Amazing Value Performer
Got these and after 1 year of listening to them with various types of music and movies I can say that for a relatively low budget one can take a peak into the audiophile realm. Over time i have discovered that these are very sweet in the upper middle freq/high freq end of the spectrum (Especially Female vocals) and provide a wide sound stage when properly placed. they can take a lot of power before they bottom out...most of the mainstream receivers make them sing well due to the efficiency of the speakers. If you have an AMP with the rated watts that is even better, will definitely sound much better than your normal HTIB experience (bose, sony,denon, even polks own htib system) They have good bass extension to the upper 50s in the room, good for any apartment or small room, very punchy due to the ported cabinet....but to really enjoy them pair them to at least a 50W sub(Polk PSW-10) at a minimum and cross them over to the sub at 80 or 100HZ depending on your preference and you will be in musical heaven.
