Bottom Line:   
This is a very well made speaker, treble is crystal clear and the bass is good. Midrange sounds are natural and strong and these speakers have a high power handling. These speakers have incredibly high sensitivity (SPL 101 DB @ 2.83V). That kind of output rivals many professional high end speakers. People complain about them being overpowering in 5.1,6.1 or other surround souund applications but that is because they are not configured properly to their systems. With the right adjustment of the handy built in tweeter level control, as well as some adjustments and tweaking of their output levels on your amp/receiver these speakers should perform fabuolusly.

Bottom Line:   
Overall this is a great speaker. the heights on these will make your ears bleed before distortion. Bass however is lacking at lower volumes, but once you have them cranked up it gets a lot better.
the tweeter adjust control is a handy function especially for smaller rooms and for fine tuning the speakers for use with a surround sound system. Over all these speakers are very good. Plus i recieved them as a gift so I can't complain about them at that price!!

Bottom Line:   
These speakers sound great but I might be a bit biased. I only use them for Dolby Digital 5.1 surround movies and since they are voice-matched to my SM 165 surround and SM Video they are a perfect compliment to my overall system. As all Infinity speakers they have great high and midrange quality. In fact, they are a bit bright at lower volumes but do give good base once the volumes cranked. However, you can adjust the high frequency and that is a great feature for smaller rooms.

I have the decibels turned down on my my receiver for these speakers because they overpower the Center Speaker dialog.

Overall these speakers are great for the Audio Enthusiast who doesn't have the cash to be an AudioPhile.

Bottom Line:   
Got these at UBID for cheap, but one grille was missing.
Infinity replaced for free with absolutely no hassle.
These things are huge, and probably too big for the room they are in, but the treble is crisp and the midrange is pretty well defined. The bass is extremely lacking at lower volumes , but improves as you crank it up. My OLD cerwin vega 10" two-ways blow these away on bass.
Sound stage is just OK, but since they are so big it is to be expected.
Imaging is also just better than average.
BUT, these things will play LOUD and CLEAR. I am not kidding. I think you would have to get a BIG pair of Klipsch to equal the spl levels that these can produce.
I use them (for now) with an ONKYO A-809 Integrated Amp (105 wpc)and Rotel cd player. I am "upgrading" to Adcom or something pretty soon with a lot more power. I can only imaginge how loud these things will play.

Bottom Line:   
I have had these speakers for 2 1/2 years. I first used them with an old Technics Reciver. The speakers highs sounded poor due to the reciver after buying an Dennon AVR 3300 Reciver. The highs are verry HI but but do not cut short with a good amp or in any way poor. Just they are loudly high, clear and strait (strait meaning, that don't produced a wide range of tones in the tweeter) I think that these speakers are verry good for home video/audio and most kinds of music except classic music(just aren't fast enoughf). They have a GREAT trebble but NO bass unless in a corner. I added a Paridime sub and found that I never had any bass that was worth speaking of. They do not fade under high volume for long periods of time either. They may not be as fast as JM Lab or Legacys fine higs but are great for $200 each. They will work great with most systems because of the efficency. Also having the SM center channel and listing to DTS and DVD a lot, they make a verry super sound stage. So over all they make a great start of a system and will last twice as long as you own them.
