No point doing dsp unless totally active, agreed. I have four amps already, though bridged I can easily add another set of speaker posts and unbridge them, then just add a dsp plate amp for the bass.

I'd always treat the room first, before fannying round with dsp, which would be only for the xo. Room issues are ime best treated physically
Yep...if you have 4 amps knocking about then it makes sense to do that. I always prefer room treatment as it doesn't screw up imaging as much as DSP when used broadband. Some people are tempted to deaden the room a little too much. I always just advise treating early reflection points and using something like a diffuser on the rear wall. To do very much with bass needs far more ceiling to floor in corners than most would put up with for domestic bliss. That's where DSP comes in especially useful imho.

Looking good :). My own stands also have the vertical posts filled with lead shot.

Thanks very much for getting these done so quickly Jamie, they look great. Just seen the tracking info so should perhaps see them tomorrow. Away this week until Thursday so will have to wait until the weekend to get them set up.

Finally had time to clean Lpads and set as instructed. They were filthy! No more dead spots from oxidation. I have to admit after a few days of listening (to tracks I have heard hundreds of times) the sound is more coherent and very slightly better balanced. The most notable improvement was in the LF where the sound was sharper (more immediate) and brought balance to the Mid/HFs. I prefer a little more forward mid range as I like vocal performances. So I tweaked the DSP up two dBs across the board. After more careful listening I think those Lpad setting are probably a better starting point from which to experiment. Like I said the improved LF characteristics are a benefit.
I also ordered the resistors. They are supposed to be delivered Apr 1st. April Fools on me...… We shall see.

I’m snowed under with work at the minute but will do the L-pad cover plates as soon as I get a chance. Do you want the Yamaha logo etched on them or anything?

I think not Mark. I already have your wonderful badges. Are they black Lucite or wood? Can't remember. I can always paint them. Someday I hope to fill in the speaker cover holes and the blanking plate edges and refinish front faces. So wooden plates would be better? You decide. I happen to have extra gaskets for plates. Absolutely no hurry. Cheers!
