Hi All

I am not looking for a debate as to which are better, I am simply curious as to what people in the builder forum have actually used in their dedicated spaces.

So, please let me know.

And since I know most people probably have some sort of bookshelf for their surrounds, for the purposes of this poll, only include your LR mains

Bookshelves - well, they're 27.5 h x 17.5 w x 16.75 d, so I guess more like monkey coffins.

Essentially towers, as they're Seaton Cat12C mains, on the integrated stand. They're 38" tall, without the lower section.

These aren't mine, however here's an image from a previous shootout GTG thread;
