Strength:

They're very flat, extremely small, hefty, impressive power handling for something that small (supposedly rated 150 watts). Also these days you can sometimes find them used for almost free. Actually I don't know what year these are, that information has faded.

Weakness:

At medium volumes anything below 150 hz distorts so hard that I'd call it clipping and there is no low base, I ran a frequency sweep to test... I'm going to put a crossover on them to fix that. I wouldn't be happy with these without a crossover and a subwoofer (I have the subwoofer, a crossover with a highpass is ordered). But with those I expect them to beat my (also old) Klipsch kg1 bookshelf speakers because they're already close, and I'm getting deeper base from the subwoofer. I'd give them 5 stars for the very tiny size if they didn't need a filter to stop the clipping.

Strength:

Bass, Midranges and highs. Clean Sound. Price

Weakness:

None

Compared these Marbl's to both JBL indoor bookself speakers with 8" woofer and 1" tweeter as well as a pair of Acoustic Reserach indoor/outdoor speakers.
The Marbl's sounded as good if not better then the JBL's and the AR's could hold a candle to them. Flat out better Bass, mid's and High's. Felt clean and easy to listen to. The AR's are being sold to make way for another pair of the Marbl's if I can find them. Excellent speaker that will make you smile.
