Hey Swampfox.... I am Very Very happy with the Mal-X's.... aside from the 1 that is giving me some high spl slapping noise.... so for right now at medium to loud volume they are extremely tight and clean.
They seem to be breaking in quite nicely and just get better with time... I'm just frustrated with being extremely unlucky, where no- else seems to have had any issues with the drivers at all. Just wish I could get past this hurdle of having issues. At least they are only prevalent under extreme SPL. Anyways, for output, musicality - absolutely smooth and even SPL across the entire range of its capabilities - the Mal-X's have really proven themselves to me. I could easily live with these drivers in my HT for a long time to come.
I have been poising myself to upgrade to TC LMS's but I'll really have to weigh that option with the price tag that comes with it, for the drivers as well as the amps that it takes to play along... So for now, I'm going to start concentrating on other area's.
Ultimately, I have a new dedicated Pre-Amp on the way to finally replace my Pioneer receivers to further upgrade my HT system. So I finally took a leap after 2 years of waiting for HDMI to settle down, processing power to get up to par with codecs and scaling, and I also have other issues to deal with in that room like treatments, carpet... So at some point I have to move along....
