* Items with two numbers reflect my poor effort to reconcile conflicting 
information. 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!
