    How are they for bass with 2 10 inch woofers or there or near 10 inch

    would a 50 watt tube amp run them at a less than very loud setting
    There is more to the story with regards to how much amplifier power is required for a given speaker than the sensitivity specification. The nominal impedance, the minimum impedance, and phase angles to name a few. You can have a high sensitivity speaker and still have a difficult load to drive that’s going to require more power than what you would think if you only consider the sensitivity rating.

    those big excursions waste amplifier power and cause speaker distortion in the normal band. Best to filter it out at the preamp stage with a high pass ( Sub Sonic) filter

    no excessive excursion, my Joseph Audio Perspectives on the other hand have some serious excursion, on Ball Tongue by Korn they move inches.

    I was going to say the speaker enclosurers look like lava lamps, and then I see you have a lava lamp there in the photo...

It was during Uncle Tupelo's cover of Sin City by Gram Parsons(FBB) on Sundazed that I saw(heard) what these speakers could do. It was enlightning, a whole new type of listening experience, analytical detail yet plump with emotion and forcing you to sing along. Only fear now is I'm gonna worsen my Tinitis as I just want to crank the hell out of them constantly. Dumfounded and smiling in CT.

    These are incredibly revealing speakers, I would swap some cable etc, to find the tonal balance you prefer. I seriously doubt the speakers are the issue, these are breathtakingly accurate and dynamic with no harshness, extremely transparent to the source. They recommend a lot of toe in for set up, so if you have too much treble energy I suspect look beyond the vivids.

    If highs are too much, install an attenuator resistor on the tweeter. Most crossovers already have attenuator resistor, so you would just increase the value fo less highs. Ask the manufacturer about the mod.

    Vivid owners, if I can ask - my G2 S2s have ~200 hours on them and to my ears are tipped up in the highs. The only way to really ensure they are balanced across mids - high is to raise them up on a platform 3+ inches, tilt them back and ensure little to no toe - in. Has anyone else experienced significant high end energy without raising, tilting and toe - in? mind you, they still sound beautiful but these efforts seem a bit extreme. Thanks in advance for your input.

    Just purchased Giya G2 Series 2s and currently breaking them in. Great speakers IMO.

    Vivids are amazing, I recently heard the G1s at the Dallas dealer and they were exceptional. Realistic, effortless and dynamic..

    Big, big jump! My buddy has the Winds. To be fair, the Winds are how old? Gotta be more than five years.
Working...
