Have you emailed them? Sometimes they have datasheets even if it's not on their website. They may send it to you, it's worth a try if you haven't already.

Just received an email from them gave me info on teh tweeter being a silk dome which explains why I love its sound so much smile.gif. and basic specs 63-20khz but nothing specific, replied back asking for theiles if not I think I'm gonna be guessing on the boxes xD.
Right now I'm thinking about .5 cubic foot tuned to 53.2 hz built with .5 inch mdf (Don't need 3/4 inch shouldnt be flexing that much.

14heightx8widthx11depth
Seems to be a reasonably common sized box for single 6.5 inch mid bass speakers, Which I want a little extra low end out of it since I prefer to run them without my power hog bass amp turned on.
Any thoughts?

I'm surprised you didn't realize it was silk dome immediately :O they are very distinguishable both by looks, textile/feel, and even by how they sound. I like my BX5A's a LOT more than my much bigger advent 8" tower speakers, because OF the silk dome's. i hate plastic tweeters.

I'm just throwing this out there but in my opinion the membership list is lagging way too much.
I know jarble is doing his best and I respect that but it the list is months behind.
Perhaps someone else who is more active here can take over the list?

Im not even sure if my setup is construed as hifi yet anyway lol.

Crappy auzentech xfi hometheater hd sound card sending digital coax 24 bit 96kHz to my crappy NAD T751 receiver which has left and right pee out going to my m audio bx5a studio monitors. My center channel is an Anthony gallo nucleus speaker only for ht use watching blu rays. My rears are some advent 8" prodigy 2 towers. My sub is a velodyne ULD 18 which has the same acoustical output as a velodyne DD18.


I know, my setup is pretty trashy, especially for the $600'i paid for it. I doubt I'll even be included in the speaker club as a z5500 beats me out. In every possible way.

I have a pair of the M-Audio AV 40's

I finally decided to go with the M-Audio AV-40 and I have nothing but rave reviews. The sound is outstanding. I wanted to buy speakers for my home that would be worthy of the time I spent listening to them. Simply said, the sound is fantastic.

If you want a speaker system to powerfully throw music/gaming/movie sounds around you then get a 2.1 system with subwoofer, but if you are looking for clarity and brilliant reproduction, I highly recommend this system. Classical music, rock and techno all sound amazing.

My first test was Ravel's Bolero by the London Symphony Orchestra which is often cited as a great speaker test due to the range and low starting phase. The test was an unconditional success. From there I moved to Pink Floyd, Mindless Self Indulgence, Some Random Dubstep, T.E.R.A. Online music and on and on. Simply fantastic.

Finally, I want to address two of my biggest concerns going into this purchase. First, many reviewers hate the size and need for positioning of the AV-40 and I was a bit concerned. The speakers are big for a computer system but not nearly as large as I feared with the amount of reviews claiming they were beasts. However, as a friend said, good speakers are often not small.

If I get any time at the weekend I'll work backwards from the most recent posts and start updating the list, I can't promise anything though. If I do manage to get it up to date then I'll be happy to take over if Jarble doesn't mind (having 2 people doing it would be a nightmare)
