Respectfully, Michael Zisserson put all of this to bed well over 2 years ago. He did a fantastic job with his independent measurements. His review (including his own detailed measurements) are directly linked to my site for all to see. He called it "95dB" and he specifically noted the "tuning frequency of the box was pushed below 20Hz". Can we please move on to a new topic...? Peace and Love!

Most of the big names follow the AES guidelines, they measure half-space anechoic. The only major exception is Klipsch, who might measure in room, but they really don't say. I don't blame them, every measurement I've seen done by accredited sources, like soundandvision, measures half space and their results are 4 to 6dB lower than what Klipsch claims.

His measurements were in room. I wouldn't call him an accredited source. He's an amateur who does reviews for stereo mojo. That's not stereophile, and he's no Kalman Rubinson. But at least he says up front that he measured in room.

A pressing issue that Tekton has is fulfilling the requests for the grills and anything else that was supposed to come with the speakers that were purchased. Those that have brought this up on AVS represent only some unknown fraction who've purchased from you. It's fine that you've posted on your website for people to contact you but if you've been keeping accurate records, then you already know who they are. It's your obligation to reach out to them determine what is required, set a time frame, and keep to it. Immediately. Tekton may well make fine speakers but the company's reputation for trustworthiness is in serious disrepair. Fix it.
