I have not heard 3677s but my experience is all speakers are affected by finish, paint, or coverings changing their sound.matthias wrote:Yes, or as the 3677s are designed to be placed behind cinema screen...Music Lover wrote:If you like you could paint them white.
There is no information stating "3677s are designed to be placed behind cinema screen..."
From their web page; "Shallow profile cabinet minimizes behind-screen space requirements." This in no way implies this speaker was designed for a "cinema" or a "home cinema" let alone behind some sort of screen. I get the impression this speaker was designed for maximum performance and it just so happens it performs well in other environments.
I have listened to speakers behind and afront a screen. Hi-Fi Hierarchy always applies, not just if there is a screen.
