New lower-end flat panel loudspeakers?

Post by baddfingerz » Tue Dec 11, 2007 4:48 pm

I don't know who managed to keep the Carver moniker but I saw some narrow, flat, long loudspeakers for home theater at ridiculous close-out prices.

This place: really sells the mondo deals when they buy out a companies' whole inventory but these prices were so low that I thought they must be really modest speakers.

I didn't even know they made speakers but w/ the new economy whoever calls themselves Carver probably could import rat turds if there was a market.

C'mon now..Some of you own some serious Carver surround systems. Any opinions please?

If you are talking about those TS-line speakers (the silver ones) then you are right--those are from teh VERY end of the Carver era, and are pretty much crap. They might be good for "background music", and might even be OK for side and rear speakers in a 5.1, 7.1 or 9.1 setup, but they are pretty much useless as main speakers.

However, if you are talking about the "Bohlender Graebener RD48 Planar Transducer", those are supposed to be good drivers. I've never heard them myself, but they seem to be popular with DIY builders. You might ask "Toymaker" if he's heard them--if anyone has, it would be him...
