Doug points out in one of his posts that two simmilar speakers have impendances of 5.4 and 3.85. He states that the Carver should probably come in around 4.5. From this it would seem that construction differences should place the Carver ribbon in between the two given points, hence the first number. Alternately, the Carver ribbon is 60" long, thus about 1.3 times the size of the larger of the two drives, hence the latter figure. Any clearification on this would be appreciated. Heck, I haven't even seen these beasts! _______________________________________________________________________ Hope this helps RJ
