Ive loved Klipsch for so many years now, I never listened to other speakers that much. Alough a friend was selling these and asked me to come listen to them...All I can say is I was blown away by the output of such a slim speaker..I couldnt beleive the sound from the slim towers..Im defenitly a Boston Acoustics fan now...Klipsch I still love you, but I cannot stay 100 percent faithful now.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to follow up on my review from 2001. I wished to add that when I originally reviewed the speakers I was still using my JBL sub and hadn't bothered to use the Boston's built-in sub. I made the poor assumption that the 8 inch subs in the Boston's would not compare witht the 12 inch JBL; how very wrong I was. One day I experimented and connected the sub cable to one of the speakers and I was thrown back! An unbelievable sound. I have since moved my JBL to my bedroom and utilize the Boston's only for my main and sub speakers.

The speakers hav a main hook-up and a dedicated sub hook-up as well. I'm not sure how the bass works with and not against the sub (seeing the speaker is the same) but it does. The control knob on the rear controls the amount of sub you hear. You can rumble the house on#3 setting--which is low!!!

If you are able to pick a pair of these up I can't see you going wrong.

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are detailed and put out a good amount of bass. They are razor thin but they are very powerful. Really great if width is a factor in placement!!!!For a grand you will not go wrong.

Bottom Line:   
Great speaker, I didn't have any packaging problems like stated in other reviews. I'm no mid-range expert but I they do the job. The high are awsome I compared them to Klipsh and heard the difference instantly. Not a fan of the horn tweeter to high pitched. Built in sub is a space saver but I need to adjust the volume often. I guess I can't find a happy medium for music and DVD's.
I also compared to mirage and if you think these speaker lake in mid then give a listen to them. Overall very pleased they do what I bought them for. Clean sound to listen to a movie or music. Good speaker for the price
