You certainly don't get great panning with a CC3 with large magenpan fronts, but it is much smoother than with non maggies, cause it still has that maggie sound! My mixture is very eclectic, since I...

They didn't sound like the 3.6 or the 1.6, I can't wait to hear them again. I think they are Special, but we'll see when they get to the dealers. If I had the cash I'd pre-order now.
