    Strength:

    Great value Clean sound with nice midrange warmth Efficient Swiveling tweeter Solid construction Nice aesthetic design

    Weakness:

    Lack of an enclosure (these are pretty rare or nonexistent at this price point) make the bass response sensitive to where they are mounted.

    I installed a few of these for a whole-house audio distribution system and am very pleased. These are some great speakers. They are extremely efficient so they fill the room with the rather anemic power supplied by multi-zone amplifiers. And they have a very clear sound to them, which is particularly important for background listening where there is a fair amount of ambient noise. Packaging was exceptional (I didn't expect much at this price point - $189/pair) and I was delighted with how detailed the instructions were; I didn't have any installation issues. They accepted my oversized 12-gauge wire without issue. And I’m happy with how they look once installed - no ugly logos, relatively flush, good trim, and a nice white color (some speakers are a little yellow). I don't listen too critically to these, but they sound good to my ear. Treble is clear without being harsh/bright. The midrange is suitably warm for my tastes. And the bass extension is good, so good balance and overall design. The only drawback I've found so far is that these don't have an included enclosure. Depending on the wall/ceiling cavity they are installed into, the bass response may resonate at a particular frequency. This is pretty typical of all but the best, and far more expensive models (Triad, Snell), so this is really a minor caveat. For the price, I feel these are an excellent value.

    Similar Products Used: Klipsch, B&W, Snell, Triad, M&K, SpeakerCraft, etc. These are most similar (in design and sound) to Klipsch.
