Soundstage ultra has the review and anecoic measurements for the bowers 805D4


Look like the new owners are staying with the current practice of enhancing the low and top end v shape tonal response

Experience of the older 805 versions leads me to recommend setting them high, maybe even with tweeter slightly above ear level. Certainly the earlier versions' tweeters 'separated out' from the midrange if you stood up, so deep was the suckout caused above axis.

I wonder if this is why PMC have a similar lifted hf in their domestic models? Maybe if they didn't, they'd be regarded as dull. All a market I'm now remote from, but I suspect survival in a niche market has trends to follow?
