Well, Dean, la di da and excuuuuuse us!

Sean, it's now up to 5 pages all about you and your new speakers. I hope you're happy now. Told you guys.

"My Salks can do this. My Salks can do that. They have unobtainium tweeters. My name is engraved in the curly cherry on the back, then highlighted in gold leaf.

Oh, did I tell you guys that "Jim" (Salk) and I really hit it off and he's invited me to be his guest on a Caribbean fishing trip next month?"

Now that I know you grew up in Chino and your parents have questionable taste in coatracks, you should be more humble.

"It's okay coat rack, Bob doesn't mean to say such cruel things about you. Tell you what, if Bob ever visits you can accidentally fall over on top of him and get one of your arms stuck in his nostril. Yeah, we'll see who's laughing then. . . "

Those speakers are absolutely beautiful to look at. If they sound half as good as they look they must be simply amazing. After your posting i decided to look them up on the net. I found a review on Audioholics and the reviewer owns a set of song towers that he compared them to. Very good review indeed. During his review he dismantled one of the speakers and took pics.Now another website whose name i wont mention, made remarks about the not so elaborate (cheap) crossover in our Beloved axioms. So i am goin to share a picture of the crossover from a 4000.00 set of salk speakers which are highly regarded.




Crossovers dont need to be complex to be effective.

Thank you, Richard! Yes, to me, they do sound as good as they look.

Dennis Murphy, who designed the crossover, did a wonderful job. And you make a good point, it doesn't have to be complex to be effective.

Just curious, but is his name pronounced like "gym sock," or is the L not silent?
