Yes, it is. The main reason is the open baffle.
The subs are 2 DIY sealed boxes for 12" Rythmiks servo, which aren't good up to 200Hz. Plus people people talk about the bass definition provided by OB, so want to try it. Maybe my drivers aren't suited for OB and I will need to get new ones. I guess it's part of the development. I want to try the brute force approach, taking advantage of their power handling capacity, significant X-max, and the 400W amp driving them, and that I listen at 85-90dB SPL. Question of course is how they will sound.
I'm running NT2 at 70/500/1500Hz to be able to listen, as a next step. Running the 10G40 amps off the phones out from the Hilo wasn't a good idea because of the low gain available. Now I'm running the 10G40 off the line out, and the tweeters off the phones out (which isn't ideal either because this output is probably not the best quality output...tradeoffs). Let's see how it sounds.
What do you think of using NT2 for this?
