    Yep, those are some sleek looking speakers for sure. I too dig the carbon fiber, they would have been a great addition and a show stopper if I'd had a pair of those set up in my pits when I was racing :smile:

    So, out of curiosity I looked those speakers up to peak under the hood, especially when I read in the OP's post that they sound better than his B&W's....(I'm like, what??) And now, after cruising through the website, all I want to do is throw my set up in the trash.

    Nice score Joey

    I will see if I need to sell the mini or move them to the game room
    Not sure it’ll get a lot of use there though

    Don’t get me wrong
    There are tracks where the BW may smoke the m2

    But that’s not how it’s supposed to be

    The same trait that heightens the experience w some tracks also detracts from others

    Fascinating, this audio journey of yours. Congrats man! I am a little hazy with your audio room upstairs since I was there some time ago. I would take the crate and create a sliding barn door to your audio room. Just swap out the crate barn door as you move on to others. Haha

    Regards,
