Bottom Line:   
I just bought a set of these speakers from my step dad for $100 and there like brand new. I hooked them up to my onkyo stereo system I bought back in 1997 with the cabinet and amplifier and these speakers sound amazing couldn't be happier the best $100 I've spent in along time.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a pair of DCM KX12 Series II loudspeakers after hearing them at my uncles house. I couldn't believe how much sound they put out for only being pushed by a 80watt (per channel) amplifier. I now have two sets of these and I still love them several years later. The only reason I gave them a 4 star overall rating is because the imaging isn't very good. Unless you place these in the perfect spot in your room the treble and mid-range are not nearly as loud as the bass as you walk around your room. However, sit in the sweet spot and you'll be blown away. These get so loud on my Harmon Kardon amp (40 watts per channel) that you can scream at someone standing next to you and they will struggle to hear you. Distortion? none at all! I've have yet to cause the internal circuit breaker to go off on these speakers. They go all the way up and don't distort, but that's because of the Harmon Kardon amplifier, to. I can't imagine having a quality amp in the 125watt range pushing these.... I'm pretty sure that would equate to hearing loss within a few days. Movies sound phenomenal, electronic music sounds precise and exactly like it was meant to, 80's rock sucks so I don't know about that, all you need for that crap is some wal-mart specials.

All in all, if you can even find these for sale somewhere, they are completely worth it. Everyone that's ever heard these has tried to get their hands on them. NO! I'm not selling... I'll keep these till the day their foam surrounds deteriorate and Decware says they can't do anything for me. I'm sold on DCM KX Series. My 5.1 system consist of four KX12 cabinets and a KX center channel (all series 2) being pushed from a Harmon Kardon AVR110 Receiver. Amazing sound!

Bottom Line:   
I love these speakers and still can't find any newer speakers with the base output these speakers have. These speakers are hard to find, but if you are a movie buff these are excellent for theater set ups as front speakers. The bass will blow you away...there is no need for sub woofers with these speakers.
