Personally I'd say those are the best speakers you can get for the price. It's pretty crazy. Oh, and don't forget to put up a review. People always forget to do that!

Erich,

Yeah I'll take some better ones and send them to you. The original ones in the original build thread on your forum look much nicer but it doesn't hurt to have multiples smile.gif

I will most definitely be crossin to a sub, just wanted to help the suspension break in a little bit wink.gif These will be used as surrounds which they will obviously just loaf along with.

These really are crazy good for the price. I'm very happy so far. After they have about a week or so of break in ill post up a review on the site. Want to give them plenty of time to get broken in.

Scott

Skeeter - those do look excellent. nice job

Haha nice! They are super stiff suspensions on the woofers but some skrillex did get them movin a bit. Didn't hit super low but they were hitting hard! And thanks! How do you like yours? I don't think I've read through your impressions yet in your thread.

i like the 8s, and my Dad really likes them (i built them for him). people seemed to enjoy them and be surprised by them at the last G2G at Gorilla83s as well. I built the 12s and 10s for myself, but the sound is similar, clear and detailed, and loud

Very cool! I'm not surprised that people are surprised by them. So tiny but big sound smile.gif

Watching Grimm right now in 2-channel stereo with the Karmas as L/R. I had to go up to the center channel and put my ear to it to make sure it wasn't on. They're throwing a perfect center image. Yeah baby!!

Lol... When I first listened to my SEOS speakers I did the same thing. I could have sworn the center channel was on but nope...it was off. Freaky!

Those look very nice! Well done!

It has me thinking that maybe I should have gone with these over my Jack of All Trades 8 build, mostly because it would have been a much easier build with the precut baffles. Plus, they're only 2" taller than mine...but a little more expensive, too. smile.gif

Thanks! I don't know that kit. This one was really not too tough although I did struggle with the crossover a bit. I think the end result was well worth the effort though! I'm really digging their sound!!
