    Did you try a lower crossover than 80 Hz with the 752, for kicks? If so, how did that go?

      Oh the A2.4 sounded great even full range. Just exponentially less SPL headroom.

          Oh I ran those full range 95% of my time with them. But I only had two (L + R).

          In large rooms, I had useable response well into the mid to low 30's. Not saying, you won't need a sub, but with the sealed alignment, they dig DEEP.

            Thank you for the detailed review and insights on the 752s.
            Regarding the forthcoming L3c review, I hope you will be able to dedicate a paragraph to an A2.4 and L3c comparison.
            Though one step up in size and a different price class I am certain there will be endless amount of people wanting to know how they compare given that are both MTM configurations and that Chane set a very high bar when it created the A2.4s, irrespective of price.
            I hope to be reading your review soon!

              This is going to sound a bit crass, but they don't, really. To a non-Chane owner, they might. To a current A Series owner, the differences are readily apparent.

              The L Series sounds more expensive. That's the best summation. Incrementally better in every aspect of performance.

                  Great analogy and YES.

                  It takes everything good about the A2.4 and magnifies it.

                    You should be very satisfied. Based upon my positive experiences with earlier XBL^2 drivers, I placed a bet and replaced some "higher end" JBL and lower end Klipsh with the original first-generation Arx (Chane A-series) and was blown away with the quality we got, for a total of less money than we spent on the aforementioned speakers. It was like someone took a sock off of our JBLs and we could hear clearly. We ran them side by side for a month or so to eliminate confirmation bias. My normally skeptical wife was absolutely thrilled. Friends used to go to my place to watch "The Voice" while I was out of town, to use our soundsystem.

                    We wound up giving away the JBLs. I felt bad taking money from friends for them.

                      These seem precariously perched up there, putting the height at 52". Do you think that is absolutely necessary or could you get away with something a little lower? Perhaps 20" stands?

                        They would be more than fine on either of those recommended stands.

                        As for height, that depends on your seat and ear height. You want your ear height to reside within the physical height of the primary horn mouth, well before the flat flange begins.

                        The ideal is for your ear to be at the same height as the horn throat (dead center).

                          24 inches it is

                            I know you are crazy busy but any chance you get to the L review before they go on sale?
