Patience and Positioning

Greg H., Amazon
13 May 2015
  • Summary: I played music and radio for 2 weeks non stop before doing a set up on these, the are very bright out of the box. After I ran the set up on my Marantz SR7008 any hint of harshness were gone, the stage was wide and detailed. Guitars on Led Zep3 sounded like they were in the room.

Well Suited For A Small Room

David M., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Summary: They are mounted in an unusual way; The shelf holding the components is above the TV, near the ceiling. A painted length of angle iron is mounted beneath the shelf - 'V' up. The front edge of the speakers balance on a soft strip on velcro in the 'V', angled about 30º downward.
  • Pros: Paired the Def Tec 450s with Integra 40.4 Stereo receiver (and, no, Onkyo and Integra are not the same; Integra is made with better quality components - notably upgraded capacitors). Back to the 450s: As noted almost ubiquitously, the 450s lean toward being bright - but it is slight. And they cle...
  • Cons: The 450s sound vaguely muddy; mostly a break-in deficiency.

Ton of great sounds for the money

  • Summary: I replaced my Klipsch RF-82 II with these SM 450 and no regret. Wifey said these speakers sound even better than the giant RF-82's speakers :-) The best part is the price, under $250 a pair on the egg website and they matches with my PC2000 center; PM1000's back surrounds; SR-8040BP's side surrounds...

great speakers with enough power

Renee M., Newegg
9 December 2014
  • Pros: really nice sound stage and coverage of the spectrum. took quite a while to open up though, so give them some time to break in (like several months with infrequent use) before you judge them. So it took some time, which you could speed up if you used them more than I do. But now they sound fantas...
  • Cons: the woofer does not have the phase plug that the more expensive models do. but the sound is still very detailed and rich.
