According to our marketing manager, the system below at our Pittsburgh dealer is the best-sounding Mini Maggie System he has heard. There is a pattern we have observed with all the best sounding Mini Maggie Systems. It is similar for all dipoles to get optimum sound--- More than 10 milli-seconds for the first reflections. Bass reinforcement from the boundary provided by the short "modesty" panel that allows the Bass Panel to operate in free space. And a good amplifier (see FAQ).
We want happy customers because referrals and word-of-mouth are our best form of advertising. We are confident if you hear the Mini Maggie System under the right conditions, you'll be impressed.
Setup instructions for optimum sound---
--All speakers sound best when they have plenty of room to "breathe". (Notice show reports how manufacturers place their speakers in the hotel rooms far from room boundaries.) The optimum amount of space is 10 milliseconds for the first reflection. Strive to get as close to the ideal as your room will allow. Because the Mini Maggie is a desk system does not negate the laws of physics.
--Bass Panel operating in dipole manner with baffling as shown above.
--Tweeters on the outside with 1 ohm resistors for attenuation due to near-field listening.
--For better high frequency dispersion, tilt Mini back with rubber bumpers under speaker base.
--Use Class AB amplifier (We have been disappointed in the little, inexpensive Class D amplifiers.)
No, it is not practical for some installations, but the Mini Maggie System is much like our 20.7---pushing the boundaries of music reproduction.
Small room monitor speaker
We are frequently asked if the Mini Maggie System can be used in lieu of one of our larger models. Yes, but we err on the side of caution. There is a good reason why line-source drivers are big. We suggest that you view the Mini Maggie System as a solution to a installation dilemma---especially well-suited for near-field listening in a VERY small room on speaker stands when used with two DWM Bass Panels. But, we don't want unhappy customers if it turns out that your particular installation or room acoustics are not compatible with a Mini Maggie System. "Buyer's remorse" is bad for business.
The link below has superb instructions for those that are considering using the Mini Maggie System as a woofer/satellite system in a small room. We couldn't have done better if we had written it ourselves. So, consider it as our set-up manual.
