Customer service aside, Reaction is offering speakers that will (potentially) go head-to-head with JTR, Seaton, etc. at a fraction of the cost.
So yeah, I'm taking a chance... but I'm pretty confident my decision will turn out to be the right one
I am attaching a graph that was taken by Mark Pinske with the 5210 with an 8 ohm tweeter.
I did not post this one at first, because we were using a different port tuning, but now that we have dropped the tuning, we are pretty much using the same size cabinet and tuning as they did in their test box.
The graph is 1/3 octave smoothed. I don't have a graph for the 16 ohm tweeter, but it would show a little more laid back top end from 1k and higher. Jfrazi1 heard the 16 ohm tweeters.
I tend to like them because of the warmth but the 8 ohm is by no means "harsh".
We will be shipping the 8 ohm standard for a neutral response unless someone requests the 16 ohm specifically.

That does apply to 5.0 and 7.0 systems as well.
I am going to keep that code active beyond labor day, since there are some folks doing systems with the upcoming speakers as well as the CX-10.
