Brilliant insight . Thanks very much.YES, I had both, Request and The Prodigy now... and the next one for me will be Renaissance 15A. Prodigy is a high class model with dual force boomers, but still the worst part of this speakers. The bass is a little bit better than Request but still booming, not a world class bass ! The best on the Prodigy is the ESL pannel, new pannel design vs Request, beautiful imaging and top class resolution. Caution this speaker needs a large room and more difficult to drive than the little brother Odyssey.

I had reQuest for 13 years that I bought new in ’96, then later owned a new set of Odyssey. Although the Odyssey was a very good audiophile speaker, was nowhere near the performance range of the reQuest being it was the replacement. I liken the Prodigy to the performance range of the reQuest, with a much better bottom end.Odyssey was the next iteration (if you will) to the reQuest. Prodigy was a huge step up. Summits used all the better tech, including powered subs, of course. If you've never seen the Prodigy in real life, they are MASSIVE. The woofer enclosure is just huge.. I would suspect they are definitely not a good fit for the majority of listening spaces. Summits are much more easier to live with and sound better, IMHO.
