    There is already some grooves on the panels for that purpose. We can see them on the inner face of the left panel. So I doubt that it is for this reason. But maybe.

    I personally like jbl monitors specifically lsr 305. It is worth checking out.

    I've owned the M2 speakers for 1½ years and have been driving them with a BSS Soundweb and Crown CTs1200 amplifiers (Class AB+B).

    I recently bought 3 Crown MacroTech 5000i to replace the CTs1200 as I wanted to try out the amps "designed" for the M2s. New amps are Class-I (I.e. switching amp)

    My listening initial impressions so far (not scientific tests):
    - Better: New amps sound more dynamic and micro details are more noticable.
    - Better: Bass sounds improved. Tighter, punchier and more control
    - Worse: Mids sounds more "stuffy"/reserved. Difficult to describe - but doesn't sound like an improvement unfortunately :/
    - Same: Highs seem unchanged

    Do any of you have experience with Macrotech I's as fullrange? I've measured before and after and they measure 100% identical.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the M2's are spec'd for use with the Itech series amps which use BSS DSP. The Macrotech line uses DBX processing right?

    I haven't heard my M2s with the Itech series amps but would like to. I run mine as you do, with a BSS processor and Class AB amps (300WPC).

    No, macrotechs are itechs without any DSP.

    M2 is, in their marketing material, designed for either itechs or BSS Soundweb with Macrotech. I just started using the latter.

    I'm using Crown DCI 2|1250N's on my M2's, probably the best speakers I've ever heard and owned, but not heard them with separate DSP and Amps so I can't comment. Will say the drivecore network install amps are fantastic, the fan's switch on and off but are really quiet, you only really hear them when there's no content playing.

    I am looking for some info regarding a small detail of the baffle, namely the baffle inset compared to the 45° sides:

    Well this sure was surprising!

    I just measured both of my speakers, and the measurements are quite diverse. I measured the lips at all 4 corners of each speaker. The minimum was 1.99mm and the maximum was 4,28mm!

    The corner where the grill is most flush with the beveled edge is the one with the 4,28mm lip, The speakers are so dark though that these and other factory imperfections are not noticeable.

    I hope this helps POS
