So I have searched high and low for more information and opinions on these behemoths.
To not much avail.
The only solid info I can find is that they were made by/with Polk and designed by an Infinity engineer.
They have in each speaker a pair of 10" subs (one powered by the internal 120w amp and one passive, powered by external amplification). They have 2 6.5" mid drivers...one firing forward and the other on the rear firing rearward.
There is also 1 4" front facing mid. And a pair of 1" tweeters...one facing each way.
Dimensions put them slightly bigger than my RTA-15TLs with a 20lb weight advantage.
I have read nothing but good things about them around the web. Some of the other models were good as well but didn't get the praise the flagship model did.
The reason I am posting this is I have an opportunity to pick up a pair for a SCREAMING deal. I made the mistake of lowballing the seller only to have him accept my lowball offer.
He says they are missing the grilles and the 2 10" dustcaps are dimpled on one but he says they sound fine.
Grilles are no biggie...I am crafty and handy with the wood workin' tools.
The dimpled dustcaps bother me from a perfectionist standpoint.
Other than the above, he says they have some normal wear and tear but look good from 5'+ away.
So my dilema is such...
I really dig them. They have a vibe about em that says "I am a badass". And they get pretty good reviews for both movies and music...which is what my living room system is all about.
I can sell my Monitor70 SIIs for more than what I would be paying for these easily.
But my wife insists if I do end up with the Eosones, I would definitely have to sell the Monitors.
What would you do?
I like big obnoxious but good sounding speakers. And being black makes them match the speakers they are replacing. I will also be able to shelve my 2 Klipsch Synergy subs (not that I don't like them but less gear to achieve the same result is always good).
