This is the most disappointing purchase I have ever made. There was so much hype going into these that it actually affected the way they sound at first, but once the confirmation bias wore off I knew something was wrong. When going from these speakers to listening to music in my car, the music got better even though it was playing through factory speakers on my aging car. I tested other cheap and worn out speakers around my house with the same results. Some 20-year-old radio shack speakers and some cheap KLH speakers both sounded better than the B652s; in fact, the only speakers worse were the ones in my tv. The tweeter in the B652s is practically nonexistent at the high end, is harsh and inaccurate for cymbals and electronic music, and it gets lost in the midranges coming from the woofer. I spent extra time breaking these in to no avail. I felt like I was listening to a completely different speaker than the ones that others had purchased in the past, and it turns out I was. I searched for information on the crossover and found out it doesn't really have one, but the originals didn't either. The woofer is wired straight from the spring terminal and then to the tweeter in parallel. (I also don't think these can be 8 ohms as the label claims.) The tweeter then has a single inline capacitor that is now 50v instead of the 100v capacitor on the original. This shouldn't necessarily change the sound, but it's inferior nonetheless. A review on budgetphile.com showed pictures of some of the differences in the new model, and comments on reddit noted similar concerns.Read more ›

Jolly, we would like to thank you for your past support for Dayton Audio products. We are intense audiophiles here at Dayton Audio, and knowing that any customer received a pair of B652's that disappoint them really gets our attention! As background, early this year we found that a number of B652's in the field had tweeters with reduced output levels - which is the main cause for the perceived poor sound quality some of our customers experienced. We immediately addressed the issue and have made other minor refinements to make sure the B652 sounds even better than ever. We understand and know that our reputation as a quality manufacturer is directly linked to the sound, value, and performance of our products. Since this unfortunate incident, we have implemented further QC standards and measurements to ensure that the B652 will never receive another black eye or unhappy customer and feel confident that the current supply chain is without any previous performance issues!

Since the first identification of this issue and subsequently correcting it, we have instructed anyone that owns a set of B652's that feel are lacking in performance or sound quality to contact our support staff for immediate replacement or refund. Again, thank you all for supporting Dayton Audio and we look forward to providing you with years of affordable, fantastic performing products!

The new revision (late 2012-2013) of these speakers makes them a total crap. I never tried the original ones but these i got now are very bad, there is no bass, treble roll off, the sound is far far from being accurate or clear even at the $40 price tag. Everything sounds THIN AND UNNATURAL!. My very old creative 2.1 computer system did better, or even my Lenovo Y580 JBL laptop speakers are at the very least as good as these Dayton B625. I am going to return them.

Just a side note. Coming from a Sennheiser HD800 and Stax, to my ears these speakers sound worse than $1 ear-bud. Head-fiers should definitely stay away from any sub $100 speakers system or get ready for huge disappointment.

*Everything is back as it should be.*

The old version of these speakers was great, but they have released an "Update" that completely ruins the sound quality. Do not buy unless you want to be ripped off.

I received these Dayton B652 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair speakers recently and I have played them for many hours. The amplifier I used mostly is the Dayton DTA-1 Class T Digital Amplifier 15 WPC which works beautifully with them; this versatile and excellent amplifier can be powered by AC or by batteries. (I can also highly recommend the Dayton Audio DTA-100a Class-T Digital Amplifier 50 WPC, which, though somewhat more expensive, is more powerful - no battery operation though.)

I am currently using this Stanton S.300 Tabletop CD Player with MP3 Compatibility as my source and I have played a large number of classical CDs.

The sound is quite amazing for such inexpensive speakers. It would be amazing if the cost were four times their low price. No kidding!

They do seem to work best in a near-field arrangement but they also easily fill up my bedroom with fine sound. I have them placed on these Dayton SSMB24 24" Speaker Stand Pair Square Steel Base, about six feet apart, and four feet from the rear wall (and more than that from the side walls).

The bass is not going to "knock your socks off" - but it is certainly not lacking either.

In short, they changed the components of these speakers to lesser quality. They now suck. Don't buy them. Hopefully this helps.

Ok, for point of reference, I have been on the hunt for decent bookshelf speakers around $60-$100.
I own a pair of Pioneer SP-BS22-LR which go for $130 and I own the Micca MB42X's for $80.

That being said, I didn't expect these to come close to those speakers but the extent to how bad they sound is crazy.

I ran them through 3 different amps, non-CCA full Copper cabling and could not figure out why on earth the tweeters are so bad.

They literally give me a headache after 2 minutes of listening and mine even came with a defect, one of the speakers would cut out.

That being said I A/B'ed these with my closest priced Micca's MB42x's and the difference is amazing. I even prefer the Micca's over the Anthony Jones Pioneer SP-BS22-LR which are $50 more.

So for $30 more than these just get the Micca's MB42x's, if you can't afford it at least get the non-crossover'ed Micca's MB42's which I have owned as well.

Just avoid these. I got them mainly because of the ranting and raving about how they were "fixed' this year.

I don't know if I got a bad batch but if QC is that bad it is not worth it, many more better speakers out there.

In fact the Micca Club 3's can be had for $40 if you are going really cheap but want good sound.

Now, I consider myself a sound freak, audiophile is thrown around so loosely I don't really like the term. I just know good sound and I have been a Dj/producer for 9 years and played around with $1500 speakers and $500 headphones.

And these Dayton's were just amazingly bad.

Anyway, I hope this helps someone to avoid them, heck, even my 5 year old Sony cheap bookshelf speakers are more balanced.
