I don't recall the rationale they gave but he was pretty firm about it. Nor do I recall which other speaker they recommended. But I wasn't interested. I may go back to them (and maybe you can as well) and ask again why your recommended speaker is not a great solution. I would be much more it for it's ability to blend into the room versus those monsters I am using.What rationale did they use to say they wouldn't be a good solution? I would think the dual-tweeter version, setup in bipole mode, would have wide dispersion and the ability to cover multiple rows. Were they concerned about output, and an inability to keep up with the Plat's?
What other direction did they push you in... the in-ceiling Silver Monitors with the slanted baffle?
