    @123toid Honestly, I think it has to do with quite a few things. People think because its full range you won’t get any good high-frequency content out of it, also, sensitivity isn’t the best on paper, but IRL (particularly small to medium rooms) is much better than it is rated due to the low directivity, that, and people just like to stick to what they know, BMRs are very new and certainly not mainstream in DIY. The closet you have is the Philharmonic BMR, and they don’t even utilise the BMR in the way it is intended (full range), so people end up not really seeing the benefits I think. I mean they aren’t the be-all and end-all, but probably the best drivers you can get for the price (best value).
