review I have seen. I will watch for more.
Better yet....have any been sold to the Chicago area where I can audition them?
My arrangement is similar to Bob's pic in post 579, with my TV on a coffee table between the R/L speakers. Will the TV block too much of the reflected sound since it is about 12" from the wall with only 12" between my present speakers and the edge of the TV?
Sorry, I can't post pics until I make 5 posts
When I get serious about making a purchase, I will email Dennis for his opinion.
Hey thanks Bob. The picture showing the top cabinet atop the bottom was the one I wanted.
Hey M S, I think Dennis mentioned the Phillys weren't particular in their placement against the wall with the open back. Remember mentioning that to him and I am pretty sure that was his response. I was trying to locate the email, but can't find it.
He will correct me if I am wrong.
"Well, let's see if I have a good answer. The upper module is about one foot shorter than the bass module (the back of the upper cabinet is actually sloped, so the distance varies from 10" to 13"). That means you could slam the bass cabinet smack against a wall and still leave some breathing room for the rear wave. That's not optimal, but it wouldn't be a show stopper either. You would still get some added depth and ambiance from the backwave. I have my bass cabinets about 1.5 ft from the rear wall, and that's plenty. I would also note that the termination of the transmission line is on top of the bass cabinet, so placing the rear of the cabinet against or near a wall won't choke it off or cause boominess."

That port looks remarkably small for the size of the cabinet....guess I have to remember it's an 8" woofer.
I still wonder how much reflected sound will be trapped behind the TV.
I will make some measurements and see how the 2's will fit my space.

I am not planning to do a full comparison as I don’t think that it would be fair. There is too much of a quality/price difference to do that. As an example, I wouldn’t think comparison of the museum finish of the SoundScapes to the finish of the Twos. The Twos have a great finish for a $2k pair of speakers but not for a $12k class of speaker. It would be unfair to ding the Twos for only having an excellent finish.
I know you and others want some comparison. The SoundScapes are big boys and can take care of themselves. I will tell everything that I like better about the Twos.

Bob, where are the Philharmonic 2 plates?
