Location: West Australia, near to the beach, natural ambient sounds mostly.
The Met-7 on first appearance is not significantly different to many modern 'three-in-one' speakers, and some Bose speaker models also.
The above mentioned are typically wired with the woofer full range and a single series cap supplying the tweeter.
What is the crossover arrangement in the Met-7 ?.

Same, the drivers are custom and have what looks like wooden phase plugs. Electronics lends itself to rote precision the actual producing of the sound field from a simple two source setup remains a simulacrum and anything is fair.

I won a pair of bookshelf speakers (<$600) at a company event and I had not shopped for speakers for 15 or more years (family and kids). I asked the store to play me blind a few choices. Number one OK the BBC announcer sound, correct KEF. Number two the west coast in your face rock sound, correct JBL. Number 3 my old friend the polite east coast sound, correct again Snell.

I'm only on my 3rd pair of hifi speakers ever. Pair 2 are still in use and are time aligned in a similar style to the Mets (infinity modulus). They have their compromises and fail pretty much all of Richard's requirements. But in a small room they disappear in a way I have only heard LS3/5a do. I will trade certain traits of accuracy for the ability to close my eyes and not be able to work out where the speakers are.

When I was auditioning these the ATC SCM20 were just out. I loved the big actives so listened to them. They were impressive in many ways but did odd things with the vertical plane and did not vanish. Their younger brothers the SCM10 did but by then it was too late. ATCs are marmite, but I still love the big studio monitors. If I win the lottery the media room will have soffit mount SCMs
