Summary: Crisp with a rich treble and pumping bass. In fact the base is a little overwhelming but you can adjust your system accordingly. I am no audiofile, but I have systems in every room of my home and I put this my garage to listen to Pandora while I restore a classic car. I know Rock and Roll and how it is suppose to sound, these speakers accompanied with the Concert Hall setting on my receiver give excellent separation.
Summary: I just purchased these speakers after months of reading reviews and listening to speakers in various stores and i must say that these bad boys rock!!!!!!! For $108.00 with shipping you would be hard pressed to find a better sounding speaker. Plugged em up to my Denon receiver which pumps about 75 watts rms into them and i cant turn these puppies past halfway. The highs are crisp, and the bass is very surprising considering the size of the woofers.
Summary: Cewin Vega has an winner again. Right out of the box , these speakers were superb. Crisp ,clear,and accurate highs and mids , better than expected tight bass. I have become somewhat obsessed with speaker comparisons and various speaker sounds and 'personalities' In a 12 by 12 room this speaker clearly excels as a main speaker. Would be a great addition to a larger system as a surround. At a price of 115.00 at amazon, this is the best deal out there. That is for a pair.
