It does not get any better than this, but likes some good space. You got it? Then read on....:D

We are not too far from Bay Area, CA

Driver Complement per channel:
• One Raven R-2 - pure ribbon tweeter
• Two Focal Audium 7K - 7" Poly Kevlar cone midranges

The crossovers were designed and tested by Joe D'Appolito (originator of the "D'Appolito Configuration" ) and he also designed the cabinet parameters including cabinet size and woofer vent dimensions. Cabinet construction was provided by a professional carpenter.

These beautifully designed, acoustically accurate speakers were custom designed with no limitations other than need to fit through a doorway.

• Five degree angled mid-tweeter section
• System includes Cardas binding post cables (for single amp/single wiring) • Two sets of gold/rhodium binding posts (providing bi-amp/bi-wire capability) • Mid-tweeter crossover in acoustically separate enclosure accessible through rear of mid- tweeter section.
• Overall height: 67" • Overall width: 17.75" • Overall depth: 32"

System Weight: 750 lbs. (125lbs. each mid-tweeter section, 250lbs. each woofer section)
Yes, they rock.
