@TLS Guy Thank you, I appreciate the feedback! :) \n\nAnother thing that's easy to dismiss as insignificant is the 2.5-way design. On the surface it would make sense to think that you could just high pass any bookshelf speaker out there, and you'd get basically this speaker. But the fact is that due to the 2.5-way design, this speaker has TWO midbass drivers in an extremely compact design. \n\nThis means the SBS.1 will play louder and cleaner than basically any 2-way (or even 3-way) bookshelf speaker out there, even if they were to be high passed. This is due to the fact that you have double the capacity in the midbass range, which will be the limiting factor in most speakers.
