Thanks, they also have tweeter dB toggle and a BSC toggle, which is very important for my setup. My speakers must sit in right in the wall, flush with my screen.
Not all my speakers can do that though so some will sit out with proper clearnance just for comparisons.
They are small and I dont expect low end from them, I have a full custom Bass setup for everything under 120 Hz.
Hey penngray........it's been almost two weeks. Have you had a chance to listen to the emotiva's yet?

Sorry guys, two golf trips, one business trip and now a wife enforced "house arrest"
I did get the testing done between all the speakers, Its been a week though now and I havent had time to post results since I have been back trying to get my HTRoom done.
NOTE: I have found out that Im not a fussy audio guy, I dont pick apart speakers like others do on here and I have found that I love lots of different types of speakers but I do have my favorites.
Salk HTS did very well, hard to say which was better but ERM-1s are 1/3 the price tag!!
Ascend HTM200s are just to damn small, they are simply satellite speakers.
RB81s....my good old rock-n-roll speakers dont fit the HTRoom.
I really enjoy the ERM-1s, I had some friends over, including my wife and we kept swapping the Salks and the ERMs (the only two I felt worry to continuously test). No one else knew the price tags at all, no one else even know anything about speakers so I thought it was good to have their ears.
The differences were sutle, its hard to describe those differences both had great detail and crisp highs in my opinion. I wanted to make sure my mids and highs were good because I have a bass system that handles the lows and the really low stuff, my crossover is at 120Hz.
The ERM-1s will work very well in a Cabinet, they have toggles on the back to switch tweeter dB, etc.
For their price tag I was impressed, I havent been this impressed since I bought my AV123 rockets (I have RS450s in the family room)
Im keeping the ERM-1s and what I think is some of the best dipole surrounds around period ERD-1s.

Perhaps I missed it, but are these babies sealed or ported? I'm guessing sealed due to the tuning options and steep roll off @80, but could someone confirm? Also, any info on rumored product launches like towers and a "subwoofer system" to pass on? While I was never a huge fan of their electronics, I really like where they're going with their speakers. Their design goals seem to be very well thought out from a practical, real-world POV.
