Imagine, this thread getting bumped up! What timing! I didn't even know about this thread until tonight. Gonna be busy here in the next few weeks, me thinks.
I'm getting excited about these new speakers. I've been looking at new speakers for some time now. I like my Infinity IL40s. Great sounding speakers, especially when teamed up with a pair of IL30s for the fronts powered by 4 channels of my UPA-7. They sound incredible with the two 8" and two 6" drivers, makes for some very snappy mids and lows, drums are boom boom, right there. But four speakers just take up too much room. Besides, its time for something new. I've had these IL40s for 8 years!
I don't own cars or motorcycles that long!
.....after having bought a new pair of the ERD-1s, and with what my UPA-7 delivers, I am so impressed by both of them when I consider the money spent on them, I can't help but think the new Emo speakers will deliver the goods and then some. If what I have is any indication, I'd hazard to guess that the 6.3 and towers might deliver sound quality somewhere around twice what is available at retail prices.
I just hope we get someone to post some reviews on the 6.3 and 8.3 soon. Seeing as how they only started shipping this week, I should be patient, right?
