Title: Magnepan owner in Singapore
Post by: joamonte on January 05, 2019, 22:04
My new 3.7i should arrive next week , I know there are a few members in XP using Maggie or panel speaker , care to share your experience ;D

Congrats. The Maggie were my first panel panels and to date, I have always a soft spot of them. If you switched from a box speaker to this, you may need to get use to the bass. Bass is very tight but may tend to be a lower in quantity and the trick is to vary its distance from the back wall. Toe in to taste to get your sweet spot. I think augmenting the bass with a sub or dual subs would yield dividends. Room treatment would differ from conventional box speakers.
You may also consider doing away with side walls treatment as they make negligible impact.

Congrats. Looking forward to some pictures. I had 3.6R way back. Nice transparency. But difficult to get the bass out.

Oh, very important do not allow strong wind or stupid friends or blow on on true ribbon tweeters. :-X

still sticking with magnepan.

recently gotten a pair of MMG-W and MMG-C. Trying out the tri-center concept.

U gotten the 3.7i from absolute? I thought they stopped carrying the brand?

last year, the tweeter on my MG1.5 died. Called them up, they dont do repair for broken QR tweeters.

I've owned the Maggies too and I love the unboxy sound. Perfect match for high powered Naim. What I like is that the speakers are easy to shift and you can play with the positioning without breaking your back. Remember to change the biwiring stock jumper plate to copper cable.

Peeve? Our humidity (you definitely need aircon) makes maintenance of this speaker  a  challenge. 300b tube lover can forget it

Don’t know how maggies are today, It requires lots of juice for it to wake up & it’s got a tight sweet spot not to mention room sensitive especially smaller listening rooms. It needs space to breath. Oh for me asthetics are important too, don’t like the looks of 2 big partition like objects to look at. lol

I own the MG1.4 and Apogee planer many year ago, I give out because I feel it don’t have enough bass punch for the pop music at that time , but I seldom listen pop music nowadays , so I started to miss the soundstage and lifelike presentation of planer speaker....before purchase the 3.7i I went to the dealer showrooms to have a feel of the bass , yes agree the bass is not as emphasised as box speaker , but the 3.7i do give enough bass for most music, in fact I feel the bass is much nature than box design...

I used the 1.7 last time and has since sold it. Nearly bought the 3.7 but it was too imposing in my living room.. You need a high current powerful solid state amp to drive.

If you have a large room, the panels double up as a accoutic panel for your box speakers

The Jeff Rowland 501 claim to have 45A output max, hope it drive well.

Actually I am more excited about how it would sound with the Cary 211 mono block , push pull 300B driving 845 tube , 50watt class A/ 200 watt class B , the ribbon should sound nice with triode power tube

i own the 1.7 since about 2011 and i love them for the soundstage, detail and true to life imaging, especially for classical music.  No issues with humidity because i keep them in air conditioned room and also use a dehumidifier regularly.

I would agree that they are not so suitable for Pop / Rock music. Because they don't give you the overemphasised bass, and also because in Pop/rock concerts you are not listening "live" but through dynamic box speakers, so they will sound different.

I am thinking of upgrading to the 3.7i. are they much bigger or better than the 1.7? Is there a trade-in option? Care to share who is the dealer in SG or do you have to import from US, as I heard the dealer in Adelphi no longer carries.

You can talk to siva from absolute sound he use to have a pair of 3.5 driven with VTL 225 or 300 but don't ask him about how many tweeter he headbang to hell.  ;D ;D ;D

the ribbon tweeter in the 3 series makes a great difference from the QR in the in 1 series.

and also you get more of the bass, provided you drive it with beefy amps.

TAS appointed a dealer to sell the Maggie , although TAS is still the distributer that arrange the order and transportation.

Maggie price in SG is expensive , I ask before , it is about $600 more than Hong Kong , and TAS service is really quite lousy IMO , my speaker already reach shop this morning but they have to wait till Friday than can deliver...maybe if I buy FM they will able to deliver when ever I want , perhap Maggie is too cheap for them to  put in effort , LOL ;D

I heard the 1.7(non I) compare the 3.7 (non I) in dealer room, 1.7 is quite good, but the 3.7 sound is more effortless and the ribbon tweeter transient and attack is much faster then the 1.7 QR tweeter , overall the 3.7 is a more relax sounding, with deeper bass and able to handle wider dynamic range the 1.7 , although 1.7 sound a little bit more coherent between high and bass, mid bass also a tad more punchy , but still 3.7 is a better speaker  IMHO

I used a pair of Jadis tube monoblock running at 80watt per channel at pure Class A and the Maggie made my amp pants. Most tube amps cannot rock the Maggie. I used a 500 watt Bryston later but I didn't like the synergy. That was the reason why I sold it.

