    Hardly. Have you heard the ALS40 Mike. They have an even fruitier bottom end than the pure transmission line IMFs.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    As per the advice above, I sold these because they were overpowering my living room, which whilst not massive, is not tiny either.
    Making the whole room shake is quite funny, but not really hifi.
    I was glad to see that they worked much better in Macca's larger room.

    That seems the general consensus, mind you I do like to turn the wick up just a tad ( much to my daughters disgust) most days.

    I think I've been given approval to go for something around the size of Harbeth 30's so the IMF's would be binned the minute they came through the door.

    Now on the lookout for standmounts around 46cm x 28 x 28 or thereabouts, anything bigger and I'm pushing it

    You know guys, ever since I heard a pair of TDL Studio 1's around 1994 I wanted a pair but things moved on. I was offered a pair of the Studio 1m's but sadly I was a long way from them at the time with other commitments. So unfortunately I never got to own them but I adored their bass extension.

    God knows what the neighbours made of them; mind you the JM labs I have now are not bass shy, either.

    Thing is I'm looking for something to make the bass thunder but still retain great treble, is that possible is a speaker 18" tall and only 10-12" wide?

    Even at that size the boss is going to take some convincing lol
