ADS STILL SELLS SOME DARNED FINE LOUDSPEAKERS!
I know, everybody thinks their speakers are the best thing going, but...
If you want a killer little speaker that is built like the proverbial brick out-house, is extremely neutral, quite affordable AND is not just another little mdf box, then you simply must check out these offerings from ADS. In particular, their "HT" line of small speakers and subs.
I have a trio of HT400LCR's with a pair of HT300's for surround duty, and must say, I am thrilled with these little jewels! The 300 is a very compact two-way acoustic suspension design with a 5 1/4" woofer and a 1" soft dome tweeter. The larger 400 is basically the same, but uses two woofers with the same tweeter in a "D'Appolito" array. (see avatar) Both speakers use enclosures made of high density extruded aluminum, with the sides being curved to add strength and reduce internal standing waves. The 300 weighs in at a substantial 20 pounds, while the 400 tips the scales at about thirty pounds. Both speakers are only about 7 1/2" wide by 9 1/2" deep. The 400 is less than 16" tall, while the 300 is about 10".
OK, I know this sounds like ad copy (and lame ad copy at that) but I just wanted to share the joy. Besides, I think ADS may need all the good exposure they can get, judging by their extremely low profile of late.
