I bought a pair of Fried Monitor 7 speakers for use in a small room. They're clean and they're more efficient than certain older Fried transmission line speakers. They're fine for a small room. However, for larger spaces I think they should offer a bit more bass response.
I still have a pair of the much older Fried model C (6.5" + 3" drivers) in conjunction with a pair of model O (10") subwoofers and a separate supertweeter in a third cabinet. I'm contemplating comparing the new and old head-to-head.
The only thing holding me back right now is the sheer weight of these units. I'd need help lugging them back and forth.
By the way, the surrounds on the Model C 6.5" drivers had deteriorated over the years. Recently, the Fried company offered its customers a pair of replacement drivers for $59.95 postpaid. Once installed, they worked beautifully. I wish this company great success for maintaining its high standards in the tradition of Irving M.(Bud) Fried, whom I had the pleasure of meeting long ago.
