Baffle Babble

So Martin King knows his math - I've installed the recommended baffle step correction for the LP#9's and think it does work - although there's a cost. Think of a baffle step correction as a treble cut - not a bass boost. And cut it does - the LP#9's now sound like every other pair of COTS speakers - spot on - but it's not for me. I've grown accustomed to the sound of the air in the LP#9's without the filter and when I put it in - it kills the presentation - the ambiance - the feeling you are in a venue.

So - I think the verdict is - keep the filter and if I'm listening to rock and roll - leave it in - and if I'm listening to Jazz - out it comes.

So - So - So - SO - SOOO tired of fiddling with the Baffle Step Correction (BSC).
