Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought 1 open box and 1 scratch and dent speaker, I was a bit worried, but everything is working great. These replaced a set of onkyo surround speakers from a HTIB and the difference is incredible. It really opened up the sound stage and I'm hearing things that I didn't know were in the movies. Even the regular tv programs sound much better now. Everything sounds really lively and energetic and now I'm enveloped by the sound. I feel like I'm in the movie. I used them as my fronts for a while to break them in and then moved them to the back. They sounded really good as fronts as well. They look really awesome without the grills but I keep them on to prevent the dust. I prefer the grills from RS-42 II but I did not want to spend twice as much just to get a rounded grill. These speakers are big and heavy, but the build is high quality, so this is not a con. I love everything about them. They look and sound awesome. I can't believe they only cost half the price of RS-42 II. For the price there is no better deal. I wish I could've bought another pair, but for my living room it would be an overkill.
