    OK..good info mr bubbles. But i do have to ask...are both the 1C's and the 2B's unmodified????

    At least give them the same playing field...LOL

    Now i will be the first one to tell you..1C's don't work in a 12x12 room..at all...no matter what you want to do to the room. There just too large..period..they sound like junk.



    Now you say a large room..well what is a large room and what is in it?? Now in my case..the 17X30 room, the speakers are pretty much sitting on a concrete slab basement...has a dropped ceiling with heavy acoustical tiles in it....has no furniture on the sides or in front of the speakers, and i sit 15 feet back in this room. There is a bar at the end of the room...thats about it.



    Now the 1C's will pretty much kick your butt, when i'm sitting 15 feet back in the room, if you want anything louder or more bass.....then your looking for CV's or something.



    If you put 2B's in my room..and i'm sitting 15 feet back...sorry I just don't see the 2B's being better then the 1C's....BUT..just MY opinion on that. The SDA's are very room dependent...but i will say the 1C's are about the WORST on that, even the large SRS stuff is probably better. I have had these speakers for a long time, and played them in alot of "large" rooms...but not this size. These speakers have never sounded better..the volume and sound stage is massive, and there is no speaker i tried out so far that could come close.

    I like a warmer, musical sound and am not interested in the last bit of clarity/detail, of which I feel there is plenty already, as too much clarity/detail stands out and gets in the way of the music. It's a fine line achieving that ideal balance and I'm where I want to be, perfectly content with the overall sound quality.

    Agreed 100%. I recently did two complete Monitor 10 rebuilds for customers with Clarity ESAs, and RDO-198s. They sounded outstanding, and my customers love them, however when I switched back to my 2ATLs, with Sonicaps and 198s, the top end is just smooth as can be. Granted there's no SDA effect with the 10s, but they seemed a little too "in your face" for my taste.
