Sealed make integration with a sub easier but for music you might find you don't need a sub if you go ported. For HT I don't think it much matters. You'll need a sub to dig deep for the full effect on movies and integration I don't think much matters. You'll be crossing low enough that the only content down there is shit blowing up. YMMV

As DIY we're not worrying about profit margins, increased shipping/packaging costs due to weight, assembly time, trying to save a few extra $$$'s vs. quality XO parts, etc., etc.. The Tritrix are an uber budget design and at the low end of the price scale the margin isn't so big vs. commercial but it gets wider as you go up in price. There's nothing budget about the Statements!

I found them a little bright for my taste and had some slight issues with sibilance - the the designer did warn they were voiced to sound 'forward'. I found in the thread that someone adjusted the padding resistors for the tweeter slightly so I made those changes. So far it sounds like a good improvement for such a simple tweek - gotta love being able to do those tweaks to tailor the speakers to your own preferences! I'll be able to let them get a little loud tonight so I'll see how they do now at higher volume levels.
