  2. I would get some SBK brushwood killer. Paint it all over the stems. That should do it.

  3. Hi Eddie, I didn't get the drivers myself but Paul told me at the time that Proac had a stock of drivers and they were quite reasonably priced. The 150s are very even handed, i just just fancy a change from time to time, perhaps a bit more imaging and a tad more top end sparkle. You'd be more than welcome to have a listen but you're a bit far away. Cheers BB

  4. This is interesting BB, Studio 150s are one model I always looked out for and was planning to own, I have actually come across yours here on Wam. Lots of people rate those highly and they are an elegant floorstander, I'm surprised the Mrs preferred the m5 on stands in the room. (Ive got a set of m5s also here now which sometimes get used. I like those to, but epos/proac are chalk and cheese, but both with virtues.) Interesting what you say about the 110's, and I bet trying to get drivers for your 150s must have been a nightmare also, and not cheap from proac. Monitor audio's might have been a risk I think. Personally I find it hard to live with one (or even two sets of speakers) as nothings perfect. Some things just sound better on different speakers but proacs do a pretty good job of balancing it. Still would love to hear any thoughts on any owners of the big mamas,(response 4's, D100s or whatever) if they ever spend any of their time on Wam.

  7. I'm intrigued by the suggestion of in-wall speaker mounting, and while it seems a slightly drastic solution that I'm not yet convinced I'm willing to go the distance with, I don't want to dismiss it as I could implement it much more easily than most with the partition wall I'm about to have built in my living room. It does raise numerous questions and I'm wary of clogging up the thread, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone could advise me on my two most important concerns as it'll help me decide whether it's worth serious consideration: a) Presumably the added distance to the listening positioning makes in-wall mounting more favourable than in-room positioning for long wall setups in small rooms (even if short wall is still preferred), but the closest speaker separation I could manage in my 4.5x3.3m room without breaking symmetry would be about 3m centre-to-centre, leaving under a metre from the side walls. Would that significantly negate the benefits versus an in-room nearfield short wall setup? b) Assuming front-ported or (preferably?) sealed speakers, would it do anything to help reduce the total amount of low-frequency energy that's generated for a given volume level and frequency range at the listening position? Reductions in other frequency regions are considerably less important though by no means unwelcome.

  8. Well I finally finished the Bridge over the little Pond today. I must say at the outset, it looks a lot easier when I looked at photos on line, than it took to build it. As far as garden projects go, this has probably been the most back breaking and difficult. That includes a Brick workshop, greenhouse, and previous ponds. Probably the most difficult part, was getting the Handrails, supports, and Banisters on the slopes at the correct angles. It would have been a lot easier to have just gone straight across, but I wanted to keep the original up and over shape. It is made completely of decking supplies, and probably cost about £150 plus paint. I'm in two minds whether I should paint the decking boards black, or leave the as they are.
