By that I mean you can choose the slope and the crossover point and sometimes the Q but they do not take into account the 'Sound Power' or total radiated energy of the speaker.

The BAX-1 on the other hand is designed with a specific speaker in mind. The Model T has different software then the Middle T and the Mini T has different software again. The reason for that is we put each of the Model T's in our anechoic chamber and we make over 300 measurements but vertically and horizontally around the speaker and adjust the software to provide as accurate as possible the best Sound Power for the specific Model T speaker.

One of the reasons PMC may not want to go with the BAX-1 is because just having generic crossover points and slopes based on their passive crossover may not be sophisticated enough given the quality of their speakers.

Hope this helps explain it a bit.

Thanks for the prompt response. I now realize the all the work involved to set parameters for different loudspeakers!

MEMO: To All Bryston Customers
SUBJECT: Bryston Middle T Active – Customer Feedback

March 2018

Hi James

Model T Active vs Middle T Active

So far my initial impression with the new Middle T Actives is a very similar clean, neutral and refined presentation!

The Middle T speakers are brand new...and I must crank up the volume a bit more to get a similar same scale of the Signatures...but I am sure they will run in slowly in the next weeks...

The highs seem to have more sparkle and resolution, and I am very happy that the bass is still very impressive and fast.

You remember I was a bit scared because the Signatures spoils us with such a magnificent bass punch... maybe someday we add a middle “sub” to get the ultimate bass weight.

I just played “Mean to Me” from Rita Coolildge...one of my personal reference tracks...and the double bass is well defined, fast, and airy, just like on the Signatures.

Overall, a speaker with fantastic value...and definitely “signature” sound quality...plus, great for the wife factor, due to the compact dimensions!

Cheers to you !
Tom from Singapore

Hi

I know Gary had the Active Middle T's at the last show but I think this time he is going to show the new Mini T Active.

DEALER FEEDBACK

James,

The four Mini T ACTIVE speakers are installed. Along with single Mini T sub.

Running with Bryston 4B on woofers and 3Bs on mid-range and tweeters.

Client is ecstatic. I will be sending pictures hopefully next week when I revisit the job site to tie up Loose Ends.

Thanks,

Dave
