Space is my problem as well. Hopefully next year I'll get my shop built and make sure it's just a little bit larger so it can accommodate the two refrigerators. biggrin.gif

Don't forget protective headgear with that scooter, Steve !

 

 

 

 

Whilst we are on the subject of, er. subs, I cant imagine how I could deploy the woofer that comes with the Mini Maggies without putting my Size 12 through it !

 

 

 

Guess I'll either have to get a super deep desk or learn to sit like a cowboy. A cowboy who rides a draught horse. eek.gif

HA!

 

And all those 18's with a sensitivity of about 100dB, I can spin that prop up with a sparrow fart's worth or power. biggrin.gif

I believe it does.  If I'm not mistaken, the amp wires to the sub, speakers are wired from the sub.  It's an odd arrangement, but it works apparently.

It's just an active crossover correct? You could just run the the speakers right of an amp I imagine.

Whoa, Nelly - as much as I admire the Mini-Maggies, there are limits to a speaker system like that - I am currently leaning toward the KEF Q300 or similar for the desktop and a more exotic set of Thai speakers for the living room. I merely raised that photo because I cant see how anyone is supposed to actually sit at that desk, yet that is exactly the configuration the designer intended the system for. Those hellbent on filling a room with sound really need to read this - several times ....

Effectively, it comes down to this - are you happy to listen to 90% of your music seated at a desk or do you have a larger room and need serious bass thump ? If the answer is 'Door A' and you have 1500 USD, be my guest.  biggrin.gif

 

I also need to point out that these may not be the best speakers for those who are after eye candy on their desk. To the Magnepan faithful, I expect that is the equivalent of a hanging offence, so I'll leave the beauty question to my fellow beholders.  

 

 

 

I would add that I like the fact that these were designed to be genuine 'desktop' speakers, not standmounts masquerading as such. (<cough>KEF Q300</cough>)

You should see a doctor about that cough. tongue.gif

What do you guys think about filler? The enclosure is going to be 2.25 cu ft sealed. One lb of fill? 2 lbs?
