Default B5 caught in wild

Here are some pics of B5.

Will let it acclimate to room temperature tonight before trying to hook it up.

More pics. The power brick, and of course, the shot of my driveway. I think the plowguy was tired here. More snow tomorrow. Will work from home, hopefully give the B5 a listen, if I can find or make an RCA cable.

Can these open baffle setups rock or are they only for chamber music and jazz?

If you are refering to rock music, yes they can. They have a very fast feel to them.
There are different drivers that might be better for one form of music over another, but the 12" driver I heard was great for rock.

LABJr,
I have a couple of Eminence Definemax LO15 and Alpha-15's you can borrow if you want.
I should be getting some AE Dipole15's at some point soon.
You just have to decide what full ranger you want to go with.

ra7,
I have Lowther DX4 and PM5As.
These will require probably full attentuation of the mid-range to match up with the Dipole 15's. But that's just a theory, I have not seen them yet. I ordered late last year.
