Must that noise be low-passed at 80 hz?

Good for you, Mark, starting a discussion forum. Best of luck.

I believe I put the forum address in exacty ONE location in my profile on AV123's forum, and within a day you guys find it.  I'm impressed.

I was about to send out some e-mails to let people know about it after I add some more information and detail, but you beat me to it.

Yes, the forum is very simple, but it's effective for having set it up a few days ago.  I'll spice things up as time goes on, but the really interesting stuff is what gets posted by myself and all of you.

Welcome!

Actually in my own forum there will be more talk of the *rest* of the spectrum, even though most are more aware of my deeper reaching adventures.  The Catalyst will be the first, the prototypes of which can be seen/heard in Art Sonneborn's highly impressive theater with the quad SubMersives covering the lowest octaves.

Mark, you have got to tell Art to update his site.  On it, it still lists SVS as the subwoofers.
I simply love this stuff.

Now that your site just got posted on AVS Forum... I suspect that you'll have a couple more people registering for your site.

The Catalyst's are your mains with the two 12's and the co-ax driver?

Hi Seth,

Correct, the Catalyst is what I'm calling the prototype/beta speakers in Art's system.  The speaker employs a pair of 12" sealed woofers that are highly efficient above 55-70Hz, with a 6.5" coaxial driver with a 1" dome tweeter on the pole piece.  The system is internally powered by 1000W to the pair of 12" woofers and 500W to the coax with a passive crossover to its tweeter.  The amplifier uses highly efficient ICEpower amplifiers with a large SMPS power supply.  The crossover between the 12s and the coax is handled by an internal, 24/96 DSP. 

Below are some shots with Art's screen off.  The first was from the initial upgrade to the speakers, and the second is of course after the SubMersives were added.




As I catch up on the SubMersive and the many other projects I'm working on for AV123 and others, I will make some final decisions on components used and what the actual purchase price will be.  I'm currently targeting 2500-2995 per speaker.  These won't be the only main speaker I will offer, but additional full range speakers will take a while in development.  I intend to have some matching surround channel speakers as well.

I had the opportunity to meet you at the SoCal AV123 GTG. It was interesting to see a real professional at work.

Looks like the BMF will fit great in my HT.

Best of success with your new ventures. Hope to follow along on this forum.

Hello Mark and peeps...  You had some extra time on your hands so you created this ehh?    It will be fun seeing you unrestricted.

Thank you for joining us Uncle Paul.  It was nice to meet you as well, although I don't think the BMF will fit inside the sports cars (one of Uncle Paul's other hobbies).  It should do well in your home for sure.

Nice to have you here!

Hi Buzz,

That is precisely the purpose of this space.  I have no desire to personally replicate what Mark Schifter has done so well with AV123, but there are still plenty of other market segments and applications that I feel can be served much better.  That's what I'm here to do.  Much of my passion still lies in the truly dedicated theaters and pushing the expected level of sonic experience.  My widely varied past audio experience in various ends of consumer and pro audio have certainly helped me take what I feel is a unique approach to the problems I feel need solving.

Thank you for being interested.
