Summary: I got these on sale and used a promo code and got them under two hundred bucks.
Pros: I only paid one ninety nine for these on special. I have them hooked to a Harmon 70w per channel receiver. Great midrange and mid bass. Great for bass guitar notes. They drone good but do not hit or thump, of course you wouldn't expect that from 6.5's anyways. I have a 8" sub that takes care of all the lows these can't hit.
Cons: Narrower than I expected, about 5", but they are deep. Not really a con.
Summary: speaker placement is critical with these speakers largely dut to the side mounted woofers, one on each side at different heights. i moved them around while listening to different types of music until they sounded right. you can't put them too close to anything to the sides, or the bass goes away.
Pros: the speakers appear to be good quality and are very narrow in width (barely wider than the 4 inch front drivers).the sound is good in my smallish master bedroom.
Cons: the packaging is terrible. both speakers are in one large box with foam padding at the top and bottom with a narrow spacer around the middle. the box arrived with 3 large holes all the way through to the speakers and numerous dents. the bottom was crushed looking, like it had been dropped off a number of trucks. except for the top and bottom, there is only the cardboard box and a 2 inch air space between the speakers and the impacts. i was suprised that the speakers t...
Summary: There are actually two offset bass speakers per unit. I couldn't tell that from the pics, but there is one facing each side. They are slimmer than I expected also. I'm waiting on the LOFT20 center channel to show up (purchased elsewhere) and some LOFT40s to complete a surround setup. A separate sub is still necessary. They also get loud and handle quite well.
Pros: These are good sounding speakers, probably not premium but definitely good. Appearance is sharp, slim, and understated.
Excerpt: Bought from J&R at a good price and very fast delivery. Give them about two weeks of normal use to break in. Highs seem to float in center of sound stage. Voices are crystal clear and precise. Lows are good but for my taste I am using an Outlaw LFM-1 Plus enough said. Blue ray movies are out of this world and for stereo with a sub unreal at this price. Spend more if you want but these speakers are hard to beat.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Дополню свой отзыв от 04.11.2013, а в частности о прослушивании музыки. Сначала я только фильмы смотрел, звук нравился, а звук при воспроизведении аудио записей как то разочаровал, но... толи колонки прокачались, толи я настроил ресивер как надо... Теперь наслаждаюсь композициями любимых групп. Для таких «бюджетных» колонок звук очень-очень!!! Басы тут все-таки есть! Я даже сабвуфер отключаю. Не ожидал такой прыти от сего произведения от jbl.
