Great when not wall mounted! Need a couple of inches from wall.
27 January 2015
Summary: Placement is EVERYTHING with these. I do NOT recommend these for wall mounting. They need a good 2-3" behind them for decent mid-range and bass. Would be 5 stars, but I wanted to wall mount. I have to get shelves for them to have space behind the speakers. They are great if located properly for your room. It makes 100% difference!!! DO NOT WALL MOUNT! ;-) Great speakers. Using a 125 w/c amp and can push them pretty hard/loud. I play loud.
Summary: I wasn't sure about these when I first received them. I've heard few bookshelf speakers I really like, so I wasn't holding my breath these would be any different..... but they were. Far from the wall I was unimpressed. I ended up placing them up against the wall in my room, and they sound surprising good there. The cabinets are nicely finished in Cherry. So many in this range are too bright, but these are not ...... just natural and uncolored. The mid is the same....
