I am the second owner of these, the flagship model from Soliloquy and the masterpiece of Phil Jones. These are a 3 way, quasi-five way speaker system with 3-6.5" woofers mounted on a 3/8 inch thick aluminum wave launch plate and are rear ported. Bass is detailed and robust, diving down into the low 20s (-2 db@ 22 Hz.) Bass section is sealed internally from the other drivers which also have their own sealed chambers.
The upper mids are handled by a proprietary 2 inch domed driver while the highs are reproduced by an excellent and very expensive proprietary, silk domed, one inch tweeter.
These are very heavy cabinets. (130 lbs.) Front baffle is 2" MDF while the sides and rear are 1". Cabinets are mounted on a heavy cast iron bottom plate with outboard floor spikes.
Bandwidth is a true 20-40KHz. Sensitivity is 92 db/watt/meter Speaker terminals are bi-wired. Gold jumpers included.
I have run these loudspeakers with as little as 8 watts/side, tube and as much as 500 watts/side solid-state. They are a relatively easy load with a minimum impedance of 6 ohms. There was an excellent review at 'Enjoy the music' by Todd Warnke
www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0102/soliloquy.htm (Jan. 2002)
To sum up; these loudspeakers thrive in a large room as their massive bass output will tend to overload a smallish room. My room is 20 by 12.5 with a low ceiling so it is not an optimum situation. The fact that I have 2 other pair of floorstanders which are smaller and 'work' the room better has coerced me into finally parting with these beautiful loudspeakers.
One would be hard pressed to find a better loudspeaker pair on this planet at the asking price. IMHO
