Are those the monitors that you place upside down to get the tweeters at the right level Dusty?

If you put them on any kind of stand, yes, otherwise they'd be up in the rafters, no?  But I live in a crummy non-bottom-floor apartment, I'm pretty sure I'd get assassinated if I even bought them.  I think a separate dwelling would come before $125,000 monitors.

That said, even if I had a proper studio with room treatments and whatnot, I'd still use them with the theory that more drivers with smaller travel == more linear bass, I.e. for deep bass, not exaggerated bass.  Mostly. ?

Active crossover, 2400W for the bottom cab, 2400W for the bass units in the top cab, 550W for the mid and 275W for the tweeter.  330lb weight for the top cab and 308lb for the bottom (290 kg in all, 638 lb). And that is just one - double for stereo. Bit of an animal, really.

Oh yes - they are British :D

I like the grab handles...as if these could be carried.   :D

I have grab handles. I doubt anyone smaller than yourself could make them a useful feature though. :P
