I sold the WP/7's and now Maxx 3's are in the fronts. The Maxx 3's are perfect in my room. I still own the Sophia's!
    Nice do you listen to multichannel classical?

    Hi Bonzo, Classical is what got me into multi channel. I didn't like the popular mixes as they were mixed with instruments in all of the speakers which took me back to 4 channel discrete days. I was curious, so I purchased one of the 2L discs, and then two DTS discs Shostakovich and Wagner. The 2L disc does have some tracks with surround instruments but actually recorded that way and not mixed post production.

    Cool...thought that would be the case. Congrats, I heard a Wilson duetta MCH once in a 15 ft room that sounded fantastic on classical

    A replacement tweeter is a swap out and requires a speaker serial number so that we can match them. Just out of curiosity what color is the cup on the rear of the motor?
    I'm out of town and will let you know the color when I return in a week. My concern is that I certainly do not want to get my dealer in trouble for doing me a "favor". Any comment on the sourcing being SB Acoustics and not Scan Speak as commonly thought?

    The basic tweeters from which we build the Convergent Synergy Tweeters are definitely not from SB Acoustics.
