Strength:

Big enough for some good strong bass and yet so subtle when needed.Works great with music as well as movies .The right balance for DVDAudio and SACD.

Weakness:

They are a little large for the WAF, but thats a none issue in my home.No one makes a good set of mounts for corner placement so I had to make my own.

I have taken the Paradigm road thru the Performance,Monitor, and now into the Reference series.The ADP470 is amazing! I was concerned that with my room mandated rear corner placement I wasn't going to get the full effect of the dipolar speaker.Boy was I wrong......The ADP470 washed the rear wall located about 24 inches behind my seating position with sound as well as up the sides as per Mr. Lucas' THX requirements. I am now a firm believer in di or maybe even bi polars for the rear surrounds.Tears of the Sun, with the jungle ambiance as well as the fly bys and gunfire sold me. Threw the old Fleetwood Mac Rumours DVDAudio in as well, and they have the balls as well directionality needed for the hi resolution Audio.They don't let you know where they are unless the music mandates it.
