    That’s the first thing I looked at before I signed the release form, the hole wasnt fully through the box, I pulled it open to check and don’t see anything whatsoever

    They sometimes like to poke the hole right where the "Fragile Handle With Care" sticker is.

    :D

    BTW the name and address is visible on the shipping label. Congrats on getting them!

    I’m still painting upstairs and the Modwright amp is in UPS limbo right now. I’ll probably get these upstairs tomorrow and unpack them

    🥳 Congratulations! 🙌

    Looking forward to hearing your impressions.

    I’m interested in these too, but won’t buy until I actually get to listen to them at the local dealer (who also carries some Polk, so I’ll be able to compare with Reserve or Legend as well).
    Alea jacta est!

    Upscale Audio.

    https://upscaleaudio.com/

    There are many in the area, obviously, but this place stocks all of my favorite brands, so I get to try out a full system — from A to Z —that way. Also, one of my kids has to go to the nearby airfield for flying lessons.

    I’m not going to spend anything north of $2K without listening first. There are just too many variables to consider.
    Alea jacta est!

    Lugged one of these behemoths upstairs by myself today. The other one will wait until tomorrow so my wife can help me. I don’t think I did any permanent damage to my back today, but I don’t want to push it.

    It’s certainly not a small speaker, the LSIMs were big but this has more depth and considerably more width. About a foot off the back wall and about two feet off the side “bench” is about all I can do. Not ideal but I’m not too worried about it.

    Are they brand new or demo units with some time on them?

    They are used. Bought them from Precision A/V in Chicago. Focal dealer, original purchaser traded them in on something higher end. Saved quite a lot of money over buying them new

    Cool, presumably at least you won't have to log as much time with them then before they open up.

    I'm impressed you could stop yourself after one speaker. I would have destroyed my back just to hear the pair. I have no self control.
