    Hi Russ,

    Do you happen to know, or can you find out, what the dimensions are for the M707 and M705?

    Thanks.

    Well if Polk insists that the truth of what it takes to get the best out of the LSIMs s/b told up front BEFORE the speakers leave the store that would solve the problem.

    Like anyone that bought a < 400 AVR and considers that "high-end" (which most people that spend that amount of money would), do you think they'll believe it when they're told that their dinky AVR will make the speakers sound strangled?

    Does anyone know what the impedances are going to be like, or the efficiency?

    Is the mid tweeter on the top binding post with the subs on the bottom, or is it tweeter only on the top and the mids/sub on the bottom? It looks to me like the subs are separate?

    4 ohm, ~90db, the top section is isolated and the same in all models, the woofers are on a separate board.

    The 90db helps, but I wish the ohm rating was 8. I prefer the 4ohm myself, but we all know that the sales people are going to push them for use with a receiver I do seriously want to get my ears on them. They look fantastic!
    Cheers

    Hi,

    For those like me who are concerned about space constraints, here are the dimensions of the floor-standing models.

    Here are the measurements:

    LSiM707
    9 1/2" x 50 13/16" x 18 7/16"
    24.1 cm x 129.1 cm x 46.8 cm

    LSiM705
    8 5/16" x 47" x 14 3/8"
    21.1 cm x 119.4 cm x 36.5 cm

    I think 6-ohm would be a nice happy medium. AVR-compatible, yet still beneficial with an amplifier. The 90dB will be a nice relief though!

    I noticed that the drivers are screwed from the inside will that make it harder for any upgrades down the line? Must say it's a very clean front baffel.

    The problem is finding quality drivers that are 6-8ohm. You would also loose a few dB of efficiency.

    No they're not. ;)

    Nominal impedance and efficiency (sensitivity) are inversely proportional?
