      I like the marketing double talk of "solid perforated metal grilles" and "solid plywood." With no disrespect intended, is English the primary language at Yorkville? Mark C.

        Definitely compact by my standards. Splitting the difference volume-wise between the 10" and 12" microwedge (which are some of the smallest "real" monitors I can think of)

          Looks "compact" to me - a 15" square that sits 11" at its tallest.

            I find they have a pretty solid grasp of the English language.





            We may need to send them a thesaurus though. Then their metal grilles could be rugged, strong, thick or hulk. OK, maybe not hulk, but you get the idea. :-)

                ... and the SRX-712... but the microwedges and 712 are 4x the wedge as well.

                  Those 6" speakers look similar to the ones in the paraline speakers...

                    So, with dual 6"speakers in a monitor that has a -3db at 80 hz, are these aimed primarily at vocalists? Keep the mud out and emphasize vocal clarity? Looks like they'll get pretty loud. What's the price point- under $300?

                      Maybe they had a bunch left over from all the Paralines they didn't sell!



                      While the wedge looks interesting, I can't see many of them selling unless they are cheaper than the E10. Even then everynoe seems to want powered speakers, at least at the MI level. And I imagine they will cost more than the $500.00 or so that the E10 goes for.



                      It's funny, they are in that pseudo pro shape, but without the SPL.... (as AH pointed out). I think Yorkville will sell many more YX10P's than this box, but I guess kudos are deserved for not always going after the dollar - although their accountants might disagree.

                            124dB continuous sounds like pretty fair SPL to me, especially for a floor monitor.



                            If it's from the Elite series(which it is), it won't come cheap, that's for sure.

                              With a 10 year guarantee (standard on all Yorkville cabinets), I'd say "solid" is probably a good way of describing them.
