    I have the Image 7PT, which is the same thing as the 5T with an added powered sub section below. I enjoyed them. I haven't had them hooked up in 10 years. I'll probably put them on the variac this weekend and get them hooked back up so I can get a refresher. I'm practically giving away the 7PT, 9C center and 10S dipole surrounds, just a few pesos more than what they're asking for the 5's. IF we can find a time to get them to you you're more than welcome to take them for a drive around the block and see if you think they're for you or not. The towers come with a metal outrigger that is functional, however, if I was to put them in service again I'd probably make a new set just a bit thicker...maybe out of 3/8's stock.

    This pic is what I have minus the sub.

    Thanks for the offer Kerry, but I'm not really looking for a complete system, just some towers for the front. Thought someone might expand a bit on their sound signature. Plus I'm done with the powered tower thing. Generous offer though, thanks man.

    No sweat, man. I bought the 7's because I got a great deal on them, and, I didn't care for the way the 5, or 6, handled bass. My first experience with that line was a pair of 2B's I had paired with a Velodyne sub. Liked that set up a lot. A buddy loved it and talked me in to selling them to him and me getting a complete HT setup. The 7's do a good job at presenting a smooth sound throughout the entire range. I felt like the 5 and 6 both had humps or dips. But, I was young back then, and, I haven't had ears on them in 10 years.

    I did have concerns at the time about buying a pair of speakers that had am integral amp that might be costly to replace, or worse, impossible to replace in the future.
