CONGRATULATIONS TO WOOT FOR MAKING IT TO THE BIG TIME!!! NICE ARTICLE IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL!!!

Good for WOOT, but may be bad for the rest of us who want to get in on the really good WOOT’s. I dread trying to get in on the next BOC.

The cheapest I saw the speakers was from a guy on Ebay who had a set for $79 shipped. Woot once again has everyone beat by a lot!!!

Ask an audiophile: MB Quart speakers are known all over the world for precision sound, advanced German engineering, and state-of-the-art construction. They’d probably be known farther and wider than that, too, were it not for the fact that in space, no one can hear you rock out to Pink Floyd.

Thanks to our extremely-close-but-nonetheless-platonic friends at Rockford corp., we got our sweaty little mitts on some MB Quart QLA46 OCTA corner-mount Loudspeakers. We don’t mind telling you that we’re kind of excited.

At last, something good has come from the creepy German obsession with purity! Diese kleinen Teufel are pedigreed noisemonsters from their maximum-purity-class titanium formers to their Censturd housing. Their distinctive shape gives you about a buhjillion mounting options: Made to mount vertically or horizontally, they can hang on your wall, tuck discreetly into corners, or hug the ceiling. You’ll hardly notice they’re there—until you turn on “Thirty Great James Bond Themes.” At that point, fellow citizen, there can be no doubt: you’re at the center of a superior sonic experience, and we ain’t talkin’ drive-thru burgers.

MB Quart speakers features:

* Polymer composite speaker cones for incredibly rich, natural sound reproduction
* Titanium tweeters coupled with super powerful Neodymium magnets for the most accurate sound when your tweeters are resonating at very high frequencies
* Swear to god, Neodymium magnets. It’s not just something we cribbed from an old issue of The Fantastic Four; they’re real. You could look it up.
* Die-cast aluminum baskets to help avoid over-heating
* Better impulse loading: Aerodynamically-shaped ribs and heat-dissipating fins cool the magnet system
* High quality voice coils with a huge 75mm/3in diameter, wound on titanium formers of the maximum purity class 1 for the best possible heat dissipation and lowest hysterese effects
* Copper-coated aluminum coil wire has a rectangular cross-section for greater packing density
* Center spider design featuring Censturd, a completely new material that for the first time allows a design innovation for centering. This produces a better balancing of the cone movement and a tremendous overall improvement in the linear displacement of the entire moving mass.
* Heh! Heh! “Censturd!” Ha! Heh… Eh, it probably doesn’t sound as funny in German.

Almost there woot, now all u need to do is add 5 more speakers to this and you’ve got the mystery 5.1 speakers.


#16

They look nice, but at 60 watt they’d be fried by my 100 watt/channel reciever.

Bring on the SD capable mp3 players!


#17

I’m sick and tired of my cats shredding my speakers. Let’s see 'em try and get to these babies.
Awesome Woot! Glad I was up late playing San Andreas.
