I hooked up my Forests with 300i model. They mated great but with higher power they will work even better.

I have had all their models from hawks to Sharmans.
I later found out that the Hawks have different drivers than the Forests,Winds and Sharmans. The best speaker for the money are the winds. They are two deminsional and have great bass but if their price is to high then go with the Forests. You will get the deal like the wind and later you can add a sub for the bass. Do not waste you money on the
i have had many different totem speakers and still have the mani 2's, and the
totem in-walls for my den. IMO, the mani 2's sound better than the prior
version winds, and are much better than the forest and hawks if you have the
right front end equipment. i'm not sure on the newer version of the winds.
also, check out the model 1's or model one, they don't require the power the
mani's do, and they are more musical than the hawks or forests. depending on
your room, you might need a sub (tight fast sub) for the model 1 or model
one, like a REL.
I just heard the Hawks with the Krell & didn't like it.
Both the bass & the mid-heights were too extreme.
After a while the speakers were exhausting...
Unfortunatly the Forests were sold, so I'll have to go with a new pair.
Is it worth the $3.5K or should I wait for another used/demo?
Thank you all for you help !
