The Magneplanar 1.6/QRs are one of Magnepan's most popular models, being one up from the smallest in the line. They have a 2" wide, 48" high quasi-ribbon as the tweeter, and a 442 square inch bass radiating panel. Crossover is at 600 Hz, with L/C crossover components in the base of the speaker. The lowest impedance is 4 Ohms, with higher impedances near the crossover frequency.
The rear panel has speaker binding posts for bi-wiring or bi-amping, but they are not conventional posts. You need an Allen wrench (supplied) to tighten a lock-down nut onto banana plugs or bare wire. Removing jumpers not only lets you bi-wire or bi-amp, but also to insert resistors (supplied) for attenuating the tweeter response. The tweeters have exceptional energy dispersion, and because they are dipolar, surrounding walls might be too reflective, particularly if you like hard rock music which tends to have treble rise. A 3 amp fuse protects the tweeters from too much current. The speakers sit on metal brackets, and the entire speaker is quite light for its size.
The Maggie 1.6 keeps on revealing more and more music with every improvement acoustics / electronics etc. It's strengths are in 3D imaging, instrument seperation, detail in the mids/highs. The bad recordings sound bad, the great recordings sound awesome !
