  • Summary: I bought these for $10 at a yard sale in perfect condition. I mostly bought them to experiment with and if needed gut them and use the cabinets. They need to be gutted. I measured them and they have reasonably flat response. But the midrange lacks any depth and clarity.

  • Summary: At close range, the speakers sound very clean and the timbre changes little with listening angle. As distance increases, the sound level of the tweeter drops much faster than the woofer's. The sound is very muddy past about 8 feet. They're excellent on an office desk or in a small room.

  • Summary: I was originally looking for speakers on ebay to add to a surround system I was putting togther and came across numerous sets of these. Most of the reviews I read on these made them seem like good speakers for the price. Fortunately that has been the case thus far for me as well.

  • Summary: I paired these with a 10" Athena sub to replace some very old Boston Acoustics A150 three ways I bought back in the 80's. Well, I got what I paid for. These are functional speakers, but there is no clarity.

  • Summary: Got a pair of these just to hook-up to the television. Didn't work as well as I planned. Am now considering using them for the rear channels on a surround system. I was comparing them to my high-end stereo speakers.

  • Summary: On paper, these speakers appear adequate for casual use and on top of it, they're fairly attractive and have good craftmanship for the price. However, in a critical evaluation their weaknesses are revealed.
