I recently bought a pair of ELAC Debut F6 speakers. They sounded good but after a month, I they still just sounded good. No "wow' or "pop". Sent them back and bought a pair of RP280s. I've only had these a few days but WOW, I sure am enjoying them so far. Obviously, a different SQ than the ELACs but so much more dynamic and fun to listen to.
This would be a great combo for someone looking for a DIY project. I wish DIYSG offered Baltic Birch when I did my sub.
