While my visit with the 10.3 was a short one (2 weeks), I was able to garner some quick impressions on these speakers.
1. Bass, and lots of it. This speaker is truly room dependent for reinforcement. Move back, back...baaaaack, and BAM! There it is.
In an open room these may give say 40Db -3Db, but reinforce them and you get good body and bass speed. A little bloom, and dontcha dare boost the bass, just let the source play through and adjust the speakers to your room.
2. Upper end response. This where it gets tricky, because the treble sounded a bit harsh to others, while I found the upper end fine for me. I like the ticks of a high hat.
3. Midbass. nearly absent, and an error of omission. Somehow I got the vocals, but not the midbass??
Still no midbass. Bummer. I like the midbass, like moose playing upper bass Tommy. These missed that.
Fair enough for the 450$ paid (new). They do not hang out in the middle of the room, but thrive in what they do close to the wall. Not all speakers like this.
The finish is acceptable, curved cabs and all. Nice look. I call it good WAF, and not much more, cause Hermins Hermits will let you down on these.
