thanks. my elite has adjustable xover on the fly. right now with the m70 it is set to 80. just curious about your observations on a crossover point on the 71's which i believe you had said were very close or the replacement to the 31. the reason being in is i just relaized that i had not calibrated my x-sub correctly and after calibrating to reference it seems lke a HELL of alot of difference in sound volume wise. also seems to have really brought out the whole dynamic range of the entire system and really boosted the volume. i like the volume increase but am undecided on the amount of bass i am getting. it is fine on a dialogue driven movie but, if i want to watch say "casino royale" for instance, the LFE effects are tremendous. so much so that i get the "isn't that a bit loud?" comments from the other 1/2. usually i hate that question from her but, right now she may be right.
i either need to adjust to the proper calibration with my ears OR bump it down a bit. that being said- the little x-sub really does put out a lot of clean sound- it's almost shocking actually. and they do blend well with the right sub calibraton. and just think i've got another on preorder
glad to see you are happy with the m70 as well. i am very impressed with them and believe that they are worth the original MSRP of $199 let alone the measley price of $69. as mentioned i have 2 pair of them and will keep one pair in the rear in my 7.1. the other pair- which are now my mains- will be going in my pc room and hooked up to my PC. i have already tried this with my PC and i have to say the sound compared to my old logitech satellites is incredible. i also agree that they are HANDS down the best speaker in the $100 range, and even a bit higher. i have heartily recommended them in many threads but, i guess because of name recognition they don't get a chance. the m31 will be here monday!
if you get or have already heard the x-series as compared to the mission lines- please post back with your impressions. this is somehing i was talking about with a friend recently and would be very curious to hear some input on. i wanted to know the differences especially since i have an x-sub (soon to be dual x-subs) and they blend very well. i'd like to see if the x series and the mission have ANY similarities.
