Cogitech,

You can take a look at the Gen1 CHP-70 at rumoh.nl - Dave stated they have some stock. The driver is slightly less exptended at top and bottom than EL-70, but pretty similar sound overall (maybe slightly warmer), which is sweet and enjoyable. The vocal presence of CHP-70.1 is slightly more felt, possibly due to the overall balance of the driver. At the low end EL-70 definitely has an edge, with less excursion when you are playing louder. Also read that they should work in same tuning in a box like the Microtowers.

I have a pair of EL70 microTowers that I love and would like to add a center channel to my setup. What drivers(s) should I be looking at for a clean sonic match that are available? I would love to find another pair of el70's (I could always use the one of the centers as replacements for a main if I had to), but looks like that just isn't going to happen - missed my chance.

Half? Does that mean you have one pair you can still sell because if so - Cash/Credit/Paypal/Western Union/??? Oh wait, are these EnABL'd? Not sure I can afford the tricked out ones.

Just saw your email. Explains why I wasn't seeing email notifications - old email addy.
