7. I have always been a real enthusiast of Martin Logan products and initially started out with a pair of ReQuests & Script speakers that were purchased back in the mid nineties for my home theater system. I acquired the Monolith-3 speakers later in a local audio demonstration because they sounded absolutely amazing and they are extremely rare to find with the piano black finish option. I'm using the front & rear channels bi-amped with active crossovers and have performed a few minor internal modifications to improve the performance.
