Bottom Line:   
This cheap priced gem performs well in the surround category, with its quadrapole feature it surely deliver spacious surround effect, don't know why it falls in the main speaker category, by its architecture its surely fits the surround speaker family. Rear keyhole port does saves a lot of money coz you don't have to buy some wall bracket to mount it one a pair of screws is all the u need for a mount.
Don't expect this product to give u some BASS BOOST coz it only cover an 80Hz low pitch compared to some of its same class which are below this range. So its not for main speaker performance during stereo for it lack bass, but it does promise something in the mids and highs which ideal for ambience sound.
The power of this speaker is limited 80watts ideal for small and medium rooms.
If you want to buy this gem, well sad to say they cut making this, baby.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these instead of the ones that "matched" tne Infinity Composition Preludes that I use on the front end of my home theatre. These speakers are decent for movie surround. I think that they were designed for ProLogic set-ups and would be good in that limited context. But, for Dolby Digital and dts programs they don't cut it. Moreover, listening to the bonus dts surround audio song on the Eagles "Hell Freezes Over" DVD is truly excruciating. When the soundstage swings to the rear...Yuck. Imagining SACD 5.1 or DVD-Audio on these would be even worse. If you are watching HiFi-VHS tapes through a circa 1994 receiver, then these are perfect for you. All others look elsewhere.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased my first pair of the Infinity QPS-1 speakers about three years ago
for my main theatre system and was greatly impressed. the quadrophonic
sound that comes from unit allows you to hear things that would have gone
unnoticed. I am building a complete home theatre system in my basement -
and of course - these speakers are a must to have. The unfortunate part is
that Inifinity has quit making them. I was able to find the last pair that
Accoustic Sound Design had. I even would have paid more, but only cost
me $225 ($100 cheaper than my first pair cost me). Accoustic Sound Design
had them shipped out same day and received within five business days.
Fantastic speakers for surround - I just wish Infinity still made them so that
others could enjoy

Bottom Line:   
I am somewhat dissappointed with this purchase. The sound diffusion is good; however, the sound is very lacking. They generally sound tinny or muffled to me. I don't know why, but, they tend to play some tracks better than others.

They do look good on the wall though. Not too many other speakers will be able to be placed on my wall and not be noticed.
