    The tweeter model number is the the same as in the 4312SE and 4312E. Midrange and woofer are indeed different.

    I hadn't noticed this photo until today. The sound system in This Is Spinal Tap seems to be one of the ones built and supplied by TFA Electrosound. Back in 1977 I worked at TFA Electrosound for a...

    The Beatles' version of "Twist and Shout" is the definitive version of that song, quite a bit better than the original.

    Cheap Trick's version of "Ain't That a Shame" is also better than the...

    True that. If you build the speaker with a passive crossover, even if you get every other detail 100% correct you won't have an M2. If you want M2 performance (or even close to it) you must go active...

    McCartney's "the worst bass player [Quincy Jones] had ever heard"?

    No matter how large your speakers, there's a simple cure for when they start to overpower your listening room: counter-clockwise rotation of the volume control.

    My opinion only: Salon's sound like a very good speaker; M2s sound like music, with no speaker intervening. YMMV. At this level you need to audition any candidates for yourself.

    10,000 hours is 3 hours a day, every single day, for over 9 years. (At 24 hours a day non-stop it's more than one year.) So no, 10,000 hours of burn-in is NOT required.
