Great review.

Those speakers look different then what I remember seeing here awhile back. The bases are different and it looks like the body tapers down from bottom to top? Also I thought these were designed to run without a sub, now it mentions what I'm guessing is a Subrosa? How can a 110 db sub even pretend to keep up with a pair of 120 db speakers? Not trying to be too critical just curious is all. Hope everyone is having fun at the fest!!

Hi everyone Bob ask me to post this for him!

HI, Bob here. Good questions: The taper that shows in the photo is from the camera angle shot from below. The base is not the final production base, rather only a temporary one. Room gain adds approximately 10 dB below 100 Hz to bring the woofer output up to the ALS output. Above 100 Hz room gain is nil; ALS output decreases as woofer output increases as we go down in frequency below 100 Hz. Not only that, the woofer has a volume control. Hope this helps, Bob Carver.
