Excerpt: It's never a good idea to second-guess speaker makers. Take the Klipsch RB-10s: as they're part of the same range as the RB-81 s, seen in a past test, we were expecting a couple of brutes. Instead, the RB-10s turn out to be very compact. Their dimensions almost insist you put them on a bookshelf, one either side of a midi system.
Pros: Vanishingly small, vigorous, attacking sound of unlikely scale given their size
Cons: Can sound brash and unsubtle, especially in the rather muddy low frequencies
