The other one showed up :thumb:

Sorry about the shabby pictures. Quick shots with the cell phone. Better pictures coming over the weekend.

 We now have them ready for audition in our New York facility.

Thats pretty sweet.  You should also post that in the AVS Salk thread, although your phone may be ringing off the hook!

Wow, that's really amazing, Bill; very kind of you to do.  What are the specs concerning the system driving them?

Is there a reason you haven't attached the plinth's?  I heard a pair of Salks w/o the plinth's and the low end was digging into the floor.  The floor consisted of floor/ceiling joists with no insulation.

 Only because the speaker arrived about a half hour before I had to leave to take my grandma to the hospital. I will get them set up properly (along with the rest of the system) over the next couple days.
 The carpet is rather thick so I know they have to be installed to get the best sound.

I hope your grandmother is doing well.

Thanks guys. Wednesday I had to bring my grandpa to the hospital and spent the day there, Thursday I get a call and had to bring grandma. At least they were in the same room :lol:
 Grandpa was a big scare. They're doing much better now.

 Thanks again for the concerns.

Hi everyone,
 I had a few complications with the family again Friday into the weekend so was not able to get the bases set up and better photographs. I'll get them early this week.

K Shep is referring to my speakers without the plinth. Since I added the plinths, it has tightened up the bottom end noticeably. Highly recommended to add the plinths.
