Last week I'd never heard of the Infinity WTLC, now I own four of them

I had heard these mentioned when I was researching my Kappas 6 last week, but never paid much attention. Then yesterday a guy just throwaway mentions he has them for sale in an ad for receiver.

I immediately inquire if the tweeters work and when I can get them. I drove all the way across the Sound to grab them. I ran a 8-14k frequency test to ensure the Ohms were functional and BOY did I forget how painful those tests can be without properly lowering the volume. He tells me he wants to sell all four at once and I oblige. JUST fit them all in my sedan.

Welp, I'm now sitting at my office desk listening to sound bounce all over the room like I'm having a lunch time acid trip. These things are bananas!

The tweeters need to be be refoamed eventually, and they ain't the prettiest things I've ever seen, but these things do vocals and acoustic guitar as well as any speaker I've ever heard. The little guitar run on Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" at about 1:15 has never sounded so clear before (and I've heard this song approximately one billion times).

The bass is adequate, but I happened to have a Def Tech Reference Supercube (1800W monster) sitting around. Pairing these turned into a true "wall of sound" situation that was honestly overwhelming. Especially considering this is all about 6ft in front of me.

They are not too power hungry, which I was worried about as there is seemingly no efficiency numbers available for them. Running them around 12 o'clock on the SMSL SA-98E amp at my desk and they are as loud as as this 14x12 room can possibly handle. I would guess around 86db or so.

So, yeah, if you happen upon a pair SNATCH THEM UP with all possible speed.

PS I'm temporarily alone 6 hours a day in my building, so I am able to blast music at will. It is so great and I hope I never have office mates again!

PPS yes, there is a small tear in that front driver. It doesn't seem to be effecting performance, but I have little hope of finding that driver for a reasonable price.
