Great speakers, modern design
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Wow, these are really nice! I have them paired with a Dayton 8" sub in a 2.1 audio system powered by a Yamaha A-S801 and they're really sweet. I've got them wall mounted upside down, angled down just like the instructions say and they work great. The tweeter and mids a just very, very sweet sounding and not harsh at all. The cabinet itself is an odd design; it's curved, so if you mount it at ear level it's supposed to be mounted right side up. But if you mount it above ear level, Martin Login recommends you mount it upside down, angled slightly (20 degrees) downwards. Mine are mounted upside down, and they sound really great in a 25x15 room. I'm not normally blasting these, I'm usually listening at normal levels, but I've cranked them a few times and they sound great at louder levels - no distortion. There's one thing I really like on the front of the cabinets - the custom, curved, metal grill. It has special stamping for the folded tweeter, it's curved to match the rest of the cabinet, and it's magnetic, so it easily snaps on the front of the cabinet. The one (and only) thing I don't like are the posts on the back. To insert the speaker wire you have to snake the wire in through a recessed channel in the rear of the cabinet. It's kind of a pain to get the wire in. But it's a small thing and not a deal breaker. These are very high quality speakers that sound very, very good when paired with a sub. I wouldn't run these without a sub. Recommended - very nice!
Pros: Sound fantastic, high quality cabinets and components
Cons: "Modern" cabinet design might not be for everyone, installing speaker wire into channel not easy
