These ones? Wish you were here, I got those. 200+ hours and I'm not afraid to BLAST 'EM! (they can take it) or they are taking it. In progress and I need a better amp. I need 200 watts of pure muscle, nothing less. Let's have it

They are really good, sound like a larger version of the RS5.

Yea, it does interest me, the idea of a 1.5 way.  Although baffle step takes place a bit above the “200hz” point.  I remember an old pdf by Klipsch showing the effects of putting a heresy on a stand, there was basically a huge hole below 200hz, perhaps this baffle step is going after that.

I noticed L0rdGwyn had a pair, then sold a couple of months later.

RDavidson, thanks! Good to hear from you on it. At the moment I'm not sure what I'm going to do - rethinking what price tier I need to be in for these.
