What makes these so special, man I thought wetsounds was expensive. I did not read the whole description but are they amplified? Bet you cant wait to power them up, I know the feeling I have $1200 worth of speakers in my garage and the boat is in the barn 50 miles away. I am getting close to wiring my garage just to play with my new equipment!

Enjoy!

They are not amplified. They are essentially the same price as wetsounds. A set of pro485s is $1800.

Horn tweeter is in the center under the grill, kinda like the rev10s.

Having had experience with both companies I am sure you will love these. Duwayne over there is awesome. Wetsounds gets all the love due to marketing and buying up add space along with being a great product. Their product is in far more shops than NVS. If you ask me the attention to detail and overall finish is a bit better on the NVS pods. Sound quality wise its all relative yo your ears. Both are tops. IMO until the Rev series NVS had the best combination of sq from hlcds.

That's what I thought alot regarding sound and quality, they are not that expensive when you are getting 4-10" hlcd speakers and tweeters for 1700 compared to the 1200 you pay for wetsound rev 10 and only get 2 speakers.

Also the hang height was very important to me, 8.6" nvs, 14" for wet sound rev 10
