    The active devices and passive devices work together in unison. For example, if you move the one passive unit at the front of the room lower, the voice of the singer moves lower. Move it higher, and the voice moves higher. We placed it at a heigh which would have you believe the singer was standing at the front of the room. Nothing is fixed and itís easy to move to hear the affect.

    That is an endorsement, and one of your longest posts

    What effect did you notice from the addition of the active devices?

    Re: Holger Stein visits Suncoast Audio

    Are these devices similar to the sprayers that break the surface tension of water, so divers can enter the pool with less friction?

    Can this type of system be added in stages, meaning get a starter that helps improving your system; add another component of two as budget allows, that improves; and so on building towards the eventual entire system?

    If it can be accomplished in stages, what would be the starter pieces and at what price range? My thought is that not every room/system would use all the same components. Again I might be completely wrong on this one .

    Absolutely. I would start with the active H2. Two of these at the front of the room.

    Totally different. The aperture is more like a standard diffuser.

    How much would two of these cost? From my understanding these are wireless meaning that nothing connects to them, battery powered. They are just on in the room, correct?
