    I just came into possession of a B&W LCR60 S3. I have noticed one of the bass units is slightly louder than the other. So when I am directly in front of the speaker the sound seems to come from just left of the center line of the speaker. I was wondering if this is normal? If not, what can be done about it?

    It is a 2 1/2 way speaker.

    That means one of the woofers plays 400hz and lower. The other woofer runs up and also plays midrange to the 4kz cut-off. Hence... 2 1/2 way.

    Thanks, Sam. Suddenly the circuit diagram for this speaker make sense!
