In the process of a build myself...

A pair of MTM Setup in a Tappering T-line (tritrix)
BC25SC06-04 1" Textile Dome Tweeter
Aurasound NS6 paper conewoofers
Crown XLS1000 (Fullpass)
Processing and HU: laptop with DSP software (Equalizer APO)

Its an ongoing project as box needs stuffing and some work needs to be done on passive xovers. I happy with it thus far. The intent was not for it to be a reference system initially but I usually do some critical listening with it on and off.

I have a really good pair of front speakers for my home system, Mission 751s, so I haven't had the impetus to build my own. Every now and then I think about redesigning the x-over, then convince myself that it's not really worth it. The surround speakers are an old pair of Mordaunt Short MS3.1s with new tweeters and redesigned x-overs (they originally came with a simple 1/st order x-over that was somewhat inadequate for taming their response). Sub is a 21 Hz design I put together ages ago. Amp is a Yamaha RX-673 that sounds fine.

I actually do most of my listening these days at home on my PC, as SWMBO has monopolized the living room to look at TV and Netflix movies. Modified Logitech mm system with a DIY sub (the "Boom Unit", design covered on my website). reaches down to 32 Hz. :).

My home system are:

Faital pro drivers in an MTM setup (8" drivers top and bottom and 1" Compression Driver in the middle)

Faital 15" driver in a Tapped Horn i designed using Hornresp. it goes down to 30hz.

Drivers are driven by American Audio pro amps, crossover is behringer the model with the sub output.

My source is a PC : )

it sounds great and meets my musical needs, I really like the MTM setup compared to a TM setup. The Tapped Horn Sounds good considering it was designed by a newbie; thank god for Hornresp : )

The room in which your system is in has the great effect on sound quality and should be treated acoustically (soft floors, curtains, bookshelves with books even) and sub placed in corners where they sound the loudest, which is why more than 1 sub is always a good idea.

Thanks for the contribution thus far.... anyone have experience with open baffles and dipole subs. Trying to wrap my mind around boxless drivers.... but from the online forums people swear that they can be the most resolving speaker designs.
