    The long-awaited C-C3 is to be released in a few weeks and Energy finally has some pics on its Web site. What a bummer visually. [​IMG]

    It looks...weird. I know we buy speakers for how they sound, but unlike the rest of the new C-series, this is one speaker that definitely needs to have the grill on.

    Looks like I will be keeping my awesome Energy AC-300 longer than I thought. [​IMG]

    Don't like the dual mids? I think it looks pretty cool.

    But 9 times out of 10, speakers look a lot better in person. So maybe you should check it out in person. I know I will. [​IMG]

    I wonder why they didn't line up all the drivers, I hope it wasn't just for aesthetic reasons.

    Those are some tiny mids though, and just about anything with maple and silver is nice.

    I currently have C-3's for surrounds. Like 'em a lot. They beat out B&W, Paradigm, Def Tech, and a few others when I was looking around. Check this out:

    Check out Chart 2 of the measurements. Ever seen a flatter freq response for the money? I haven't. [​IMG] That's why I bought them.

    The C-3s certainly have a flat response, but, the recent soundstage measurements taken on the ascend CBM-170 is noticeably flatter. FYI, yes, I have seen a flatter response for considerably less money (the CBM-170).

    Randy- "Where's the beef?" [​IMG] I.e., where's a link? Heck, I'm always looking for a way to improve my system...
