The 20.7 is not big.
What? You say.
The 20.7 is not big from an acoustical standpoint. However, the bass driver is big. If we sold the portion of the speaker from 200 Hz up, you could put it in the average apartment. Yes, it is tall, but very narrow. The ideal speaker would be a massless line-source that would look like a pole--from the floor to the ceiling. The 20.7 comes as close to that ideal as is possible with real-world devices.
The 20.7 bass driver is the reason it is big. Sorry, but that is what it takes to have high definition bass (We are not fans of hybrid speakers).
The Florida customer with the system below wrote---
"Listening to the 20.7s in my room for the first time was a "wow" moment that raised goosebumps. There was no directionality to the wall of sound that these speakers create. But, more notable to me was that the immediacy that made the experience seem live."
The 20.7 was subjected to "blind testing" by a panel of audiophiles and casual listeners. In addition to better sound, there is one more important improvement that you can test for yourself. If you have the opportunity to hear the 20.7s at your local dealer, try this experiment — Ask the dealer to place the speakers with the tweeters on the outside. Note how the imaging remains remarkably stable when seated far off-axis. With some speakers it is necessary to sit in the "sweet spot" for good imaging. If you are too far out of the sweet spot, you will hear predominately one speaker. With the tweeters on the outside, the 20.7 has the widest sweet spot of any of any previous Maggies. If you prefer to sit only in the "sweet spot", try the tweeters on the inside. Be sure the speakers are toed-in. In all cases, the tweeter should not be closer to the listener than the bass section.
