    I wonder if anyone has had any experience with these huge speakers from 705 Mission?

    I already own a pair of Mission 765i speakers which have served me well over the years, but after a few doulble shifts on Overtime I need to spend some money before the wife buys another lawnmower.

    I havent ever heard them.... but arent they supposed to be rather similar to the old 735? If i recall these were themselves tonally very close to the smaller (but still big) 734's. Given that this is from a long time back, i cant remember many details but the 734's were decidedly brash..... they hit very hard and they hit deep too. But they were a bit on the bright side and the midrange tended to be a bit swamped by the enormous bass. I would imaging the bigger speakers may well suffer even more from this.
