Summary: purchased these hoping to get a surround effect for rear speaker mode from 7.1 amplifier. I guess they would be better off used as a set of small loud speakers since thats what they are. I'm still trying to set up my receiver to get the right sound ratio for 7 speaker surround. I still have great old school JBL'S L-3'S FOR the front, an a surround set rear and center of FLIX-2 which seem to produce more power than the 130's that I just bought.
Summary: It might be ok for people that listen to quite music at low volumes. I used it as rear speakers yet the booming bass was unacceptalbe. It should have been designed for high and mid frequencis and filtered out the low frequencies.
