Are there any pictures or write ups from the Munich show?  I haven't been able to find anything yet.

Do the X3 / X5 use sheetrock screws to hold the drivers like the M3 / M4, or machine screws into threaded inserts as in the X2?

Machine screws so the drivers are nice and solidly mounted.

Nice, glad to hear that! I was pretty sure they would be, just checkin'  :D

And BTW I had M3 Triode Masters and checked the driver screws a few times for tightness.  Always good and tight, I added just an eighth turn once.  So the screws in the M series speakers straight into the MDF hold the drivers very well also.  No problem with that commonly used method.

On the X3 / X5 page of the Spatial Audio website, I'm really looking forward to the words "under construction" being removed so we can see the specs.

Yes, the X5 passive section (and X3) works from 100Hz and up, at 8 Ohms, so a small amp will actually drive it loud. SET amps are welcome in this case. But, the max power is 200W RMS, so large amps are fine as well. Almost blow out proof. This allows you the freedom to use your favorite amp and not worry about compatibility issues.

Any consideration regarding amp gain to match the plate amp? I know Hypex has gain adjustment on the plate, but not sure how hard will it be to match the amp for the top section.

Thanks,
Gjorgji

I have tried a number of different amps  (tube and SS) with various gain specs from 20 to 32 and not had any issues. Like you say, the Hypex bass amp has adjustable gain to easily match the main amp.

Clayton do you have any plans on coming out with a open baffle sub setup with these amps and possibly the Acoustic Elegance OB drivers? I have heard nothing but great things about the Acoustic Elegance drivers and your products seem to make the best use of them that i have seen that still keep in mind they are going in a home not a cathedral like some of the other open baffle speakers i have seen. I am using a custom built sealed sub with a 300 watt plate amp that only covers under around 40 Hz which is where the M3 start to drop off but having that natural OB response all the way down to the 20 Hz range would be a dream scenario
