These are the CSS EL70 EnABLed drivers in the Frugel Horn Mk. III. Oak Veneer with Watco Fruitwood oil and hand rubbed wax. A big thanks goes to chrisb, planet10, Mark Audio, and CSS. Not sure if Scottmoose was involved in these or not but thank you if you were.

Lousy pic. I'll go take another.

Better pics.

I will listen more in this location before I comment. I have heard them in 4 spots so far. Yes I know they are too close to the wall but this is where I would like to use them.

They are not too close to the wall. If you have too big a bass you might have to shove more stuffing thru the driver hole.

Default I'm a bit baffled.....

This is a bit OT but since Cal brought it up, like wayyy up near the ceiling I just gotta ask, "Why do so many people hang their TV sets way up high on a wall like a picture where you have to squint to see that large hi resolution screen you just paid good money for and screw up your neck doing so?"

I got a 40" Samesong LCD HDTV set and parked it at 35" center screen from floor just across the coffee table from me parked on the couch in the sweet spot for the stereo system so I can see the beautiful thing up close in it's hi-def glory. At a distance of 5-1/2 feet it subtends an angle that is the same effect as a truly large screen in a theater. The set came without a stand so I fabricated one from the wheeled base of a swivel office chair.

You can sit really close to these newfangle HDTV's people. They look really good thanx to the high definition.

Connecting the TV stereo line level outputs to the vac toob and DIY speakers sound system is an awesome improvement over the small internal TV speakers. No brainer there.

We now return you to the regular program in progress.

That's in the bedroom at the end of the bed so the angle is perfect. Hard to see but it is tilted downward to the eye axis. No neck strain there. Quite the opposite.

I do the same thing in the livingroom. When sitting in the comfy chairs the angle is just perfect. No having to put your chair upright and look down at the TV. Perfectly aligned, no neck strain. Precisely the reason I hung them on the walls.

Well, around here they give you 760 HD boxes so it's not that great up close. Besides when I get too close the the plasma TV in the livingroom, I begin to sweat. Those seem to give off a lot of heat.

I belive that the specification for these flat-panels is a veiwing distance of a minimum 3.5 screen heights.

We have our TV mounted high and from where we sit the angle is very good.
