    46Hz is pretty respectable bass for a bookie of that size. And I like the fact that the highs have sparkle and detail but no harshness because that's what really sets me off. So that's good to see.

    Now, I just need to hear some. lol

    Sounds like a possibility for Dskip?

    The compact 7es-3 is actually pretty large as monitors go. That's a "nominal" 8" mid bass driver.

    The bass the Compact 7es3's produce is rich and detailed, though some do add in a subwoofer for additional kick I have never found wanting. Even when the speakers were in my 13x18 family room.

    Hey Steve, any tricks for getting the grills off? (For those of you unaware, Harbeth grills are notoriously tight fitting)

    Mark, I know you specifically asked Steve the question, but here's how I (safely) remove Harbeth grills:

    Procure an old hard drive. Take it apart. Use the little magnet that's inside. BOOM. You now have a small, portable, Harbeth-grill remover.

    Mark,
    Seans trick sounds cool; I just slowly start at one corner and work my way around. They don't come off very often.

    Rich,

    You are always welcome to move to the Sunny Cali if you grow tired of IL windy cold weathers. :P

    Or you can always move to some island near N.Y to catch an Ocean breeze while listening to some nice tunes at the same time. :D

    One thing I like about DIY'ing speakers is that it stops my speaker buying addiction. It only started me on the speaker driver buying addiction.

    May be the same thing but with some differences? Let's ask Mike! lol
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    If only..... I'm confident I could have built cabinets, struggled through the xovers (have the Dayton OmniMic V2), but know I could never match the finish quality of what I got. I'm really happy right now.

    I've got out a half dozen dead hard drives awaiting a free computer recycle drop off day. I think I can find a drive magnet! FYI, I owe you a call next week during spring break.

    I almost picked up a vintage pair for a few hundred a while back. With the purchase of the new car, I'm regretfully out of the speaker market. It might've been cheaper just to buy a new car in the long run anyways.