Early Maggies & Apogees reminds me of a bad marriage. You want the woman so much marry her & discovered that your enslave to her. In short unless you’ve got the right amp for the Maggies you’ll be caught up in changing amps just for the sake of getting them to sing which to me is mooted point. Will end up as divorce. Lol

I had a jolida 60W integrated driving a MG 1.6 then. I like this pairing alot and thought it gave vocals and string instruments a more natural feel. I upgraded to pass pre power later on and that was a very good match. I thought string instruments and lifelike size vocals were its strength then. If not for the size of the panels, I would still love to own a pair of maggies... I suspect that down the road, i would gravitate towards the Maggies again.

The dealer ordered wrong color for me , running in now..... thanks to the room acoustic design , now bass and tonal balance is already quite good, it is the soundstage and imaging I still cannot decide where is the compromise point, some position I got very good soundstage but diffuse imaging , some positions is another way round.....position keep changing pass 2 days due to seasoning of speaker , differences recording and change of equipment , but it is fun😬

Picking up the discussion.

A long time ago, I had the SMGc's, but foolishly sold them. I've wanted to get a pair again, and some 10-12 years ago I walked into Absolute Sound in Adelphi. I was quoted almost S$9,000 for the small 5.1 model, meaning 6 panels).

I walked out because it didn't make sense. From what I've read and heard, they seem to be the same now.

I wonder if it's possible to do an MO, for say the 0.X or 1.X models.

Problem with Magnaplan is after a few year it need to send back agent for recondition , if buy direct from US shipping back to US might be a problem , I not sure whether TAS technician willing to help re-glue the speaker or not if it wasn’t buy from them..

I heard TAS told me the 3.7i do not require recondition because not the panel is glue at both side of the voice coil instead of only one side like older model, but I doubt so because I did hear some sign of distortion on a pair of used 3.7 I interested to buy before I order the 3.7i....anyway I ask before Hong kong 3.7i is about 8% cheaper than Singapore at last year NOV when TAS retail price is 9k plus , but beginning of this years TAS increased the retail price of 3.7i and now it cost $10k plus , I think the different is even more.

They aren't a very good agent when you are asking for anything except purchasing.

Unless it isn't from them, I don't see how they can not do any repairs.

They were able to re glue my rattling bass wires for 1.5 at the 10 year mark.

At that point, they warned that they don’t have cap to repair qr tweeters. The tweets died after a intense baby driver session.

they were also able to replace the ribbon tweet for my 2.5r

QR using the thin foil on Mylar. As Long as it doesn’t touch the tensioning discs it’s a relatively easy repair. Just a lot of painstaking work.

Just received my new pair of MG 3.7i aluminium trim (3rd pair) 2 days ago.....

Two thing I notice,
1) the speaker is heavier than the wood trim, not only weight is heavier, bass also heavier...
2) I use a resistor to reduce the ribbon tweeter for the earlier 2 pair , but this pair don’t need the resistor to sound balance.

Don’t know why.

Agree, more solid frame less buzz.

There’s another school of thought where you place the Maggie’s on single point bearings tripod format and allow the frame to resonate naturally.

Did a little modification two days ago , bypass the metal jumper of the Maggie 3.7i , the improvements in sound is tremendous, sound like upgrade my 500w power amp into 1000w , suddenly all imaging become more focus , higher resolution , and the bass is much much tighter with more slam , the mod can be recover anytime next time when want to sell the speaker, highly recommend this mod to all Maggie user .

Another tip i like to mention is to tilt the speaker forward so than it is 90 degree to the listener ear height....

If your ear level is lower then the middle point height of the planer , top and bottom portion of the speaker arrives your ear at different timing cause smearing imaging, tilt it forward help to tighten up the imaging a lot, before I do this soundstage is good but imaging not as pin point as traditional point source speaker, now imaging snap into focus , and everything sound so much lifelike.

You can use blue Tae to paste a small mirror/CD at the center height of the speaker tilt forward until you saw your face at the CD reflection to decide how much angle to tilt.

Incorrect, ideally your ear height should be at the middle height of the planer speaker so that the upper and lower portion will reach your ear at same timing.

when it is level right angle 90degree to the floor and your listening height is Not right in the middle of upper and lower of the panel  , for example, seating lower than the middle height, the lower portion of the speaker will reach your ear earlier than the upper portion, when you tilt it forward, timing is corrected , sound archor have a stand that able to tilt the Maggie forward, you may like to check it out

That’s interesting. I will try the tilting forward on the 3.7 also.

