Have you done any polar measurements on the 1099 you can post (or if you already did, can you give a link)? I have to figure out rear channels for my setup at some point, Synergies are a...

I can concur on the new HF driver, remarkable little thing. It's about the smoothest HF response I've seen from a cd, when on the SEOS15. Smoother than most domes even.
