Although Dan and Mark bring up excellent easy-to-understand measuring options, I'm still smarting over some comments made in the Shoutbox about our beloved national institution, Canadian Tire, by he-who-shall-remain-anonymous. Because of those ill-advised words, we will not be giving measurements in inches. We will be giving them in Canadian Tire Money, and you'll have to figure out the conversion to 'US Customary Units' yourself!

I don't know about the sound but on looks only I think it looks much better, much less boxy. I hope it does well during the listening tests. Good luck!

But, Volvo has been proving that "boxy is good" for decades.

Good call on the puck equivalencies, Mark.

Jack has now been "satisfied" by the pictures of the speaker and its exposed ports.

Just sayin'
