And here's the back of the literature.  The speaker was designed in the late 1950's at Electro-Voice, and firm for which my dad worked back then.  They made some amazingly good speakers and systems -- and this one is a tongue-in-cheek jabs at the spec sheets that so many audiophiles wanted for their newest equipment.

Please read the text carefully, maybe even out loud.  Don't skip reading it -- you'll find out what's so humorous when you read it.

I had one, but misstakenly cross-wired it (didn't think it was possible!) -- it exploded and took out the garage.  Be very careful and register the delivery date with Homeland Security.

I work in the audio business, doing rentals and tech-ing for corporate functions, schools and festivals.  We're also an ElectroVoice dealer, and their products are well represented in our rental stock.

Rentals of this item have skyrocketed in the last 6 months, and they've become a "must-have" rental for all of the pink slip meetings we've been doing lately. 

Nothing offers a fonder corporate or middle management farewell, or leaves a dismissed employee with a warmer regard for his former employer, than the use of a properly engineered rearaxial.

Chris, you can't talk that way when you are wearing a new DLRA shirt, so bare your chest and then oversell the meeting.
