I bought these speakers as a second pair for my main system or for possible future use in a second bedroom system. They are amazingly smooth and accurate and produce better bass than one would expect from their small size. The bass you are getting is real bass and not the boomy bass of comparably priced ported systems. I have now gone full circle back to acoustic suspension speakers (NHT, of course) because of their superior bass reproduction. The Super Ones also have great imaging. They are more accurate than many much more expensive speakers. The Super Ones are an exceptional value.
