    hi there guys,

    a friend of mine owned a pair of active monoblock speakers in the early nineties which i remember sounded fantastic and we were trying too remember what make and model they were?(yeah we have bad memorys,was 10 years ago though!)

    i was wondering if any classic hifi experts here could rember what they were called !

    i can remember that they were stand mounters quite big,possibly about 20"high by 8"wide and roughly 20" in depth and very heavy. they had an active amp (monoblocks?)in each one with a small white manual adjustable equaliser/crossover on the back with a phono connection, they had 3 drive units which there were two, 5" or 6" mid bass units one at the top one at the bottom and a 1" soft dome tweeter in the middle. the fronts were black with removable black covers but the rest of the speaker was a cherry/dark oak colour?

    they were the best speakers ive ever heard! so its buggin me that we cant rember there name!aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

    Very likely Meridian M20s...the drive layout and size sounds about right
