That's too bad they didn't work out but if you are like me you don't mind too much - I'd rather really know how a speaker will do in my room instead of just wondering. Now you know for sure.

Any slight movements with the omnimic will give drastic changes above 10k to 20k. An inch in any direction and the graph would look much different above 10k on Gorilla's graph.
