Bottom Line:   
Hi, Ive got 4 SM 255 speakers and the crank. they are an awesome speaker.the sound and clarity is amazing from listning to music to watching movies (in DTS of course). Made in france and assembled in the USA i think. I also have 2 SM225 speakers and a Infinity centre speaker of the earlier series but i have replaced the tweeter if the centre speaker with a tweeter from the SM225 speakers wich is 200 watts and it sounds primo with the big speakers when watching movies. i also have the small surrounds in another series of infinity. all infinitied out. its awesome. I paid 2000 for each pair of my 255 speakers when they first came out. the only real weakness ive found with these speakers is that they are too big. lol. you need a massive room to have them in. lucky we built a house to compensate for the speakers.lol

Bottom Line:   
These were the last of a dying breed, Infinity never made another SM line, and probably never will.

Have used these for almost 9 years. These things are big and heavy (3'6" - 87LB) and put out good'ol loud, clear, room filling sound that you feel in the chest. They have nice deep bass (down to roughly 25hz) on a good amp or receiver. A nice solid-state amp (Pioneer, Kenwood, Sony) will only do them justice. Stuff built these days was never designed to push speakers this big and efficient. Have only received compliments on these and people freak when they see them.

If your ever lucky enough to pick up a pair, do so, speakers like this don't come around often.

Note: My price paid is $120 pair, $130 shipping = $250. Thats right, they cost more to ship then to purchase, but well worth it!

Bottom Line:   
In appology, I am reviewing the SM 152's, which I believe has all of the same construction as the 255s other than having the dark wood venuer and slightly different grills... (I could be wrong however here...)

These speakers are the best pair I have heard to date. Tigher, more responsive bass than a Cerwin Vega. Far better midrange presence than JBL. And rock way harder than any tame little Bose! Funny, the first 2 companies are all tied into Harman Kardon somehow...
The 15" woofer is extrememly potent in higher volumes, but never booms over the mid or high frequencies. Even playing bass heavy music such as Rap, the bass stays tight and well defined. The twin 4 1/2" mid drivers cut through the midbass with a nice sense of presence... The polycell tweeters can get abit bright at higher SPL, but this is easy enough to adjust with proper EQ. Speaking of EQ, you would be surprised by how good these sound even with a flat EQ setting! The front level controls are very usefull in creating just the right sound to suit your tastes.
No matter what style of music I listen to or what movie I watch, these speakers never seem to sound dull. One note however to say is if you live in an apartment like I do, it can be VERY HARD to tame these beasts from causing a domestic disturbance. Even at a lower volume, that bass is still bumping!
One thing to consider is space. It takes a large listening room for these speakers to create a nice soundstage. In a smaller room they are just a bit too overbearing. Another consideration is how heavy these bad boys are!! If you move often like I do, you better find a good chiropractor or find yourself a roadie cause at about 98 pounds a piece, you are in for some pain!

Bottom Line:   
Man, I have had these for quite a while now. I am in the Air Force and live in the Droms. I have the cops up hear every weekend from these things making lights come out the roof! I am running it on a Sony DE845. The amp has the EQ but not the cooling system or power to even crack these bad boys. I have to put a fan on the reciever so it wont blow up. I have cooked 2 amps so far. My advise is, if you want these make sure you balls your balls in your hand when you turn them on for the first time.

PEACE! and keep that shiznit real!
