@CptSpig Nice, love the setup too.

Question how would you say the 708's compare to the 705's? as i am planning to get some 705i's to use later for wides and front heights? how far are they in your room to your MLP?

Do you listen loud like at or close to reference?

Thanks!

The HF drivers are identical with reference to both speakers. The 8" LF driver of the 708i peaks at about 30Hz and the 5" driver of the 705i peaks at about 50 Hz. With my crossover set to 80Hz with the subs picking up the LF it's really a moot point. My furthest speaker is 15' to the MLP. I have a Crown DCi 8|300n amp which has level adjustment for all speakers. This allows me to balance all for the speaker levels before calibration. I have had the system to -10 from reference and the SPL meter shows 103db with plenty of head room. 103db is very loud in my room. These speakers will match your M2's HF very well. I am very happy with my system. Thanks for the questions.

Thanks!

I just got a Crown DCi 8|300n too, that is why i am asking. i should get it in a few days. deal was too good to pass!!

Honestly will be in storage for a while till my new house, but as amps don't change a lot over time and i already have two DCI/N amps so i thought i would get a third matching one.
