@Michael, Good to know that you and Aldcoll were able to get first crack at listening to them! I will report back when they start to open up!
@Laura, Thanks for the tip, I will add a little toe in as advised, I have not attached the plinths for this reason. So far tho the speakers are sounding great as is.
@jriggy, Yes, I complete agree on the change in the character, my Selah's speakers went much richer in it's cherry tones.
