  • Overall Sound:

Pros:Gets loud, sounds good loud, looks somewhat impressive

Cons:Sounds not-so-good if not loud, front panels screw up the sound, grills easy to break

The Bottom Line: People pay too much for this thing used. For $150 you could get a pair of Paradigm Mini, which sound much better and have similar specs.


I got this cheap on eBay my first year of college, and just sold it after 4 years. The front grill of one was broken in a week, because the plastic is cheap. Eventually I noticed that the whole front panel, which is also cheap plastic, viabrates a lot and that screws up the sound. You can mod it to improve the sound a little bit.

This is a nice college party speaker, because the louder you turn it up the better it sounds. Pair it up with an 80-125 watt amp, and you could really kick some good party tunes without apology. They never burned up up on me, but then my amp was only 60 watts.... (it was a Harman/Kardon)

At normal volumes it sounds pretty poor to my ears. I also had some RS-1s, and they were a bit better with the low volumes, and also had a bit more sparkle.
