would the new speakers work in an enclosed cabinet with grill at front?

what would be the connection arrangement like if connect the speakers using normal AVR + power amp?

Not a technical question, but can anyone tell me how the prototype LFR1100's shown at SSI were finished? Were they 'real wood' and if so what type?

Just in case everyone at Axiom is busy with website stuff- These are my opinions ONLY! smile

mpyw- I can't imagine the new speakers would work well in an enclosed cabinet because they rely on a suitable reflection from the rear-driving speakers. Somebody else will have to answer the hookup question!

Cohesion: I BELIEVE the demo units were Rosewood veneer- a wood finish!

Thanks Mark! I will await confirmation. Those prototypes looked so good I may have to order mine the same. Here comes another credit card order! I guess we'll find out if the security hole has been fixed...

Regarding mpyw's hookup question: does your AVR have pre-outs? If not you may have another upgrade opportunity coming your way!

Hi cohesion,
They were VaSSallo's real wood veneer in rosewood; they were stunning !

It will not work; there is an array of four speakers on the back side which need to breathe in opened space.

The DSP box would be connected between the pre-out outputs of the AVR and the stand alone amplifier.

Wow! I assume you meant to type BREED instead of Bread!

So, these speakers BREED? If I buy a pair, I can maybe expect the pitter-patter of little M3s or M2s soon?

You guys have SERIOUSLY developed technology for this speaker that's astounding! grin

Re: using two DSP'd centers plus a LFR. I know the picture above showing the back of the unit is of the prototype, but I don't imagine it's going to be any wider, and that back panel looks pretty crowded. With a little squeezing I can see how another single input/output could be added for a center, but two might be pushing it.

But as long as the centers are matched there's no need for two separate DSP filters, the output can be split with a Y, and that run to the inputs of two individual amp channels.

I was guessing it was something like that! Unfortunately I don't know how they look in person but they sure as h-e-double-hockeystick look good in the photos! Can someone please tell me the cost (not including a potentially cancelled and reissued credit card) should I want to upgrade my order to that finish? smile
