VERY efficient with huge dynamics. Nothing stands out as wrong or irritating. Mid range is very natural for an 8' 2 way. Imaging is pretty flat - no depth, but the stage is good left to right. Super punchy Bass - but not very deep. Great as a LOUD speaker, and I mean loud! Very VERY easy to drive - with the current craze in low wattage tube amps, these might be a perfect compact alternative to the large horn loaded cabinets that seem to be making a comeback with all the tube gear. A true rock and roll speaker that I use in my garage to blast out tunes across several acres during the summer. These would also make a great DJ speaker - that actually sounds good.

These 20 year old speakers are still going strong and compete well with other similar and newer speakers. They have a reasonable bottom end but do benefit greatly from a sub-woofer. Otherwise they'd be 10 out of 10. They are also best for near-field application, though they can fill a smallish control room if you don't want rock concert levels. Accurate but not harsh, overall a rather pleasant sounding set of studio monitors.
