Summary: I love these speakers. I read all the good reviews about them online. The two lower woofers put out a lot of bass, surprised the heck out of me. love the crisp pop of the midrange. I like to crank these up loud so I can hear them throughout my one story house. Also I love the way they look with out the covers on the front, didn't even bother putting them on. They were half the price of the big box stores so I didn't want to let them go.
Summary: Well, I've heard so much about these I went to Bestbuy and listened to them, fantastic sound. So I commenced to build a Home Theater system. Started with a Samsung 65" led, 3D, Denon 7.1 1295 watt 3D pass through, Samsung 3D Bluray, 2 cf-70's, pair of cb-20's, C-10 Sub and the cc-10 center. Your kidding me right? I can't believe I waited so long to do this. Had the Geek squad come out and hook them up. I'm still giggling like a little girl!!!
Summary: Yes, yes, yes! That's all I can say after purchasing these speakers. ENERGY IS THE BOMB! I feel like this is by far the best sounding speakers for the money. Sure you could spend $1000s per speaker and probably get a little better sound, but for 99% of people these will do the trick! If you can find these on sale and are in the market for new speakers don't even hesitate to get these CF-70s! Music sounds crisp and you can feel the resonance in your bones.
Summary: Purchased these about 3 years ago at the new egg place for a steal, approx.. 400 for 2. I have to say that they were one of the best investments I have made. Every time I turn them on, I can't believe the clarity and clearness they produce, even when I drive them at peak power they never distort. I have an Onkyo 600 series amp with 90 watts driving them.
Summary: Super nice speakers. If you like Klipsch like me you'll love these. Dedicated mid-range is a big deal. The nicest thing about these speakers is the sound stage. You can point them directly towards the main listening area and not really be able to tell where the sound is coming from which to me is a huge huge huge deal. Put together with a center channel and movies are just nutty good.
Summary: What limits my STAR rating is not having a lot of other recent speakers to directly compare these to. They are much better in rendering audio detail than the old Cerwin Vegas they replaced. They look very good. If there's any shortfall, it would be that one might expect speakers this large to provide a little more sound output for the power they consume.
