I would be willing to bet not very many. This just goes to show once again that Tom is trying to be transparent and making an effort to help people make a decision that is right for them. Much like when you ask him about a Triax and he tells you that an XV15 would be more than enough for your setup. Kudo's to you Tom.
I am more inclined to be less perturbed in dealing with ShadyJ comments. I know he has very limited or any empirical data on his own regarding testing or measuring drivers/subs.
I did find Basso's comments more unsettling . His chomping at the bit to get his digs in at TV whenever...he can. I personally don't give a rats a$$ what he has brought to the table in all his years of service here as a member....there are plenty of others here with as much knowledge or expertise and more tact that don't stoop to his level and bring up saved dialogue/conversation from 2,3,5 or 10 + years ago...
I like this forum but its not my personal favorite hang-out but I don't make it a habit in getting banned just because somebody is acting on the same level as a grade school kid.
As for Tom & Jim....they're nothing but up front and class gents. I wish, I could of had more time on my visit there to meet TV...but like he explained to me with a email exchange... he had to stop by his Dad's with some groceries and I just missed him by 10 mins or so ...I do plan on making another trip back one day...
