Roswell R1 Tower Speakers


Recommended Posts

$2500 for a 8" midbass and a 1" compression horn? 
For comparison the rev 8's are $1400 and the XM9's are $1500.

That is about 1k for the light up housing.

A 10" has about 50% more surface area v's an 8" driver, so the larger driver will produce more mid-bass and deeper mid-bass. One has a horn loaded compression driver and will yield more narrow, focused sound at a greater distance, for say, wake range. The other is not horn loaded, so it will have a wider dispersion similar to a traditional tweeter. Sound is always subjective, so which sounds good to one person, may not be the same for another person.

I disagree. The stated 200W RMS is right in line with a handful of other 8" HLCD. There are a few 8" coaxials rated at 150W rms. 

Their subs wattage rating are right along in line with other brands and have been professionally tested to not hold the stated power.

@23LSVOwner The OP is discussing tower speakers, so thats what my comment is in reference to. Also, I do not know who the "professionals" are, what specific woofer or woofers were tested and how they were tested. As with the build specs of an 8" HLCD tower speaker, I do not see the RMS and PEAK wattage rating being overstated on any woofers.
