Sorry Charles, I don't understand the logic here, but we can leave it at that.

BTW, the M9 weight is 1000 lbs (no need to guess it's published). It is mainly CF not aluminum, and it does ship in several parts.

That is exactly what Charles indicated. He was pondering what the M9 "would" have weighed had they stayed with a aluminum design and not moved to CF.

Marsalis, As I understand it, the "several parts" weigh an additional hundred pounds per speaker. The M9 itself weights 1,000 lbs. I would be more impressed with the M9's claimed weight savings if, due to the new cabinet technology, the weight had been kept to 750 lbs, same as the all aluminum Q7. This 1000 lbs does not even include the woofer to mid bass crossover.

Best,

Charles

I dont know how you can knock a speaker design for not having rear ambience drivers. It's not the magico MO.

This might be the necessary motivation for me to buy. a few lottery tickets. I haven't bought any in over 20 years. I am afraid the $270.00 I won the last time won't be near enough.

I always thought the purpsose of a loud speker system was to accurately portray what is recorded. Be it a disc , LP, Digital Stream, master tape, etc. Why them would you want to add anomalies to the sound by having rear facing drivers. Now if you want to create a concert hall experience out of todays dry to articulate recordings I can agree with you. But wouldn't it be nice to turn that feature on or off. You might as well by the best speakers you can afford and add either analog or digital processing to get the final sound you like. Whats the difference between electronic and acoustical manipulation? It just depends on the degree of sophistication and application and whether or not you like the final results.
