Bottom Line:   
I inherited these towers from my brother and WOW! I can't believe Sony's price point on these! With a powered sub these speakers have been the reason for hopping dance parties, killer movie nights and amazing music jam sessions. I have loved every minute of owning them. The only downside would be that they are big... but what decent floor speaker isn't?!

I would recommend these or similar newer models for any audio enthusiast with a budget!

Bottom Line:   
My original review of this speaker was removed with no explanation. Let me reiterate that although the speakers are fine for the price, that there is practically no useful output from the tweeters - all the highs are coming from the midrange. This is true for the model SSM F400H too (which I set up for a friend). No, I did not burn out the tweeters - in these or any other speakers I have owned. This is not to say that the speakers produce no highs; the extreme highs are simply somewhat muted and this may even be aggreable to some listeners.

In a word "wow". These speakers are awsome. I originally bought them to run second audio in my bedroom. That project has been lagging so just out of curiosity I replaced my mains with them in my home theater. I loved the way they sounded in the store. But once I hooked them up to my reciever I was amazed. I mean, yeah there are alot of speakers out there that would blow these out of the water. But you have to keep the price in mind. I don't know of any speakers that could hang with these in this price range. Also the speakers look great given the same reason. "PRICE". Anyone trying to compare these speakers to high end audio doesn't know that much about home theater. Or high end electronics. That would be like comparing my Sony STR-DA7ES to one of the home theater in a box recievers. You just can't. I am very happy with them and as soon as I finish changing out my Cerwin Vega surround system for Mirage, they will deffinetly be going in my room.

Excellent speakers for the cost. They look flashy and expensive when they really aren't. The sound is impressive considering the circumstances.

Bottom Line:   
These are great speakers and very underpriced for floor speakers. Anyone who says they don't have enough bass isn't driving them hard enough. You get a decent amp on these speakers and drive them hard enough they WILL give out some nice bass.
