I am the 3 rd owner of these speakers and have had them now for 8 months.... i got them from a estate sale.. I have wanted these speakers since i was 17 years old. My neighbor worked at speaker lab in seattle and i used to help him after school put together passive crossovers for speaker lab speakers, Das 3 , das 7 , and das 8, series speakers... I got to hear and see the very first production of the carver Towers speakers... I also got to see and help on the production of them at the factory in Ballard.. Anyway I would go into magnolia High Fi and hear them in one of there listening rooms and it was love at first sight... they were being drivin by 2 500 watt caver amps and it was insane!!! I couldnt get over how crystal clear and crisp the sound was, the amazing clarity of the ribbon tweeters, and the pounding bass !!!! I believe at the time they were 1800.00 Ea in 1997..
I am running a small sony Home receiver on them right now at 70 watts per channel, but its not even close to what I know these speakers are capeable of!!! So i am looking at getting a good amp for them and having atleast 250 watts per speaker, OR ? what do you reccomend to make them sing ? anyway I have had my dream come true and i have my speakers !!!
