    Alive. They are very open and dynamic.

    If anyone is seriously interested, I still have the matching HF drivers and crossovers specific to the system. They were originally intended for use as studio monitors, long time ago. These are widely used for that purpose because they are so free of color.

    Re: ETON Hexacone Midbass

    I think I like this driver, but the specs kinda scare me. How did you have these mounted? I would like them free air in a door, but that QTS looks like they want a box? Last question, how low can you xover these?
