    I am very familiar with the Marantz amp, and when I was a lot younger and arguably MORE foolish, I had the peak indicators flashing regularly.

    Regarding your 3600, I sold off my 3800 after a...

    I’m not a polymer fan, I prefer aluminum, magnesium, and beryllium... in that order. If you want to improve on the LE85, may I suggest upping the game to a 4” diaphragm?

    These suggestions are...

    The ESS drivers offer a ribbon like flat impedance curve that is pretty benign.

    I wouldn't say lifeless, but it has certainly slowed down quite a bit over the decades.

    I think there are quite a few contributing factors here.

    Wow!

    That is a hell of a system! Does each sub have its own amp channel? I hope the home has a good foundation!

    Since you will have L-pads to balance the load and adjust the output level, you can certainly interchange these drivers in all of these 43XX systems. That said, the 2405/077 will, in my opinion,...
