Bump - still available.

The sound quality that came out of the main speakers Quinto 540 caught me by surprise, they sound superb with a bass of note.

Now R4000.

Stormy, are you sure thats a 31cm (12"+) woofer as listed in your spec provided ? It looks more like an 8" or 10"... judged this from the given dome sizes of the mid /tweeter where they look like 10cm/6cm edge diameters respectively. Hard to tell without a measure reference..

Saw that...13" box width. Then looks like 1" either side of woofer frame. Left with about 11 inches...hence suspecting not a 12"+ woofer. Its not critical, but would be great to see a measurement.
