    Yeah, that midrange driver appeals me a lot. I enjoyed the mid driver in the Revel F36 a lot, so I can only believe that I will like the Horizon/Tower's mid, whichever I end up getting based on Dave's advice.

    Hoping Dave will consider front porting the Towers...
    We would be happy to offer you a front ported set of towers. It certainly is not a problem... Only issue is that our current production run of cabinets is nearly finished (painting / dying stage). You would have to wait for the next production run of cabinets (estimated lead time of 90 days) else the pricing will be much higher as it would be a true custom pair of cabinets, requiring our cabinet maker to build just the pair as opposed to a high volume run which is much more costly.

    Please contact me by email to discuss...

    Dave, have you gotten a chance to read some of the prior discussion regarding the Horizon's imaging when used as mains as affected by its wide baffle?

    I appears that the Towers would image better than the Horizons because the Tower's baffles are narrower, of course.

    I'd be interested in front-ported Towers if there is a significant enough issue with the Horizon's imaging as mains to warrant going with custom Towers.
