Summary: After reading 1000's of reviews on Amazon, I've never been compelled to write one myself - until now. Simply put, these speakers are terrible. I've had them for about a week now and they're definitely going back. Where to begin...Well, as my title suggests, the bass produces more of a thud sound than anything else. They're neither smooth nor in any way accurate, just thud, thud, thud. I tried various sub-woofer placements, EQ tweaks, and sub-woofer volume modulations.
