I have smoked glass on the tops of my M2 clones. The M2 height is perfect for plants and knick-knacks :rolleyes:

Now take the extra screws, paint them black, and replace the others. You know you have a black rattle can for just such emergencies.

Hard to find a consumer speaker to compare to a Fusion 8 simply because it does not run full range...it needs a subwoofer. $250-$500 speakers with wimpy bass simply do not sell...

Tux,

Have you had a chance to hear the JBL D2430K compression driver used in the M2 monitors and few others? Not cheap ($350-$400?) and hard to get but they do run down to 800Hz in the M2.

You are off to a nice start on the crossovers.

I've built several of the Zilch ewave combos over the years. I think they required more of the "Y" in DIY than some folks were willing to invest.

I have a pair of the JBL LSR305 for my PC. Much different look than the L8/L16. On a good day you can get them for $100 each but $150 seems to be the regular retail price.
