Finally have my HPM 100's the way they should be after some shipping damage. Shipping
speakers that far, that weigh 70lbs apiece, not a good combo! After hooking everything
up, doing the SPL thing, these speakers blow away any vintage monitor I've heard,
sorry JBL L100/4311 and yamaha NS-10M, and new stuff too. Good image, tight bass
response, soaring highs, the ultimate vintage rock speaker. While others do 1 or 2
things well, these do it all. I was'nt sure about buying a monitor type speaker from
japan, boy, was I wrong. If you ever see a pair, listen to them, you won't forget it!

The new crossovers solved your problem I guess.:cornut:

Yes, and a 12" driver with a toasted voice coil. The seller sent both overnight, which was
a pretty straight up thing to do, not everyone's a rip off I guess. I noticed the internal wiring
was just so, so and new caps are gonna happen this week, but, damn, these things
kick ass.
