How obvious! *why couldn't I think of that myself...!? Duh!

I'm still somewhat confused... I guess it's just personal doubts, but can a speaker with one full-range like these really make as good a sound as 2-ways like the smaller B&W's (303 - 309)?

I know simplicity is a nice thing, but nothing should be simpler than it needs to be.

Jennice - I had doubts as well until I heard a set of fullrange speakers in a proper enclosure. They may not work as well for what I call busy music(lots of instruments) but for my listening taste and needs they should work great.

Best thing is to listen to a set with a CD you are familiar with. You'll be suprised I bet.

They also make superb extended midranges -- if you need more, you can add an active sub and maybe a super-tweeter (active or passive)
