I don't know what the big deal is about these speakers. Maybe I was expecting too much.
They are CRYSTAL clear in the mid to high range. Outstanding sound quality.
Not too big. Not too heavy. Didn't worry too much when mounting them for any reason.
The speakers handle high volume really well. I don't really turn them up myself, but the once or twice I have they seemed to take it and keep going just fine without any real distortion or concern for blowing them.
The sub doesn't have a control cable, so instead it just shuts off on its own after not being used a while.
The center speaker is very boomy. It can sound a bit muffled occasionally. Not the best choice for the speaker typically designated for voice reproduction.
There is a massive gap between the bass, handled by the sub, and the midrange and up, handled by the speakers. Yes, I adjusted the sub but it only goes so far.
Speaking of the subwoofer-- Yes, it's low, but it just makes booming sounds. It doesn't actually play notes or anything like that.
TL;DR: These make decent satellite speakers. I guess. Maybe the sub would work well in tandem with another one from somebody else. The center channel sucks.
