    Try it, you wont lose anything at that price if you decide to get a different one later.

    Well, in 1990 I took over a store in the middle of nowhere that had had sales losses for 4 years, broke even my first month (Nov), then won a district wide sales contest for December with a 30% sales increase...... and they asked me to step down back to being an asst manager position in a store that I had left to take the manager position.

    I found out after the fact that the regional manager (and corporate in Texas) were pissed at me for running a profit in a store they were using to offset taxes due to the losses.

    I left soon afterwards.

    Oh well, their pay structure was a joke, even making a profit I was barely making more money as a manager (and driving 40 miles each way) than I was just being another sales person.

    The spec I haven't seen is the slope. Id assume it to be 12db, but with Optimus you never know.

    Dont assume it wont be noisy just because of an advertised spec. But I agree, for the price, its worth trying since you obviously aren't currently running active.
