ATCs both have super heavy cabinets and ludicrously heavy drivers. The motors on their dome mids weigh more than most woofers.LS50 from the passive bookshelves I've handled.
I've read users referring to ATC monitors as tanks, but I've never handled one myself.
Bought my son a pair of old maple-finish Dynaudio Audience 52 SEs last year and was startled by their carved-from-a-single-block-of-wood feel. Heavy and completely rigid.Who makes the most solid bookshelf enclosure?
I have Dynaudio, which is pretty solid, I think. Focal, not as solid as Dynaudio in my impression. Very thin wall.
Any experience with the other speaker brands?
This is what noaudiophile had to say about the B2031A's enclosure:On The budget end the behringer 203x stuff is insanely well built. 3/4" mdf with doubled up on the baffles, cnc'd brace that spans the whole cabinet. Makes a lot of the lower stuff look cheap, especially this new trend where the baffles are plastic.
