I'd known for awhile they wouldn't go below 56HZ. I'm just shocked by the price is all. The CLS it replaces wasn't nearly as expensive compared to the other speakers in their line up.
Well, if you do decide to get them, you might as well go ahead and get the CLX 25th Anniversary Edition for only $24,995 per pair. What's another $5k if you are already spending $20k? They would probably look better with your 20' screen anyway.

BTW, IMHO, for $20k+ the panels should be bigger and not require a traditional sub for bass .
