't hidden behind my desk and b] I find the Usher's sound better upside-down.

I don't know where to start with this LOL
 
Do we all have to listen to our speakers upside down now Confused or stand on our heads for that last bit of emotion Wink
 
Good to see the Leaks back in use.
 
Was it raining today? Smile
 
How does it sound now?

I like listening to speakers, but it does take ages to get the setup right. Headphones are easy by comparison.
 
Thanks for the picture Graham, I appreciate it sounded like a weird question! I can see why you've gone for nearfield, and why that made the poor crossover parts tiresome.

Oh and listening in pitch darkness as well ..

.. on a tangential note went to the below concert by Amadou and Mariam (blind Malian couple)  which was in complete darkness and you did apreciate the sound even more even if you do lose some of the shared experience.

Various bits of GSP Kit ..well two so far, unless you count the cables that is.

Well, it's just started to get serious... L/R balance on the LF drivers is -3dB/0dB measured on my SPL meter. Last night I thought the image was over to the right.

No need for darkened rooms or standing on one's head - I'm dealing with this in the light of day (even though it could be dark outside...)
