    Check out these speakers !!
    http://www.bang-olufsen.com/sw2199.asp

    They're brand new not sure if there are any released for review yet. But if anyone out there has heard these then I would be interested in your findings.

    Just check out the specs on these beauties 2.5KW of amplification in each speaker. 1000W to a 15 inch sub !!

    I think I read somewhere that they have to be used with special cable connectors unique to B&O amps/speakers. Might be difficult to use off a regular amp?

    I think they look like the old Sorting Hat in Harry Potter. :D

    Say what you like about B&O for design and price etc...

    My missus' folks have an entire B&O setup and it sounds very, very good.

    The Picture on the TV is the best I have EVER seen from a standard RF source. (B&O insist on installing thier own aerial array)

    They look like something a farmer would use to plough his fields.
