1st off thanks alot for the heads up on those SDA-CRS from C/L .They do look very tempting but now since I have this real desire to go after those Vandersteens I talked about plus they are not the bigger versions that most of you drool over I might look but probably not.
Now to my question. Forget a minute the DCM TIME FRAME 350s, they by themselves area totally different animal in terms of design and are quite happy w/ the imaging and sound stage so they will more than likely always be here.
What I do not understand is the comparison between my ADC 303AX and the Infinity SM112s which I still have not yet unloaded.The ADC AX has a very tight but clear sound sound w/ plenty of bass for a walnut cabinet of 24"x11"x13.It has a 10" woofer w/ butyl or cloth surround and I beleive a 3" tweeter closed box no ports and to me has a very east coast AR type of sound and it's a good speaker. Now the Infinity SM112 @ 30"x 13"X12 deep.It is a tower w/ a rear
port. Inside a 10" a 4" mid and a tweeter. Now for the comparing both w/ my own other pairs plus most of you already have a distaste for them and then after hearing much superior speakers what is wrong so w/ these. I knock on the back of cabinet and it's as hollow as the sound it emitts .(I might be be exaggerating a bit)So is it design,just inferior drivers or marketed for that dorm room basement party sound you guys talk about.As a side note by far they are the loudest speaker @ the same volume vs. any other pair I have.
