    I want to leave you guys (Eric and Karma) with a few words of my feelings toward the Double Impact speakers. Hopefully what I have to say will motivate you to stay the coarse that you are on. Because I used to own and operate an audio store I have had the opportunity to live with a lot of different speakers.This gives me a different view than most people have.
    These Double Impacts play really big and they are very transparent, but organic and natural sounding at the same time. These are attributes normally only found in speakers costing ridiculous amounts of money and even then there are no guarantees. The best thing I can say about them is that I really like them and hope that your company does well, so that more products like the Double Impacts will be available to us all.

    Thank You

    I wanted to send you a brief email to let you know I received my DIs two days ago. After taking my time unpacking and positioning my speakers I connected them using the Mogami cables you sent to my Peachtree Nova300 integrated amp. The first track I played was Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew and like everyone else I’ve read reviews from I was absolutely blown away by the sound emanating from my new speakers! Words cannot describe my excitement and elation. I am a mathematician by education and certainly not an engineer by any stretch so although I took the time to go to the US Patent Office website and read your patent I don’t understand much of what is written there but I do understand the basic concept of what you have accomplished. However, not knowing the details of the technology you have created is not a necessity in order to enjoy these Double Impact speakers. I have been a music lover for some 56 years since I was 10 years old so I have quite an extensive and eclectic library of music. Listening to my music through your newly designed speakers has made my library anew since I am hearing things that have been there all along but I never heard. I really appreciate what you have done along with the price point that allows so many people who can’t afford the price of other high end speakers. I love these Double Impacts!!

    Thank you Eric!

    Sincere Regards,

    Ray

    These speakers are amazing (ENXO XL). I purchased them based on Herb Reichert’s review in Stereophile.
    I am driving them with a Marantz HD AMP1 which exceeds any expectation I may have had.
    I could extol the virtues of these speakers ad nauseum but you already know how good they are.
    Thank you for designing and building such an incredible product.

    Sincerely,

    I can’t tell you how awesome these speakers sound (i’m sure you’ve heard them). Every day after work I have been “jamming out” and just having a blast.

    I mentioned that I had been hunting for a pair of speakers for around 7 years because I didn’t want to get a case of upgrade-itis after I heard something better. My patience has paid off!!! These have just blown me away and I have to say that the more I listen I have to say that there is nothing I heard at The RMAF that I would swap out for my Double Impacts. Even at a cost no object all the way up to the names of Tidal, Wilson, and other exotic stuff that cost more than my house and I can’t pronounce, I still want the DI’s because they make music fun!!!!!!!

    wait…… what about the all the detail of highs, lows and everything in between. If I cant tell what mouthwash the performers use than the speaker isn’t transparent. Plus, if the snare drum sounds like it’s 14 feet away in just the right 3d image…. Blah Blah Blah.

    forget that….THESE ARE FUN!!!! I can forget about all the audiophile language and just enjoy music. These speakers are perfect at telling the story the artist wants to tell.

    If you spend your time analyzing the minuscule details of music you miss the big picture. Music is a big picture experience, and your speakers get it right. Keep in mind this is with my Denon receiver. I think the big name audio companies have been selling a lot of sizzle and not a lot of substance. Keep doing what you’re doing Eric.

    You’re always welcome in Gillette WY if you are ever passing though!!!

    Got my Double Impacts up and running and so far they are incredible! Only have about 20 hours on them so far, but I am completely blown away!

    Thanks for making these incredible speakers, and for selling them at such a reasonable price point! Every day while sitting at work I can’t wait to get home to throw on a record and experience it in a whole new way!

    Tekton Electron. They are better looking in person. They sound amazing. I’m upgrading from Enzo’s which I loved. The Double Impacts were too big for my room, so Eric made these for people who want something smaller. I have not heard the Double Impacts, but I’m in heaven with the Electrons. Bass, dynamics, and all the other words audiophiles like to use. They sound like a real band is playing in front of me, and that is the best complement anyone can give to speakers. I’ve been chasing this sound all of my adult life, and I spent a fortune the last 40 years. If you use your imagination and come up with a color, Eric will make it for you. My wife says they look stunning.

    I received the Double Impacts on Tuesday and have done a lot of listening the last 5 days. First off, they arrived in perfect condition and really are impressive looking speakers. Your boxing is very clever, and although I’m 68, I had no trouble unpacking these bad boys all by myself.

    I have been listening in stereo and the DI’s have exceeded my expectations even though you told me how good they were. My current 5.1 system is no slouch with my fronts (more expensive than the DI’s), my rears are
    another well respected floor stander and my sub is highly reviewed and well acclaimed. I will not name brands as that just is not my style. This system produced some sweet music.

    Back to the Double Impacts.I have been listening in stereo only. These speakers have incredible dynamics. I had to move my listening point back 4 or 5 feet. The bass is the best I have ever heard and its not even close. It is clean, powerful and articulate. The detail of these speakers make all my music sources sound like I’m listening to them for the first time. They raised the sonic level of all my recordings. I am hearing background vocals and music I have never heard before. The differentiation of the instruments is unlike any other I have heard. It is a treat to listen to and watch on a Blu-Ray concert. The Eagles farewell tour on Blu-ray went from being very good sonically to just plain out of this world. The “best of Fourplay” is another good jazz cd that the DI’s just put right in my living room.

    I’ve sold my entire 5.1 system and will be listening to the DI’s in stereo only. I feel I have found the perfect speaker for me. I couldn’t be happier. You are a musical genius sir. I hope you market these well and get the acclaim and recognition that you and these speakers deserve.

