Yes, impressive looking. ..So much so that I wonder how much their appearance affects what people hear. I don't doubt those huge drivers facilitate greater SPL's, and perhaps eliminate the need for subwoofers, but are those speakers any more linear than a far more modest speaker? ..When playing at 85 db, how much better do they sound than any one of a boatload of other well designed speakers that cost less than $5-6 K? It's a fact that what we hear can be affected by what we see, and when what we see looks like THAT, it's going to be hard for many audio buffs to not be impressed.
