I also want to really point out that the 1099 isn't a bad speaker. Given we were switching from 1 relatively high end speaker to another if you took any single one of them on their own and configured...

No it wasn't at reference with the exception of a quick test at the very end, I believe we were in the range of -10. As we approached reference the 1099 was even harsher compared to the other...

That was an original CX-15 with a different crossover, it was actually a pretty good sounding speaker. I should know, I had 3 :)

OMG don't tell me that. Just bought 2 FTW's. I could put the 21's in the back and the 24's in the front.

We weren't running reference either and we were sitting a little over 13 feet away i believe. The lower tuning of the f15 doesn't matter as much because all the speakers were crossed over to subs...

It has been said a number of times to various degrees that the 1099 isn't a terrible speaker or anything. It was just matched up against some very good speakers and it would be hard not to judge...

I don't think that has ever been done before has it? Multiple hidden speakers, unknown what you're even testing in the first place. Sounds like a Harman test.

I would also like to point out that in round 1 with what was later shown to be the Danleys, they sounded so sooooo good to me. Like "i want whatever speaker that is" good.

I don't think anyone at the GTG considered any of the speakers bad, in fact i'd personally argue the opposite. All 4 speakers that were tested the main method for differentiating seemed to be picking...

Don't worry, I can ruin you anytime you want. You're less than 30 minutes away from my cat 8's. I upgraded from the polks (RTiA7's) a long time ago :)
