Summary: I had to replace my large Kenwood speakers because they've been too big for the new living room. I ordered these speakers and doubted that the bass will be good. But now some weeks later I can tell that they are worth every cent. I had to switch off my loudness because of the clear and loud bass.
Excerpt: I bought these speakers to replace my old Bose system. I am using these for my front speakers on my 3/2/1 home theater system. I'm driving them with a Sony receiver with 145 watts per channel. The amazing sound fills my great room easily. I am very happy with these speakers.
Summary: Have had these speakers for 2 months now, they are well broken in. I can definitely hear a difference in the quality of sound today as compared to when I first received them.

Summary: Very good speakers - probobally deserve a 5 star, but the base is just a little empty for me - although, I don't know if that is fair to say of any bookshelf speaker... I do like them and for the price, I would buy em again.
Summary: I needed a separate system to bury my head in-between the 2 stereo speakers to entice creativity when I paint abstract art. I dug out my original amp/receiver from 1977, my Lafayette LR-5555. I needed two bookshelf speakers to nestle into my painting corner.
