CLASH OF THE FLAT GIANTS

What is your favorite speakers you wish you want to have it again or never let go off from hard cold frozen hands? :lol:

Well, I am talking about the FLAT ones so box type need not apply here. It's for either ESL driven or Planar Type speakers I am interested in.

Thanks for the funs!

Re: CLASH OF THE FLAT GIANTS

I totally forgot to ask in my previous post in the thread.

If you Vote for Something Else, PLEASE POST in the thread with the name and the model of the speaker you want to have it (again) or don't want to let go. LOL

Re: CLASH OF THE FLAT GIANTS

Well, I voted for ribbons (my AL-IIIs are great). Need to audition some MLs though. I'm surprised the Klipsch and Polk weren't on the list, considering the makeup of this forum. Oh, I see — FLAT giants. 8)

Especially for Polish Strippers! Polls are more interesting when people vote in them! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Now, you state that Box Types need not apply. The Carver AL-III is half box, half ribbon and most of the Martin Logans are of that same design, so do they still qualify?

Poles Are Funs When people Dancing Around it in their own skin. :shock:

I think the box for the bass driver should be included as an exception and accepts that in the FLAT type since many FLAT ones still carries them underneath. :D

So, Cast Your Vote Away!

Re: CLASH OF THE FLAT GIANTS

Well, you're right about the AL-IIIs; they ARE a hybrid...

So who voted for "something different" and what was it??

Stevewithrow, WHERE did you find that??? I've been looking for that for the past 3 months as a present for my favorite Pole. Both he and his sweetie would pee their pants when they got this!
