    I didn't think they were but Focal is the only one I've seen shaped like that.

    Thanks guys!

    My Dad was a Wilson Audio fan and I actually turned him on to JM lab... I have always admired Focal's Utopia line. He had the Grande Utopias for a decade and it was always a treat to experience their capabilities...

    I doubt I will update the crossovers in these... :p hhehe

    They definitely allow them to be moved out the way when I need them to be... at 140# they are definitely not a one person lift

    lol, funny enough, the bolts that the other owner used for spikes (not spikes obviously) fit perfectly between the dolly center spacing, so they are very secure on the dolly... almost like they are meant to be..... :p

    Beat me to it. I remember when the had long names with all that JM Labs in every name. Do they still go by JM or did they drop that?

    JM is the initials of the owner/founder of JM labs/Focal.

    They seemed to blurred the lines at some point, but Focal was originally the drivers and JM Lab was the complete speaker. I definitely see a lot more (entry level) items branded Focal

    A good example is the Chorus line, they are "Focal" (maybe by JM lab) on the speaker but they are branded as Focal mainly

    When I'm doing remodeling, I just take one of these from room to room... never thought of going "all out" on a jobsite stereo. Intriguing.

    Lol, the wall behind the speakers is being rocked just for sound and insulation, I'm most likely going to do barn wood or some type of wood there, hence all of the misc pieces and sizes :P
