If they sound similar to the Scaena loudspeakers pictured and retail for a fraction of their price, this will be a home run IMHO. Those speakers image like no other and have a soundstage that you have to hear to believe. Zoot horn can verify that statement. We both heard at the audio show in Atlanta last April.

We know these speakers very well. I have checked them out before.

I know our base is plenty small enough for the height of the speaker.

Jesse,
How many people bought the Amazings and AL-III's ? How about the big ole Klipsch and Polks ? I think they look great. Very cool looking. I can envision them with some cool looking small fake plants around those bases. I'd buy them if I had your wallet ! :D

Ok, NO JOKE!!! I was taking a pic of the Powder coated extrusion and when I was done, I kicked the drop pieces that were holding the legs up across the floor and this is how they wound up.

Looks like the Klingon High Council has spoken. To use any other design now would be "ILLOGICAL". :lol: :lol: :lol:

Strap a 35-lb weight on the bottom of the stand & I'll bet that would firm these right up~

But does the base have enough weight to impede it from tipping over?
