One of the worst speakers I've ever owned over the past 30 years of owning many speakers. I've had Pioneer, Klipsch, MB Quart, ADS, Dynaudio, Dynaco, Tannoy, JBL, and even other Realistic models. The Mach Ones have no bass. The cabinets are too small for the 16 woofer. Mids and tweet are nothing to write home about. My Klipsch KG 3.5(8 two-way) easily blew the Mach Ones(4024) out of the water in bass as well as all other aspects. Way overrated and overpriced. They only look nice. Anyone that says they sound good obviously has never owned anything good.

Great speakers. Had mine since 1982.

I am in search of the 4024-A owners manual

re: Mach One

It was a 1 page insert included with each speaker.
Not worth having really. It showed the frequency curve versus the settings on the knobs and that was about it. Might run across it in the future, looking through old literature and will post.
What I did not like about my 2 Mach One pairs I bought were the highs were too harsh for long listening hrs. Now I insist on round domed tweeters and Mids if I can find them like in the AR3a.

Audio karma has mods for the 4024,4024-a and
The 4029 I did them to my 4024's and wow blew
Me away! Deep tight low end mid's and highs are
Much less harsh they sound like klipch forte
Amazing sound. I never would of guessed they
Could sound that good. I'm using my AKAI am-2850
And they drain it and ask for more, but I also find
Their very precise at low volume as well
Thank you for responding have a good one.0
