Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

Wow, Sonnie...those have to be near the height of consumer excess and among the least Earth friendly CE products made. According to the X1000.5 specs page, they consume 700 watts at idle. So not only do you pay up front, those of us in warmer climates especially, would see a significant increase in cooling costs.

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

All too often for my tastes expensive is just plain ugly...

I don't think there is one good looking speaker at all in this lot!! Once you take out the knowledge of how expensive the are (so they must be sensational) they look rubbish, well to me anyway.

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

I guess I don't have the biggest sub box

The room itself as it has been shaped is a horn below 20 Hz, then actually the holes in the floor are not really the final mouths below this frequency and the length from the throat to the listening position is half of a wavelength of 10 Hz. That is why we are getting response down to 10Hz better than 30 Hz.

Rare, weird, unusual, amazing etc.........

I've seen that horn sub construction before... but had forgotten about it. I imagine that would be hard to top.
