Hmm, well, I was first instroduced to SI through SIN and Lloyd's testing of one driver. Seems after that quite a few people jumped on the bandwagon and all I heard was nothing but hype for the Magnum, especially from Clarke! So me, being the optimist took everything with a grain of salt and was actually negatively biased towards the Magnum due to the sheer fact of all the hype. Then I get on this site one day and see a photo of the 15" version, and just HAD to have one. IT was very odd but something struck a nerve and I was hooked. Just on sight mind you. So now I figure I get to see what all the hype is about. The day of reckoning arrived when I was playing around with my 15, 4.2 cubes and 1200 watts. I won't articulate, but anyone who knows me knows I am a tough critic with a very hard to please ear. Needless to say, I don't believe I have had a more joyous set of ears since the day I heard my MAG!
