B&W car audio?

Has anybody ever heard any of the older bowers & wilkens(b&w)MASS car speaker systems?

Im not a big fan of the b&w line of home speakers because of the anemic bass response they gave but the mids & highs were fantastic so i started researching b&w car audio & i found out that they used to make several speaker systems called THE MASS.

If anybody has any experience with any of the mass systems please post your thoughts on how they sounded & how easy or hard they were to drive.

out dated drivers by today's standards. They sounded pretty good on axis, but had poor off axis response at the topend of things. Mids were fairly limited on excursion which means they didn't get too loud in IB usage.

U can find better sounding sets today.
