Default Rushmore speakers?

Thoughts on their current value and comparisons to newer speakers. Have lx521 and wondered if they would be step up, down. Sideways?

Thanks

Go for it! Everybody needs at least two-three systems with different approach. Besides each room in the house should have its dedicated speakers.
Arn't rushmore active? Never heard those.
Get them and report back.

If I had the wallet and a strong enough back, I'd already have a set .

- 'sight unheard'

edit - now my curiosity is piqued on these, although I'll never so much as see a pair.. Are these an open baffle design?

what I like about rushmore is that it has four classA amplifiers per side, so in the winter it doubles as a furnace...

Must have missed that part in the .PDF

I care. Learn from da master by example.

I had assumed you had actually seen a pair.

Fogeddaboutit, I'll just get my own set and see for myself
