Congrats...I am going to list my B&W 800s for sale and probably order sometime 1st quarter new year too :D :D

I am shaking my head at the price to performance of these speakers. I spent almost three times the amount years ago for the 800s, and these X3s tick all of the boxes I wanted or wish to have; powerful, musical, and dynamic. My 800s are musical but in a different way, but no heft or speed. I can’t wait to hear what 300 tube watts driven from my McIntosh MC2301 will do. Meanwhile, I will live vicariously through you all who are getting the X3s. So far, it’s been a great read and story.

I used to have some Tri y  headers, forgot who, but they always leaked at the down pipe connection....ended up welding them closed, defeats the purpose of easy removal, haha.

How long did it take from order to delivery to get your X3s? Are you on the east coast? I would love to hear your setup. For that matter, anyone on east coast have X3s yet? I might be willing to travel to hear these up close. Thanks.

@shakey,

What amps and how much power are you using for the X3s? I assume not really a big powerful amp because of the efficiency of the X3. Thanks
