Understand the hassles with all that. Are you using the Scan 22W/8851T, 8 ohm woofer then? I'm listening to the BMRs right now I'm borrowing from KEW, these are the actual units that Erin tested recently. The old PE cabs are beautiful, and match my entertainment center perfectly. They sound great! Perhaps a bit bright for my odd ears, but super clean and distortion free! Imaging is remarkable. I suspect the extra bass the bigger SS bring would make me happier in the Tower version. Would you indeed be willing to share the Tower schematics? That would be great! Perhaps enclosure volume and port dia. and length too? I'll just build a rectangular box, my woodworking skills don't extend to curved cabinets!Right woofer--wrong impedance. I'm using the 8-ohm version, which is only 1 dB less sensitive and makes crossover much easier. The main cost difference over the BMR monitor would be the cabinet cost, including manufacturing cost and shipping cost from Over There. Pricing is not set, nor is cabinet finish. The tower would be intended primarily for the domestic market, and we would not be walking a tightrope between finish tones that appeal to both sides of the Pacific. I personally would favor a dark, rich brown with something this large. As for kits, I'm kind of down on them. There are too many quality control issues that are difficult to control. But I would probably be willing to share the crossover schematics withr those willing and able to take something like this on.
