Bottom Line:   
As the creator of these speakers, I would tend to take excessive pride in their performance, but to give you an accurate idea of my first loudspeaker. The C1's are called "Macro-Monitors" because their construction gives an appearance between towers and monitors. The C1's provide excellent resolution at all volume levels, but the tweeter tends to be a touch harsh with some very-dynamic material. Bass is controlled and relatively clean, but lacks in ultra-huge output (it uses one 12 inch in a acoustic-suspension). Midrange has lots of feel and air. The frequency response of the C1's are quite smooth, with slight bumps in the 250-300Hz and 2-3kHz ranges (but nothing very noticable, and certainly not too objectionable). Overall, I am impressed with these speakers. They hold their own (and better) against most speakers in their price range, and can be compared to speakers like the Von Schweikert 4.5's, Theil CS6's, B&W's 802, and the Wilson Watt/Puppy's. Hopefully, I will be able to post a picture here, and get a web site going soon. Anyone wishing further information can drop an e-mail Ryan Malcolm

(I only give my speakers 4 stars becase my next models give much higher potential, and there are other loudspeakers that have some better qualities (Von Schweikert 6, Wilson Slamm)
