Summary: I have a pair of 350s and 450s in my living room. The 450s are used for the mains and the 350s are used as the surrounds. For bookshelf speakers, they’re fairly good. Just keep in mind what they are and not what Def Tech tries to make them out to be. They work well as long as the signal is clean (IE: Yamaha/Denon class, or better) and the amp does not make any kind of serious power.
Summary: I bought these back in 2007 in a 2.1 system with active sub. With the bass radiator and metal tweeters, these are Excellent for A/V, Movies, TV and good for rock and hip hop music. Bright highs and great bass. They are the closest thing you can get to an amp'ed bookshelf, and the sound is awesome. They fell out of popularity because people are more into wireless speaker boxes versus true 2.1's.
Outstanding value! These sound incredible for their size and price!

Summary: I was amazed at the sound quality of these speakers. They sounded better than many speakers costing 2X-3X the price! They blew away a pair of B&W speakers pricest at $1,500.00. The passive radiator add bass that you normally don't experience in a speaker this size. They look great too! I bought these intending to use them as surrounds, but while moving used them as fronts for a temporary system, and I was amazed at the sound.
Pros: The sound quality, especially bass. Look great with polished laquer, and have a higher "Wife Acceptance Factor" than most!
Cons: None: only thing I could say is that they are not condicuve to wall mounting if used as surrounds.
Great speakers! However for the price point the 450's are a better deal!

Summary: I bought a pair of these to use as rear surrounds with my 450's and I was fairly happy with them. However a week after I bought them for only $220 a pair the Def Tech 450's went back on sale for only $280! So I returned the 350's and paid the additional $60. Hey an extra $30 per speaker is well worth it to jump up to the 450's! So now I have the a great sounding surround sound system with two pair of the 450's in the front and the rear.
Summary: Great little speakers, sound a lot better than I expected. Hook this little speakers up together with the little super cube II subwoofer and you have a real big wonderful sound. Lot of bass and high fidelity sound in a small package. Good design, well built high end speakers.
