I wanted a bookshelf speaker that had excellent tweeter and mid-range capabilities. I wasn't looking for a stand alone speaker to compete with my SVS sub woofer bass capabilities. I am running a Outlaw RR2160 that is conservatively rated at 110 watts at 8 ohms per channel. It has 2 sub outs as well as bass mgmt built in. At 4 ohms it has more watts available. Although not completely broke in, the L200 sound very large and robust for there size. At around 80 decibels the classic rock I like fills up a med to large great room with ease. I would take the advice of not trying to run these with a lesser powered receiver. You could fry an Amp. Without a sub woofer in a small to med room these have enough bass to do the job. Overall I am pleased with my purchase and this is my first 4 Ohm speaker. Just make sure receiver is 4 ohm compatible.
Pros: HIgh end speaker that takes up little space. Back friendly
Cons: requires lots of power, but not really a reflection on the sound quality

I switch from Klipsch to Polk LSI 7 over 12 years ago because the Klipsch were fatiguing to me. But when my Yamaha Advantage DTS decoder board went out. I knew it was time to upgrade my system. So I decided to buy the L200 and another Yamaha Advantage AV since the two work so well for me in the past. Now I'm a retired avionic tech & inspector, so I know I should verify the specs. But for some reason, I just assume that the Yamaha Avantage would be able to handle the L200. I made the purchase and the next day A Crutchfield Rep called to inform me of my mistake. So he made some recommendations and we went with the Marantz SR7013. All I can say is WOW the L200 fills the room with rich bass and a wide detailed center stage. In Atmos mode, its as good as you can get in any movie theatre. But it's in the two-channel mode where this paring of the Marantz and the L200 really shine. And yes, in IMAX mode it simply sounds incredible. Love Crutchfield customer service they save me from a bad oversight on my part. Thank you so much, Crutchfield, for paying attention to your customer needs.
Pros: Bookshelf speakers with a floor-standing speaker sound.
Cons: The aesthetics are nice but for flagship speakers, I expected more.

Big sound from a bookshelf speaker. I don't have to turn the knob much on my power amp to get great sound. Very happy with my purchase.
