to make a long story short JNTAR's LOTUS mids crapped out a while back. (one reads like 49 ohms and the other is messed up too)
one was thrown away and the other was destroyed in a much more fun way. :naughty:

onto the carnage.

They look pretty and sound decent, but quality isnt up to my standards and I still believe that several cheaper speakers sound better to my ears.

A set of coustic mids that i currently run,
The lower end Diamonds I heard,
Lower end rainbows
Bravox's midbass set (unsure of the model, I helped install them in a mini cooper months ago)
The extremi's can sound as good with a 2khz x-over setting
poly mids sound decent and cost a fraction of the price, just have to watch for the tinsel slap
Morel makes good stuff, unsure on price comparisons
and my all time fav the DYNaudio MW160 (I heard these in an SQ car that was at finals) Still dont know the price.

Non functionning audio gear always has to be broken, theres just no way around it.

Looks like you guys had a good built day.

Sometimes I feel like doing that to my Lotus Reference components too!!! They are difficult speakers to use.

I have pretty much given up on these fXXXing speakers. Either they have serious design faults or quality control problems.

i've NEVER had any serious issues with any of my lotus'. and i've owned all 4 speakers from their lotus line. i guess you guys got unlucky. not only that i haven't even read of any issues in any of the forums.

My boy had some lead slapping issues with his, since has moved onto Dayton rs180's. I cant say I have any complaints about the CW21's though.

Mine just liked to randomly read 4 to 49ohms. When it read 49 ohms they would cut in and out and just ****...First the driver side then the passenger side.

Put the extremis in...never had a problem...ever.
