Well, I finally broke down and ordered a set of these a few months ago. Heres how it went....
These speakers have left me a little befuddled.
In short, I have owned the Alpine SPX17 Pro Speakers (retail at about 500$) and the Focal KR2 k2 components (retail about $700).....the tweeters on this $160 set are putting these other sets to shame.
Its a crime that these companys are getting rich off these inferior sounding speakers.
I know alot of people in here wont believe this and thats unfortunate, you stand to save a boatload of money AND get better sound by purchasing these speakers instead of some ridiculously over priced mega-brand that is heavily marketed.
The star of this set is the tweeter.
The music that it produces is just so, SO open, whole, airy, uber-detailed and pleasing to the ear. Amazingly, there is nothing harsh about it (focal, I am looking at you). I cant get over how great this tweeter sounds. I go out on long drives just to listen to music through these speakers.
These speakers SHINE with power. They sound ok with the recommended 100 watts per channel, but I am feeding each one 300 real RMS watts per channel, and they sing. Do they sing beautifully. I used to be a volume monger, now I dont even turn the volume up, because these speakers just tell me everything in such a beautiful voice, they do not need to shout.I am even thinking of getting rid of my rear 7 by 10 speakers, because these front tweeters are just that satisfying.
The woofer is merely ok. I managed to blow one of them pretty easily. Theres nothing special about the woofers sound either, and I do not use it in my setup, I use a different brand.
The crossover is simply impeccable.It Sends the absolute perfect frequencies to the tweeter.
I love these tweeters and crossovers, they are worth every single penny and more. Thank you, Cadence
