TJL3W built by Lance/UK
I'm sure you get lots of emails -but i hope you have time
in your busy world for little old me!
My name is Lance, I am (only) 23. and possibly to your
surprise have already built a pair of your lovely tjl3w
speakers. I consider these a life keeper and probably my
most cherished posession.
The sound is (in my opinion) an eye opener. For me
it's this simple - the sound available from my setup is,
and will only ever be limited by the electronics
connected to these speakers. How could i ever ask any
I'm sorry i havent contacted you before, and feel bad
writing this as i have done little in return for what you
have given me. I've yet to put a finish on them - I keep
changing my mind on what they should be! At the moment
I'm thinking black silk velvet no less! This brings me on
to my next project; I wish to build a complete 5 speaker
system for surround sound (these lossless audio formats
on blue rays are getting good you know!)
So the first question is do you think that the seas
W15CY001 and Hiquphon super mini monitor would work as a
center speaker? And the same again for surround - though
i feel the center is more important. I have looked into
the human voice range (as this is the main purpose of the
center channel) and it seamed ok.
I felt the incredible nature of the TJL3W to produce
natural voice would be a perfect start - as i find most
if not all surround systems seam to fall flat when it
comes to this channel. -sounding boxy.
If not-is there a path you could recommend looking into
for this purpose-ie maby a MTM setup-(you would know much
more than me about the feasability of this) by the way -
feel free to post any message i send.
All the best and warmest regards,
I thought i would get the pics to you as is, and when i
finsh them i will send those as well. If you are energy
conscious you wont want to look at the last pic- 2.5kva
The sound is wonderful, but i feel i need more
dynamics-more get up and go! thats why i purchased the
parasound amp.-to be honest i dont feel that this has
solved the problem to the level i had hoped. The problem
is im not entirely sure what has caused this, there are
many different opinions on the net about this- it it the
efficiancy of the drivers? 85db. i have read that the
efficiancy is not something that can be overcome with
more power-but as i have said, there are many opinions on
Is it possible to increase the excitement factor of the
speaker while maintaining the fantastic
transparancy(adding drivers??), or would you suggest
i look at another project?
I must admit the dtqwt is interesting!- but is it as
sweet as the excel drivers? I listen to everything but i
realy love rock music and large scale classical. i like a
snappy rhythmic sound-but natural.-ive got a pair of vifa
xt25tg's from another project spair- i quite like them. Due
to this -the surround setup is obviously on hold-for now.
Hope your keeping well,
