Bottom Line:   
I got this speakers really cheap at a sale. The G series is out of production. This particular batch came from the USA to Denmark then to Singapore kewl.
2" Fabric tweeter and 5" Woofer. Midrange is severly crippled but still exists.
The manual says placement should be 12" away from wall (rear firing). At such postition the bass is too faint for my liking. Loud and clear treble, on some tracks may swamp the vocals.

What do you expect at this price? 80 Singabucks is around less that 40 pounds or around 50 USD.

Sounds good for: easy going jazz, folk rock, simple vocals
Sounds really bad: alternative, heavy metal, trashy stuff

3 stars for value.