I’ve always come to conclusion that Maggie’s will never have pin point focus like regular dynamic Drivers as it’s a line source ever since the 1.7.

Also I seem to get very good focus of centre vocals with sufficient toe in.... but stage width collapses in that case. Like listening to headphones.

Any ideas on the amount of toe-in?

Bro IMHO speaker placement cannot solve every problem, room acoustic play a important role too, with proper acoustics treatment sometimes it is much easy to get what we want without compromise this or that , in my room I can hear very clearly the different between different speaker position and toe in angle, but almost all are very acceptable as Long as the speaker is around the sweet spot area...


think about it , in a room if change a little toe in angle can make a huge difference in sound and imaging/soundstage, than the listener might need to clamp their head to get the best sound if they want to hear good sound already... ;D

Bought a used pair of SMGc's from a local seller. Wasn't too expensive, condition was fair, especially since the speaker's close to 30 years old.

Seller told me tweeter on one side's a little soft, so I intend to rebuild it, and have ordered the kit direct from Magnepan.

I'll also be checking the parts of the crossover to see if any need replacing etc. It'll be a project, just to relive the sound I loved from the mid-90's when I had the exact same model, bought new from Absolute Sound.

Any thoughts, suggestions, welcome.

First and foremost, get yourself a deoxit D5 contact cleaner and leave it on overnight if you have to, before cleaning it off.
Apply on the fuse holder, fuses cap, remove tweeter attenuator or better do like what joamonte did. This is to confirm the problem is not just due to a poor contact. That alone will put  some brilliant back to you SMG.

Just change the electrolytic cap first, to see the changes is good enough for you before deciding on the can of worm decision on the film foil cap.

Just found out the tweeter repair kit is in country, so waiting for delivery. And it's a super long weekend, so might be Tuesday.

I also hooked up the speakers (SMGc's, used). One side works beautifully, no buzz, just wonderful music (using the CD from the Nov hifi show). The other side definitely has problems in the highs, so either tweeter or cap. The mids and lows are all ok, again no buzzing, so I think it's likely the tweeter. I'll also be investigating electrical connectivity first, just to make sure.

Listening to the working side mono, with a Dayton amp bridged to mono and an LG Blu-ray playing the CD. Enjoying it. My daughter walked in, and she said "what a large bluetooth speaker!"

I heard the AS Saleman told my FM acoustics and Maggie wasn’t a good match due to the “impedance problem” , was worry that I brought the wrong pre/power amp for the MG 3.7i...... but After listen for 2 week , I think FM acoustics/Maggie although might not be a perfect matching combination, but is not a bad match either, sound quality is quite impressive actually, the FM acoustics mono block make my Maggie 3.7i mid bass become as punching as box speaker, sound is very lively and organic, I heard detail that I never heard before from many of the CD I familiar at, all the music I play sound so realistic , like Musician is really performing inside my music room ; but the downside of this combination is I feel the sound is little too “real”   too neutral and direct , it lack the sweetness and smoothness of my Cary 845 tube amp , and deep bass wasn’t as extend and deep as my Jeff Rowland 500W class D MONO BLOCK., maybe because my pre power is lowest end of FM acoustics, the higher end FM acoustics might not have this problem I hear .....now I am interested to know how Maggie will sound with ARC , heard this 2 brand are perfect match for each other ::)

What’s your crossover frequency for the Strata 3? Do you use a HPF for the 3.6 and do you use a 12 or 24db slope?

Always curious on how others integrate their subs to Maggie’s and the settings.

Thanks.

The RELs can take high level inputs from the power amp  in parallel to the speaker outputs.  The subs kick in at about 45 Hertz and there is no High / Low pass filters in this setup as both the sub and the speakers receive the full range of signals. Tuning for each sub is individual due to placement etc. The RELs are not too much in your face and quite musical so they integrate quite well.

Lovely space you have there for the speakers. Gives them lots of room to breathe.

Where do your sub Drivers face?

I’m still trying to find the optimal crossover point. Have tried everything from 35 - 80, latter in trying to enforce some mid bass loss due to room acoustics.

The SMGc's wearing new shoes from Ikea...

These were home-made with Ikea Ivar parts and AliExpress brackets. Inspired by someone who did something similar, and on FB's Magnepan group, Benhur Foo.

Thank you!

I am actually looking for a reasonably priced pair of used, larger Maggie's.

Got the bug!

P.S. Not sure how the wife will handle several pairs of large speakers around the house. She does know that Stereo = 2.

No unless her name happen to be Maggie too.  ;D

Is that a pair of mirage m1 speakers I see in the background.
