Tekton Double Impacts

Anybody out there heard these??

I have dedicated audio room 14.5x20.5x9 ft.  Currently have Marantz Reference CD/Intergrated paired to Magnepan 1.7's with REL T-7 subs.  For the vast majority of music I love this system.  The only nit pick is that it is lacking/limited in covering say below 35 hz or so.  For the first time actually buzzed the panel with an organ sacd. Bummer.  Thought of upgrading subs to rythmicks but then I will need to high pass the 1.7's.  Really don't want to deal with that approach.

Enter the Double Impacts.  Many interesting things here.  Would certainly have a different set of strengths here.  Dynamics, claimed bottom octave coverage in one package, suspect a good match to current electronics.

I've read all the threads here so we do not need to rehash that.  Just wondering if others out there have FIRST HAND experience with these or other Tekton speakers


Just a quick update for anyone who may be interested. I ordered the Double Impacts exactly two weeks ago today in charcoal gray with the upgrade package, and they shipped yesterday and will arrive on Monday. Needless to say, I am delighted with the turnaround time.

In the next few weeks--once I get 50-100 hours or so on the DI speakers--I will be comparing them with my reference speakers, the justly celebrated Daedalus Ulysses speakers. Should be lots of fun, and I will report back with some impressions when I am able to form some.

Congrats on your purchase,that should be a interesting comparison with 2 speakers that are more similar than what I've got and have recently owned in the past 5 yrs.

The Di's only need 30 to 50 hrs on them to loosen up those fabric surrounds,and form the caps on the crossovers and they should be singing nicely.

I hope you like them and all the best too you,


@waltersalas :  Wonderful! Looking forward to your impressions. Hold on to the Daedalus...they are special.

@lancelock : Eric says that they work fine close to the front wall. Since you have absorptive room treatments, you should be set with what mofojo, mac, and kdude recommend. In my case, I found them to perform better further out...they are 43 inches off the wall, without treatment. If I could, I'd bring them out to 4 feet. At some point I will add bass traps behind the speakers, though they are working great as is, without them.

Hi Walter,

I'm happy for you! The Ulysses is indeed formidable, yes you're in store for much fun.


Thanks, guys. I think it will be an interesting contrast. I certainly agree that the Daedalus are special, and I could (and may) certainly live with them the rest of my days.

On the other hand, I am intrigued by the Double Impacts and feel that it is worth the gamble to give them a shot. Speaker preference, like most things in audio, is enormously subjective, so who knows how this might come out? One thing for sure, if the DI speakers are not as musical and enjoyable as the Ulysses, I will not be keeping them. But I am willing to take the gamble and find out.
