listening impressions:

i am very impressed with the off-axis response of the Status tweeters - better than any dome tweeter i've used in that location. I was very happy with them flush mounted like you see in the pics.

the woofers had good midbass response and overall, were very nice to listen to. The neo magnets allow for shallow mounting.

i could honestly stick with these and by happy for a long time.

I was less impressed with playing them through the passive crossovers and I have heard of others having issues with the passive crossovers failing from sustained high power. Also, given my mounting locations, the crossovers didn't make as much sense. I always planned on running them active but chose passive just to get impressions. when tweeters and woofers are mounted side-by-side, the passive crossovers are just fine. ran active, they were great.

so why sell them?

I want a set of Hertz Mille's instead. Plain and simple, i think the Mille's are the best sounding speakers i've heard. I want to represent my local shop and will buy from them.

What can the tweets and mids handle individually when ran active?

On the midrange-woofer-side the SV series uses very high quality cones made from a special polypropylene composite and driven by edge-wound 1"/25 mm voice coils. The two-piece loudspeaker baskets made exclusively of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic compo-site also provides a sophisticated heat-sink system with special ventilation pole-pieces, silver painted panels and metal magnet covers for optimum cooling of the magnet system.

GM designed these so the rated power is sustained level, not what they can handle for one second before failure.

Oh I want these, but I am not sure if I want to spend the cash yet. I think you having purchased them speaks for the quality alone.

i got a good deal on them since the shop was closing. i am not too concerned if they don't sell. i do love the Mille's but these are still good speakers. I should just look for the matching 4" and call it a day.

I have heard them before they are nice they are made by the original owners of MB Quart. These are the true speakers that should have the MB name but tat was a brand for us German Maestro was what they went by in europe. Ive been looking to see if anyone had some yet I'd love to get em but low on cash

funny how it looks like the original mb quart designers/engineers went and started their own company after getting all that paper from maxxsonics

Great set of speakers. I recently installed the SV 6509s and they sound amazing to my ears.
