Conclusion: I installed these temporarily until I got my DLS components back. I had them amplified by an Audison, putting about 50 watts to each speaker. With a little EQing, they sounded alright. The highs are a bit bright, and get harsh at upper leves. Probably because they are only 35 rms a piece. The mids are probably the best part of these coaxials. The lows, well they aren't there. They bottom out bad. Worse than my first set of speakers which were the Infinity references.
Conclusion: These speakers are truly great. Thing is they are for the person on a budget, but yo, its pioneer so you already know. Me personally, i bang pac to biggie jay to nas and m to wayne, but also get down wit maroon 5, killswitch engaged, the doors, and red hot chilli peppers. These speakers do it all with justice. I study everything b4 i buy it. These are the best u'll find. Dont try ta find better elsewhere...u wont.
