    Just out of curiousity, how would these assumably compare to 170's in fr and linearity, would they outperform? I think I'd pay around 300-350$ b/c of the conveinence factor of size and port location. assuming these could be placed as front mini-bookshelf's for smaller systems, that'd be a nice pricepoint too.

    Just to Summarize feature set for a possible Sierra .5

    Single 4" woofer
    Same Sierra-1 tweeter
    Smaller than the HTM-200 SE
    Bamboo enclosure
    Easy wall mounting
    Front ported (will need to be ported to hit the LF requirement)

    What would you be willing to pay for a pair of these?
    Can you ballpark the LF extension for this ".5"?

    Maybe we should move this to a thread by itself. ohyeah, forgot to mention that if these outperformed the 170's, Id pay closer to 400$

    You would have to define outperform in this case. The 170SE's are $348/pr...what do you want for your extra $50?

    I'd say, for about $450-500/pr.....give me bass extension of the 200SE(maybe a bit better)...and from there on up in the class of the Sierra. Size was, smaller than the 200SE and easy to mount....with matching cabinets.

    Using the same percentage price difference between the CMT-340 and CMT-170 would put the Sierra .5 at ~$520. Equating the extra driver of the CMT-340 to the bigger driver of the Sierra-1 makes that seems like an almost valid comparison... although I'm just making this up as I go.

    Dave, I'm sure whatever price you settle on will be fair.

    Front-ported! Yowza! Easy placement bliss.

    +1.

    If they compete with usher s-520 in SQ, then a little more due to size advantage. Usher s520 is $479/pr MSRP. The street price could be lower.

    Default Sierra .5?

    Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here, but I felt the posts were getting a bit burried in the other thread (http://forum.ascendacoustics.com/sho...?t=3755&page=4)

    I'd have to say, I thought the .5 was a bit of joke talk, but if this is an actual possibility I'd have to say I'm very excited to see it come to fruition, as I'd hopefully be able to say I own a pair of sierra's without breaking my bank

    These could bring hi-end sound to the masses. True, a good sub will still be required to get the full benefit, but for smaller systems these would be killer!
