Bottom Line:   
The sweetest sound you ever heard with bass that goes so low you can't tell if you're hearing it or feeling it, but man, what a packing crate this bluto refrigerator is ! JM could definitely get its act together on freeing up the sound imgage from the box, as the resonance cause the sound to sort of cling to the enclosure. I think they need to loose their fear of non superluxury visuals and put some heay wool felt or viscoelastic surrounds on the driver panels. The sound is so beautiful and erotic and it is screaming Free Me From This Enclosure. Use BIG amp of highest quality with tons of power reserve so the bass doesn't wimp out, and room will benefit from being symmetrical , plug up the fireplace if you have one or the chimney will become a one note organ pipe (with really weird one note throbbing sound), and have strong guys to help you slide them around. Also, carpet room with comercial or industrial carpet, because you will need to move these around a lot to get the focus right and you will do a number to cute home floorcoverings if you're not careful. Pipedreams may eat its lunch when it comes to imaging, but this sweetheart will rub your belly until you
pass out.
