LLLLLadiiiiies and Gentlemen....(Like Michael Buffer) On this corner the venerable, been around forever(though with many variants) Horn Loaded Speaker. Wearing the time-proven acoustic transformer namely the Horn. On the far corner, wearing; Well you name it: Sealed Enclosure, Bass Reflex, Ported, Acoustic Suspension(Do they make these anymore?), Planar (Electrostatic or Electomagnetic) Ribbon and all the variations thereof. Let's keep it clean. No personal insults. When expressing negative thoughts on technology of some sort, it would help our understanding of the matter if some scientific or even subjective explanation is attached instead of the much abused "xxxx sucks". We know there will be no clear winner here, just exchanges of opinions, listening experiences, anecdotes, etc. I hope all those that jumped in on the Polk VS Klipsch thread initiated by Mark Russ will do so here. Hopefully on a more sedate and civilized matter. BELL!
