Speaking of the Monitor 10

Did any of y'all ever try this to work around the midrange lobing issues imputed to the side-by-side arrangement of the 10's midwoofers?

Saw it @ AK (in a Monitor 10 thread, of course) and thought it was interesting.

    Mine are a little high to get the soundstage or lobing experience. But they sure sound GREAT up there to all that hear them.

    Is that a Darth Vader helmet paper organizer?!?

    LOL ..No.

    I think it's an OXO. carousel organizer. Good Will find as is a ton of stuff out there. Yard sale things too. If I lift something up and it has 2.99 in black sharpie ink, It's def. from one of the Good Will's here.

    You know you have it bad when you DREAM your shopping in one and you come across a HUGE selection of all kinds of speakers and then YOU SEE, the Marantz and Pioneer receivers on a shelf near the stacks of speakers!

    I hated to wake-up from that one! Seriously!

    I think I did when I made SDAs out of my 10Bs using CRS+ parts but I'm not sure. I don't fully understand lobing.
