Amazing silver capabilities

Hello again to all. could someone please post the specs for the amazing silvers? also as a sonic comparison how do they rate VS ALIIIs? the reason i ask is that a pair has made its self available to me. i would like to keep the IIIs and use them as rears in a HT set-up. would they balance well with the silvers?

audioassassin77,

I have both the Amazing Silvers and the ALIII's in a home theater setup - driven by Sunfire CG Sig amp. The ALIII's are used for the rear surrounds. Absolutely awesome ! Blend very well. Before I purchased the Silvers, I was using some old EPI A10 speakers - which did an excellent job for the rear surrounds, but the horn tweeters definately had a "different" sound than the front ALIII ribbons - did not blend very well.

It is and has been proven before. Somewhere in the Carver speaker thread [I think] there is instructions on how to ship properly.

Here it is...Good luck!

Looks as though most of your questions have been answered but I'll add my $.02.

The ALIII's make great rears with Silvers or Platinums. I've currently got all three. The Silvers beat out the AL's in low end for sure.

However, once you've got Silvers for front and ALIII's for rear, you'll be looking for a center. There are two of us that I know of here that are planning to make a center utilizing carver ribbon(s).

If you've got the room, a pair of any of the three on either side of the screen (or behind it if you're doing the projector) is AWESOME!! But for a normal sized room, you'll be looking to set a ribbon horizontally over/under the screeen.

Keep us posted.

23-40??? Has to be a typo???

No sir. For the Plat's and Silvers.
