Bottom Line:   
NOt many ppl want to talk about this speaker now. Kind of outdated. But i bought it 2nd hand for about $200 usd. It is way better than my old unknown brand speaker. I only use a cheap OFC cable but it already sounds amazing but some how i think there's still some improvement. It's not my taste i think. Really boomy sound. Mid and high are ok. Maybe it's because of my speaker, i think it's just not very musical. But it's really really great for home cinema. and for this price...GOOD

Bottom Line:   
These speakers replaced my Kef Cresta 3's in teh summer of last year. After a bried break in period, I was enchanted to hear so much detail flowing from these great speakers. The performance belies the price. The Kef's just do not campare. When placed correctly and bi-wired the soundstaging and imaging is unrivaled at this price. Bass control and weight are very substantial. Use the spike provided for best support. Much recommended.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these speakers 4 months ago and they were perfect(for me). But after someone(definitely not a friend of mine any more) hit the speaker so that it fell, there is a problem with it:
When I play Dire Straits Local Hero theme Wild Theme there is a resonance in the speaker which I can feel. The whole housing is fibrating for a very short time, but very clear. This only appears when I turn the amplifier loud.
Is this a reason to let my dealer take a look at the speaker, or is this problem not clear enough for a dealer to check the speakers?

Thanks a lot.
nb. Sorry, I know my english is realy bad.

faced or unfaced 703's .... that is the question....

I'm starting to think about ordering a batch of Owens Corning 703 sound absorption boards. The current treatment that I've done to my listening room, is to put R-19 in the 6 inches above the cabinets that line the back of my listening room. I'm thinking that I'll next try putting in sound absorbi ... Read More »

Owens Corning 703

Hey guys. Just wanted to let you know I listed a 6 panel case of Owens Corning series 703 on ebay. The number is 170211659363. This was left over from my home theatre installation. I'll post pictures later. This stuff is perfect for making your own acoustic panels. Thanks!Read More »

B&w 703

I'm planning an entirely new system and recently listened to the B&W 703s. I listened to them via several integrated amps but the two amps I was considering for purchase (Music Hall A25.2 or Rotel RA-1062) weren't available for a demo. One amp is a 50 watt the other a 60 watt. I don't turn up the vo ... Read More »

B&W 703 Floorstanders

Any other B&W 703 owners out there? In my system they have been a huge disappointment. I find them to be very bright and edgy. The FST midrange seems to be too out front especially on vocals.I actually like the woofers and tweeter in the 703.The FST is one of B&W's claims to fame.I have mid priced R ... Read More »

New amp for B&W 703's

Find that my B&W 703's are a lil more bright and forward than I would like. Have them hooked up to a B&K Ref 200.2 via Audioquest CV6 and CV4's (Bi-wired) CV6's on base end. Using a Denon 3803 as my pre. Have a question about MFG's recommended power handling as well. B&W says "50W †... Read More »
