I could have sworn there was a plan to include a tube-driven crossover with separate sub....

nope... the surface area of the mini drivers in each speaker equals that of a 15" driver per channel.
There WILL be tubes... but not for a sub :-k

you said the will be 5 inch drivers on the side , I am just wondering how they will be cut in....I was looking at the cross section on the side..One is curved and the inside is flat....With maybe an 1.5 inch gap between the two...

I'll tell you this....on the inside? You won't be able to squeeze a credit card through. The tolerances are pretty tight. James, they are taller than I thought. Are they going to be trimmed or is that really how tall they are gonna be? I know the stands and top are minuscule but damn.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Didn't want to limit the market to 10' ceilings and above?
It should sound like it isn't there!

It's "usually" used for SPEAKERS.
It's a custom designed extrusion we are having made...
