The Kalmar trip 
Saturday, August 28, 2010, 17:05
The test of this partly new system would take place on the east coast of Sweden, in the city of Kalmar, the place where i was born and raised.

So we packed up the system and put it into Marias new old car, a -95 Volvo 850 turbo (nice choice considering the fuel economy:), but it is rather quick and there was no problem fitting it all in.

If anyone out there is curious about what the Swedish inland looks like, this is a good example, lots of small lakes and pine forests.

This particular place is called Strömbergshyttan, a nice rest stop roughly half way between Gothenburg and Kalmar.

Well we made it safe and sound (!), and the system was set up in the backyard of my fathers (our old) house, thankfully our neighbors are very patient and nice people.

The system needed some processor tweaking, mainly gain and xo points, and some ever so slightly applied delays, but that's what a processor is for.

The end result was very impressive, even if the system is very compact the voices are full and rich, the low end is very detailed and has a very nice impact.

The B&C DE250 driver on the ME45 horn crossed over at 3,8kHz added a nice, clean and crisp upper end, the B&C 10MD26 equipped mid horns made the system sound "in your face" and the dynamics and sound quality is just wonderful, voices, guitars and synth-pad sounds all sounded astonishing and as if coming from a much bigger system.

The 15TBX100 tapped horns crossed over at 250Hz added a nice punch impressive depth with a lot of impact and detail, i heard things I have never noticed before, and at the distance the picture was taken you could even feel it in you chest.

All in all, the system sounds much bigger then it is, and it has enough capacity for outdoor live events of moderate size, but most of all it was the sound quality that got my attention.
