Bottom Line:   
I purchased the pair for $469.00 and found them to be worth the price. The highs are really clear but they lack bass considering the huge 12" they have. It look's really nice on my room, very modern, i just love it.

Bottom Line:   
Although these speakers do not produce a great deal of bass with moderate power, they sound great with a good amp. I used to power these with a 100w JVC receiver and got great sound out of them, but after hooking up my Carver 250watt amp these speakers produced greater bass than my sony 120w 12" sub. excellent for space saving in a dorm.

Bottom Line:   
An outstanding value for the $155 that I paid and I really have no major complaints. Overall, the sound quality is excellent and these speakers faithfully reporduce a wide variety of music. The sound is nice and broad thanks to the two midsand the side firing woofers. I was pleaseantly surprised by the highs. Given Yamaha's reputation for a bright sound, I was cocncerned that these speakers might tend too much toward the high end - not so, they have a nice balance.

I was a little disappointed in the bass. Just like many other reviewers, I expected more powerful bass from 12" woofers. In addition, the base gets a little muddy when the speakers are processing a lot of low end sound. This is due in part to the bass reflex design and also in part to the fact that my living room (ceramic tile floor) is very unforgiving.

Overall, I highly reccomend these speakers if you can get them for under $225. once you get above that price range, you may be able to do better with something else.

Bottom Line:   
ive only had these for a couple of days and i definatly think their worth the money. these speakers do have bass but not a lot. this is only probably because i'm only putting 30 watts into them (i'm getting a new receiver soon). i'm sure they would sound much better with more watts. these are great for movies and music. for the $155 i paid for them i think they are great speakers. buy these now!
