    The Dayton is actually front mount, with a 1.25 inch hole its simply press fit into place...http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=275-030

    **** good tweeter for the price...

    I have thousands of MP3s, this system really brought out the impurities, more so than the previous. I am going to start buying CDs and just converting them to FLAC or APE to play off my MP3 player (Cowon iaudio FTW) some songs are unbearable to listen too...Eventually I may make my own CD player and a DAC but I simply don't have the cash. Would rather upgrade the amp for now...

    Biggest downside of them is they aren't very efficient and lack in the low end dept.
    Because there is no low end department, much like all e-stats, planars and ribbons.

    Don't gotta tell me bout that lil guy. I've used probably 20-25 of them in various projects (including it's derivations in rear mount and 5/8" pressfit).

    1. Takes about 20 minutes to power on (no joke).

    2. Sometimes when I record shows in HD, the audio skips and cuts in and out. Usually it is just an occasional annoyance. BUT, once in a while it is so annoying it ruins the show. Usually happens when I have recorded House or something of the like that I really want to watch.

    3. About once a week I have to power it on and off (unplug no just power button) or it will say that I don't have access to channels.

    4. It get HOT!!! I had my Vinyl above it but had to move the Records because I didn't want them to warp.

    5. Random problems. Such as, PVR not working, pause being "unavailible", random audio problems, randomly changing my selected output from 1080i to 480i, just various other things.

    Wow, have you thought about sending it back to get another one? I haven't had any of those problems what so ever and have had it over 6 months now. Have two of them matter of fact with no problems as of now. The one I had problems with keep shutting on and off, but was just a bad box, so called them up, they came in and tried a couple different things and said the box is bad and put in new one and viola! No more problems.

    Also you know you just have to hold the button in to reboot it. Can even do it from your remote IIRC.

    I called once, and the lady had me reboot, and she told me that they all take that long to power on and off.

    NG has the same box as me and his takes forever to power on too.

    SO, who know...

    I take that back, I thought you were talking about rebooting. Powering completly off and then back on I have never had to do. I have only had to reboot mine from time to time.

    Must just be a luck of the draw or something. Cause I had a bad box and they replaced it and I haven't had any problems with mine in quite sometime.

    I do have a question though. Can someone explain to me why 2 out of 4 of my HD movie channels get all distorted like when a fast action scene happens? Happens on one showtime and 1 HBO HD channel, but not on the others or any other HD tier I have. Find that strange. Could that be something with the box? Cause it don't do it on my Sony, just my Westinghouse, but all the other channels are fine. So I doubt it would be the TV. Any ideas?
