This thread can go on for years. Is there a point to it?

Theyd be up there IMO, but not worth the price tag.

Theyre only $10K ;)

My number 1....with out a doubt...the Ring Rev and Audio Technologies combo..nothing...I mean nothing comes close...

second would be the Genesis/Scan ...a **** fine set...tonally nothing beats it except the above set

third would be the Rainbow Ref set....another set that's hard to beat..the Cal30 tweeter is insane

4th and 5th could go both ways for me the SEAS or Dyns...both have their faults...both have their strengths

Do the focal BE's make it anywhere close to your top 5? And what about horns?:D

****it...I knew I forgot something...Focal Be's would be 2.5 :) ...with the 3w2 being hands down the finest 3 period and only second to the scan 4 tonaly...the tweeter is by far the best they have ever made...and hte midbass is very good but not incredible...

and horns...most of the team ID elite guys are real close friends of mine...but they all know that I hate horns...HATE!!!!! even more so than the L3's

$12000 for speakers is just plain stupid!! Nobody can convince me in believing they sound any better then the Profi's....

though the profi's are nice...they aren't the end all be all....and if after listening to a properly setup system with the comps I mentioned...and you can't hear the difference then I would find a new hobby

I'm sorry but NO you can't hear a difference....I've heard them and wasn't impressed.. I just love the famous "properly setup system" to justify a purchase....LOL

Yes, I have the Plats, couldn't pass up the deal... I'm going to be selling them soon and heading to the Profi's and calling it a day!
