from Surprisingly Good Budget 2-Way TowerI wasn't quite sure what to expect when I ordered these speakers. I wanted small(er) tower speaker with better than average sound. That is certainly what I got. It isn't perfect, but it'll do. From classical to house to hip-hop and back to rock, these speakers handle just about everything you can throw at them.Make sure that be at least 10 feet away from each speaker. They have an unfortunately narrow x and y axis. The tweeter has a decent horn, but I do find it lacking. It's quite tough to make a 114 dB speaker omni-directional (without more power, or some creative engineering) and you'd certainly be hard pressed to do so for less than $175.

from Pretty Good for the PriceI owned these for about two months now. Overall, they work pretty well. I only have minor issues, but I would definitely purchase them again.Pros:- Good mid-range and wide dispersion on the horn tweeter.- Very good detail in from the tweeter without sounding harsh.- Works very well with the matching center and a bit of tweaking.Cons:- Grill rattles during notes below 50hz or so. I mainly noticed this during explosions and other movie effect. I have these crossed at 50hz and let my sub take care of the LFE.- No speaker spikes or feet. They are a little wobbly on carpet. I would imagine they would vibrate on hard floors. I installed some Dayton spikes, but for the price, I think they should be included.
