Trey, have you heard the lsim 705?
Curious how a modded 15 would stack up with a 705.

Thank you sir!
The LSiM705 is a baddd mother...
Having heard the LSi9 modified in person I would say a LSi15 modified would hold its own against the LSiM705.
Now if you were modify the LSiM705... game over I am afraid. Those speakers modified would be a force to reckon with for sure.
Noobie here. I just picked up a nice pair of Lsi15s. I want to do both the DB840 woofer mod (drivers and mortite on order!) and possibly the crossover mod if feasible. I'm wondering:
- were you / the customer ultimately happy with the improvement in sound from this upgrade?
- do you offer assembled crossover upgrades for owners to install in their Lsi15 cabinets? I picked up my speakers locally and can't imagine packing them up and shipping somewhere both ways (for both cost and TLC reasons :) ). Have you done more of this mod since your last post?
Funny, my speakers have mismatched finish - one is ebony the other cherry. My brother is a carpenter and does fine cabinetry so I'm enlisting his help to replace the wood panels on both speakers so they will match. Any advice on that mod, as far as avoiding altering sonic qualities by using different kinds of wood, or on mounting materials and methods?
Please give me a shout at Vr3Mods@GMail.com :)
To my knowledge all of the LSi15 modifications I have performed have ended with happy ears! :) You will just have to ship the crossovers, not the whole speaker... :)
Will talk more in email!
I like! Since I just acquired a pair of LSi15, I have my sights on XO upgrade.
