I totally understand how you feel. There is good and bad in what Tekton does. The good is that he listens to his costumers and will make improvements when needed instead of setting on his hands for a couple of years before doing anything as most manufactures will do. I really applaud him for doing this but in the case of someone like yourself i can see how this could be bothersome. But you know you could like your speakers more than the so called improved model. I have the latest model of the Double Impacts which have the wider dispersion of the mid-range as opposed to the earlier model that had the more focused mid-range which means the earlier models had a smaller sweet spot. Depending on who you talk to many like the earlier model better.
