    Eric Clapton documentary - good film

    I have a pair of 12s and am very satisfied. Very good value IMO. From what I hear though, it sounds like a pair of 10s would do just fine for your application. Good luck!

    My original post got deleted. Too bad any reference of it can't be wiped out either. It was an obvious joke on my part, meant to instigate.

    DXR 10 vs DXR 12

    I have the DXR12s and am satisfied for the price, as they are very loud and move a fair amount of air if required. I think it's a good value proposition. I just think the 10s wouldn't quite be enough juice, although I have not tried them.

    DWEEZIL ZAPPA NEEDS OUR SUPPORT!!!

    I fully agree. He could probably use the name Dweezil and carry on. I think he is just fighting this on principle, since he has earned the right to do it, with all the hard work learning the extensive FZ catalogue, unlike the young ones, who have done S.F.A.

    Aliasing in my AX-8

Seems they would sell for CAD 180, but I'm sure CAD 120 would be a fair price. Best...
