Monsters they are in size but I don't have that type of money to spend on them. The sales person at the time told me to get better sound, I would have to jump in the $30K area with Wilsons to better my 3.5R's. My Focals are not cheap, I have two different sets. The 1008Be upstairs, 1028Be's downstairs with the matching Electra Subwoofer. The bookshelf with stands ran me $5600.00. The towers were $9500.00. The sub was $4500.00. The rest are in ceiling Focals not cheap either but I like quality stuff. I also had B&W 802's with the VTL MB-450's sold those also. No desire to buy any speaker or upgrade, Focals are it for me. Plus wife is had enough of speaker, amp, pre-amps, processors..etc. funny thing is she thinks that stuff is like $200.00 a piece! Talking about Wilsons, find out whom they get most of the drivers from? I will give you a clue, it's Focal! Look it up. They just changed out the tweeters they used to get from Focal (inverted dome aluminum) to a new supplier. Focal makes everything in house. Speakers, cones, furniture, the whole thing. I am passionate about Porsche and Focal.
Sound components still there ....... ?

One is architecture guys ..

I just can't stand Dave Wilson and his snake oil rhetoric nature. Kind of a bull crap artist. Listen to that crap man!



Sound Components still there minus Wilson's don't know why. Guess they have to sell certain amount to be a dealer.

Wilson built an empire on hype with the iconic Watt/Puppy and duped many other makers to copy them, all while the deaf and dumb keep coming back for upgrades. Don't Porschephiles do that too? Upgrade that is. Gee so many Porsche's for sale everywhere --they must suck OTOH, since Porsche uses Bose, it must be the shiz!! I'm so confused. I better go roll a toobie. Bomp-she-bomp!!

Talking

Guess should cut the company some slack. At least it's an American company creating and maintaining jobs here. I should not be saying bad things about them. If I got a pair of Sophias I guess I could at least take them apart and use the Corian and make me a wet bar?
