Just pondering, possibly, maybe........

Unread post by zebbo » Sat Nov 30, 2019 12:40 pm

Im just sitting here pondering about a few things, one of which is possibly down-sizing my system a bit, reducing the box count. I know my Mrs would be delighted!
I'm thinking it might be nice to go back to where I was prior to the Cubix-Pro ie; Cube 1s with A80's or preferably A100's. Anyone out there with that combination who might wish to discuss a trade deal?
Not cast in stone just pondering atm......

I have A80s and Cube 1s, along with a BMU and would not be able to get away with anything bigger. :grin: I will not be parting with them. :grin: I have lots of other boxes as well which are comparitively small and take up little space.

Be a brave move- not on the same scale but for space reasons I went from A60 & 2x A20 to one A20, took out the 12” and run 8” & tweeter in my diy cubes - really let me know how good the A20 actually is but curiosity always gets the better and I’m sure the A60 will be back in soon ✅
