Great sound

Zachary Nebben "nebben", Amazon

  • Summary: I know some other reviews seem to talk about some previous production issues, but the pair I received sound great. This was the first set of bookshelf speakers I purchased, so I didn't have any real expectations. But, I was very impressed with the amount of low end that these speakers provide, and the mids and highs perform very well. Incredible bang for your buck!

Great Bang for the Buck

  • Summary: These speakers are quite good for the price. They appear to have returned to their former quality after the "redesigned" models were so awful.

Vastly over-hyped. These sound truly awful. UPDATE: REPLACED.

  • Summary: I had high hopes for these when purchasing due to primarily very positive reviews saying "these sound better than speakers costing twice as much," etc... I got my pair in, hooked them up and was sadly disappointed. They have NO bass response, and very muddy mids. These sound like an old cassette boom box.

Dayton Audio replaced the speakers as they said they would!!

  • Summary: I can not recommend this speaker! I tried it out with my Lepai LP-2020+ which I normally connect to some large old Wharfdales which sound OK. This B652 sounds like some cheap speaker off an old boom box or worse. Wait until they fix them or buy something else.

Dayton B652s -- Far Exceeds Expectations!

I gotta agree with the other negative reviews

  • Summary: I needed something cheap but decent for my garage/home gym. I have high end speakers & amps in the house if I really want to sit down and listen to some tunes. Just wanted decent at a low price.Based on the reviews, I thought these were it. I really wanted these work out but just can't say they sounded any good. From the very second I installed them I knew something was off. Bass was muddy and they just sounded like garbage.

Appears Amazon still have the defective batches...

Johnny M, Amazon

  • Summary: I have just recently placed an order on July 29th. 2013, received it on the 31st. After some testing, especially at high volumes, the highs/mids are unbearable to listen too, its very high pitched, the vocals gets distorted. I contacted Dayton directly, they setup up a replacement order the same day after providing proof of purchase, tracking# received, it arrived in a couple days. No hassle didnt have top return the defective unit.
