    Almost bought a set of oak 901's. Almost bought some Polk SDA's. Really wanted Klipsch Horns.

    Ended up with a set of Infinity RS IIIb and Carver components. Pretty nice. They stayed with the x.

    Now have some pretty decent Klipsh, but not the giant corner horns.

    Magnaplaners were a kinda cool concept.

    Those new Bose systems sure look odd to me. "What's wrong with a Twin....?" I have a Bose system for my TV and it kicks ***.

    Currently running Snell D7s in one room and a pair of large Polk towers in the media room. The Polks almost hold their ground with the Snells, but have suffered a capacitor blow-up in the midrange crossover network that took out the whole board. In defense of Polk (made in Maryland), it could have happened to anyone, and they replaced the entire board for less than $100.

    In the process of building a set of towers from scratch. Have $1,400 worth of drivers and crossover components in my lab and am trying to source 1" MDF. Anyone know where I can get 1" MDF? The design is a D'Apollito design and should sound pretty darn good if I ever get all the materials to build the pair. They will weigh a ton, but I can't pick up my Polks by myself so nothing new there.

    John, the new ones I have are a 2 channel VS the other is a 4 channel. Also the output is lower. The new one has a max crowd of 200 ant the older one has a max crowd limit of 2000, I believe. The new larger system are about the same out put as my large system, but withall kinds of effects that I don't need.
