Summary: No other speaker sounds or looks the same. If your a Klipsch fan this is one of Arkansas's best. If your not, you will be. Get some ear protection and make friendly with the neighbors. These babies will blow you away. Loud, super deep bass. Clear, accurate and clean. Ultra efficient, you don't need much to make these speakers howl. 3/4 inch birch plywood. Heavy, like speakers used to be. How else could something this small sound like a concert hall. Buy them at all cost!
