Hello everyone,

ok ok, so the electronics are still not done on the Grand. Therefore this is a small post, but rest assured its well underway. I moved to SET amps and here is a pic of how it currently looks. :D Before questions on the amps come up, the impedances of the drivers are 2.4ohms (Tweeter), 3.8ohms (Midrange), 2.7ohms (Woofer( and 2.8ohms (Subwoofer)

For sure!
These speakers aren't too common and any info from an owner of these gems are appreciated. 8-)
