    Martice,
    I've heard of them, but have not actually heard them. I did read somewhere that they aren't the best sounding speakers in the world and some feel that the 4" drivers don't move enough air to give realistic SPL's. But I think that may have come from someone that believes in 8"+ drivers in an array.
    They're expensive as hell though, so should be good for bragging rights! [​IMG]

    I have heard them a number of times and strongly dislike them, despite what some reviewers may say about them. IMO, their main strength seems to be that they are capable of playing at extremely LOUD levels. In fact, at high-fi shows, you can usually tell when you're approaching the Pipe Dreams room due to the deafening music emanating from within.
    If I won a pair in a contest, I would quickly sell them and by something musical and refined.
    As with most everything, YMMV.

    John,

    I think the issue was output in the sub 80Hz region. Keep in mind, the guy I'm referring to builds his own stuff and feels that the Pipedreams have some serious compromises.
