I always cringe if speaker manufacturers are unable to publish some basic meaningful specs let alone measurements on their website. At least I didn’t find any not even in the service or download section. So if they are there please point them out.

(Yes the linked stereoplay article lists some very rough ones. On axis not very impressive. But why can’t the manufacturers provide them?).
