I was just curious if anyone had heard the x-statik open baffles from av123 and how they would compare to say the m80's(which i own ) I know they wouldn't have the slam that i love in my 80's but i have read they sound very "open". I take that to mean they would sound like being in a jazz hall..maybe less directional?? I am not in the market to replace my 80's i was just curious

I have not heard them, but there are measurements over at They have a slight hump in the midrange that would probably give them a slightly warmer sound. They also have measurably more distortion than the M80s. Not sure exactly how that would effect the sound.

That's baffling.
Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.
