I paid about $8 for a pair of black stretchy "body pillow" cases, think soft tee-shirt fabric, in 1998.

They fit over my panel quite well, and I rarely take them off.

I'll be back later...

Interesting idea! Wonder if it attenuates the highs a bit? Probably not enough to matter... That also lets you pull them off and wash them now and then. And I suppose they come in assorted colors to match every decor...

I haven't seen a spec sheet yet, just the press release saying 22" x 48" ESL panel, 12" front-firing and 15" rear-firing woofers. Claimed response down to 23 Hz. So yeah, it's big. Entering SoundLabs territory...
Well, I used to be 6', but now that I am in my mid 50's, I am probably 5'-11.5"

Yeah, same here... Might have lost a full inch, though, in my case.

Either way, those are some big speakers! Monolith size (anybody remember those?)

Yep. Big speakers seem to be making somewhat of a come back, at least here on AVS. Though I do hang out a lot in the DIY threads. My speakers are big. An 18, two 12's and a horn loaded AMT tweeter in each main. Center will be the same, as soon as I find time to rebuild four boxes. I run them down to 40hz. I use a similar tweeter to what is in the ML motion series.

I recently picked up a pair of LX16's and a mInt through Wyred4Sound. Added a Dynamo 300 sub. Wow. Admittedly, they are the best quality gear I've owned thus far, and I'm totally blown away by the sound quality. I'm hearing details in music that I've only barely heard before.

I'm enthused to find someplace to demo the Motion 40's, a 30 and set up a 3.1 system for light TV, but mostly music.

The Motion 40s and 30 work great together ... I couldn't be happier with mine. Like most everyone, I get "upgrade-itis" with my audio gear, but it's never in regards to my ML Motion speakers ... they're keepers :-)
