@GXAlan Same "tip" warning is on this set (sticker upper back of speakers). And not to beat a dead horse, but ... You really have to give them a strong push from behind to get them to tip (I would venture to guess there are several other speakers out there that would tip much more easily and they do not have a "warning"). Would be quite the earthquake to tip these babies over (you would likely have much worse issues than just the speakers falling over with that size of a quake).When I bought mine new (not refurb) there was either a big piece of paper on the speaker or a manual that was warning the customer that it is too heavy (and to anchor it) but provided no mechanism for anchoring it. If they had a nice eyelet that didn’t destroy the cabinet it would have been great.
For me, the fact that they had bright bold warning (and I have little ones and live in an earthquake zone) had me sending it back.
I am pretty sure the 590’s would out measure the TAD speakers which were just measured.
But I totally hear ya ... If I had little ones, I would anchor them (or purchase some outriggers that extended to front of speaker). I suppose what I would say is this "top heavy" issue is certainly not enough to cause me to return the speakers! But if you have little ones and no way to mitigate the tip hazard, I can certainly understand why you would return them.
As to the 590s vs the TADs just measured, I have heard megabuck TADs in the past and I do not feel I am giving up anything at all with these 590s. So I suspect you may be correct.
