    I wonder if / when these will be available again. I've toyed around with the idea of a super high-value 3 way using these, theTEBM46 and a yet to be determined (suggestions?) tweeter.

      I tried to tag Pete in this message but for some reason the tag disappears when the message is saved...

      Being that the 8 ohm version is out of stock with no verified re-stock date would there be any chance of an 8 ohm MTM version with series 4 ohm drivers?

        David,
        This might help. I've been caught up in a xo over nightmare with with 2 - 8 ohm Anarchy's and a Wavecor 30WA11. (mtm that looks similar to an Apollo)
        Had a lot of trouble with cancellation,,,but there was an easy answer: JUST GO ACTIVE. Which took all of an hour to hook up and now the speakers are in phase, and hearing a lot of detail that was missing.
        I do have a mic and the overall response looks good; the mic was helpful dialing in the xo point and levels.

            I could simulate a MTM version using dual 4" but it may take a little tweaking.

              We're stuck inside here with bad weather, so had 12hrs of testing yesterday with a 12db active xo (need a 18db).
              A shout out for the Cambridge DacMagic Plus, extremely easy to use with USB/Toslink/RCA digital inputs. I bought the Cambridge for microphone testing, but will connect to Smart TV (set to PCM) and CD players with digital output.
              Equipment:
              Anarchy 4 - 8ohm
              Tweeter Wavecor 30WA11
              Amplifiers: 2 Rotel 990's, note a 15uf capacitor in series for tweeter for protection.
              Connection Wire: 20' long each 14/4 typ inhouse speaker wire.

              Listening Impressions:
              1. Pandora, feed from the TV via Toslink, more then 1/2 of the music was impressive, a few sour sounding songs which I skipped though. One very noticeable improvement was power handing with an active setup.

              2. CD player, 2 disks, male/female vocalists, both sounded great.

              3. Next, movie sound tracks/movie dialog. Mixed results, they active setup is not forgiving, so if the signal is not up to today's standards, nothing can be done to sooth/smooth/mellow out the sound.

              I found that the best listening positioning was ear level with the tweeter, centered about 17' - 18' away, although sounded fine further away -- 40' ish.

              Overall, the sound reminded me of good quality PA/DJ speakers; they could certainly be used at a smaller venue if needed. I am positive with a different xo, with greater slope, and minor eq adjustments they would work much better.
