"The Matrix 801 Monitor is a large loudspeaker, employing a massive, front-vented cabinet housing the low-frequency driver and crossover network, with a separate fibercrete head housing the midrange driver (the tweeter is mounted in free field above) placed directly above the bass cabinet. The midrange/tweeter head is electrically connected with the lower cabinet via a short umbilical and an XLR connector, and is secured by a very long bolt that runs completely through the head, down into the bass enclosure.

Shipping notes: Shipping is buyers expense. I do not have the original boxes. I do have a pair of shipping crates that I have used that insure their safe delivery. However, this crates weigh in at 80lbs each (total w crate is 190lbs each). Shipping would have to be done via freight (UPS, FedEx have a 150 lb limit). To the East cost I have estimates of about $900.00 via freight. Local pickup is advised. I dropped my price to $1900 after learning the above shipping information.
