When I made the decision to upgrade, I researched outdoor speakers for over a month. The reviews I read for the Klipsch 650 were always very positive except for one thing, in a few reviews I read that the bass, driven by a 6.5" woofer wasn't strong enough. I'm writing to tell you that that is defiantly NOT the case. Because this was a concern, I choose a few base heavy selections to test them, Burning Spear, King Tubby, James Brown, John Coltrane etc. they all sounded tremendous! These speakers were clear and crisp without the lease bit of shrillness. The mids and base were solid without being overpowering. The overall sound of these speakers is simply tremendous. I look forward to hitting my deck every night to enjoy them, your search is over- buy these speakers!
Pros: Crisp clear highs, warm mids and strong base response. I found the base response to be much more then adaquate. These are very sensitive speakers, you won't need much to get a big, clear sound from them.
