I was able to stop by mkanters' place last night after work to help him work though a few issues with his system. It turns out that one of the cross-over setting for the woofer's was boosted to high which resulted in the woofers distorting at very high SPL at extremely low frequencies.

After choosing one of the other lower settings and cutting the input gain 2dB, we cranked some bass heavy music and solved the distortion issues. We both agreed that the bass was still hot, so mkanter will adjust this setting at a later date.

After a few beers and some pizza, we cranked some more tunes. At one point, I could have sworn the sub's were on, however they were not!! Those Rocketman Speakers dig DEEP!!! The imaging and dispersion is also amazing. mkanters' room is untreated and I was surprised how clear the sound was. He did pick up some knock off OC703 and will be applying some absorption to the front wall behind the speakers.

This is a great and sometime frustrating hobby, however I was glad to be able to help mkanter out!!! I will let him speak, however I think he is extremely happy as he has made the next step to really high end speakers.

I know I'm pretty late to this thread, but welcome to the forums @mkanter !

I have heard Flint's previous system, which I believe was the basis for your Rocketman speakers, so I know how good they sound :)

Yea sometimes this is both a great and frustrating hobby, but sounds like you all had fun and are getting everything dialed in!

I'm glad this issue was resolved. As I mentioned to mkanter the problem had to be in the x over. These speakers sound amazing at the price point and well beyond.