    Thanks – Dan Z

    I just received the Cinema subwoofer about 2 weeks ago and I must say that I am tickled with its performance. I am coming from an Emotiva Ultra 12 sub which was a 12 inch sealed design powered by a 3oo watt plate amp. I was very happy with it until I got the Double Impact front and Impact center channel speakers. The bass extension of the Double Impacts seemed to go so much lower than my previous front speakers that now the extension of the Emotiva subwoofer below the Double Impacts did not seem in the sweet (flat response) spot of the sub anymore where the frequency response was flat and the volume level didn’t drop. I was at first skeptical about the Cinema because: 1.) I hadn’t heard it, 2.) I couldn’t find any professional reviews on it, and 3.) the sub just seemed like it would have to have more than a 300 watt amp to drive it to the levels Tekton was claiming. In other words I was skeptical of the efficiency claim of 100 dB / 2.83V@1m. Then I read a review on aktana.wordpress where a guy claimed to have measured in his listening room 94 dB at 11 feet away with the volume only on about 3.5 (out of 10). He also claimed to have measured the sound output as flat to less than -1 dB all the way from 20 Hz to 100 Hz. After reading this and a short conversation with Eric I thought I had to give one of these Cinemas a try.

    Well, I’m glad I did. First, it seems to have about twice the sound level output at the same volume level as my old sub. Not only does there seem to be no volume rolloff at the low frequencies but the tonal balance is far better matched to the double impacts/ impact center as well. It really sounds now like a complete system as opposed to a system plus a sub. The tight “kickdrum” bass capability does not seem diminished at all as I was afraid it would be with the Cinema’s ported design. If anything it seems enhanced due to the larger (18″) driver. I suppose this is the magic of Eric’s design which is in essence a larger, short travel driver in a tall cabinet ported on the bottom so the driver is higher off the floor closer to a sitting person’s ear level. And with what has to be a super-efficient port (or resonance chamber). I have never seen a more efficient way to design a subwoofer. I’m really surprised that this design hasn’t gotten more awards.

    I’ve been listening to the Double Impacts for about a month now and am impressed with how they sound. But before that let me quickly describe my speaker journey over the last 13 years.

    I’ve owned B&W 804 (mains), HTM3s (center) and CM5 (rear) for the past 13 years and loved the “signature” B&W sound. I’ve always wanted to upgrade to the 802’s and had been auditioning them
    for the last 6 years. However, the minor difference in the mid, lack of enough bass on the 804 and a better soundstage on the 802 would not justify the huge price difference between the two
    (I just added a sub). The 802 went from about 8K in 2003 to 22K in 2016 without any significant difference in sound aside from the materials used for the drivers and the “cool” looks.

    While looking for speakers that would not cost an arm and a leg, I auditioned the Paradigm S8, Monitor audio Platinum series, SVS Prime ultra and Martin Logan classic and finally decided
    to go with the Paradigm S8, but while looking for good deals I read a review about the GoldenEar Triton 1’s. The GE Triton 1’s were amazing, way way better than all the speakers I’d listened
    to, in terms of detail and soundstage. Only thing I disliked about them was that they are active speakers.

    So, I first bought the GE Triton 7’s for my living room and was reading up about the Triton 1’s when I stumbled upon Tekton’s testimonials, where someone described how much better the Tekton
    speakers were. After going through the Tekton thread on a certain blog, I went ahead called Eric and ordered the Double Impacts.

    Out of the box, the DI’s were insanely amazing. The first thing that it reminded me of was the Wilson Alexandria X-2 that I had a chance to listen to while auditioning for my 804. Please note that
    I listened to the wilson’s for about 15 mins, but, their sound got stuck in my head ever since. On the DI’s I could hear certain sounds on tracks that I had not heard before “clearly”. These are CD’s that
    I use to audition speakers and I’ve been listening to them for more than 15 yrs now. Thinking that it was my mind, I let the DI’s run on it’s own, went back and listened to the same tracks on the GE Triton 7’s
    and the 802 D3 (at the dealer), I was wrong, the Triton 7’s and 802’s could not reproduce them as accurately as the DI’s. After about 15 hrs on the DI’s I sat down for some serious listening, and blown away is an
    understatement on how I can describe what I was hearing. The soundstage is incredible, the high’s, mid and bass is spot on. Even at low volumes they are a pleasure to listen too and do not lose any
    detail or accuracy. At extremely high volumes (101 dB) they are clean and nice with no harshness. Listening to recorded live music is like being in front of the performance.
    Though these speakers are quite big, they disappear behind the huge wall of sound they present (as one DI owner described on a Tekton thread).

    Thank you Eric for putting the performers and performance right in front of me. These speakers will not be replaced anytime soon (unless Eric comes up with something better). Btw, I returned the GE Triton 7’s the next day I got the Double Impacts.

    Just wanted to let you know that these new Double Impact speakers are outstanding! The music comes through at any volume level, from low to high. I’ve found a new enjoyment of listening at low volumes, as I can still hear all the dynamics in the music! However, when I want to crank it up, they respond like a Ferrari! I’ll admit to being a bit nervous about purchasing such large speakers without first hearing them, but I’ve found my concerns were completely unfounded. I have owned speakers from KEF, Monitor Audio, Magnepan, GoldenEar and others. All those speakers gave me a great deal of enjoyment, but I don’t miss any of them, now that I have your Double Impacts! Thanks so much for providing these tremendous offerings at prices that mere mortals can still afford!!!
