Summary: this was not good speaker spent almost five hundred dollars on these speakers and they were not a good value. They give good mid range yet otherwise worth less. Went on to put these as side surround speakers and up graded quickly to a pair of sony speakers I got off e bay for 40 dollars much better sound. The do not work well. Heard for years how great bose was and it was not a truth. will not make this mistake again.
Summary: I am quite disgusted with these speakers. They have fairly good bass and treble, but that's basically it. These speakers totally lack midrange, in order to be more impressive. They come off sounding like the satellite speaker/sub combinations which I really dislike. The other problem is they are matched to be complimentary to each other. This means, the two speakers fill in for the problems with the other one.
Pros: excellent low and high frequencies.
Cons: totally lacks all midrange. are matched complimentarily and not congruently.
