Well, as I said in the Latest Purchase thread in General, I've got them in place and have given them the first test. I'm not 'blown away', but they seem decent. The bass is powerful enough without being boomy, the highs are clear and don't seem to distort and aren't especially piercing. It's hard to tell with one of the mids out of commission; going to have to do some more listening. I don't master/mix/listen at very loud volumes typically so I'm more concerned with how they do at lower output levels.
Also my full-size mixer is still under repair so I'm using my backup 'mini-mixer
' which may be affecting the sound somewhat.
They are pretty tidy though, don't look
worn out or abused at all:
^^ Positioned for testing only! I will put them in a more sensible place... when I figure out how. Wasn't expecting them to be this big from the advert photo!
I'm driving them with this Sony hi-fi stack I picked up for next to nothing. It looks a little chincy but the manual
rates it at 95W/120W for the front outputs. This should be good enough?? There are so many different ways mfgrs write their power ratings it's really hard to determine what the spec actually is
It came with some extra speakers if I feel like playing around too:
I'm well under $200NZ into this whole setup at the moment. I still think I've done pretty well.
