Short review:

I received these Friday evening and after unpacking everything and getting the behemoths of a sub up the stairs, I was pooped.

My first listen Immediately surprised me why I had pretty much sold my klipsch before even hearing these speakers. The compression driver stood out so much upon first listen. It was so much warmer than my klipsch horn. The vocals in "breathe no more" were wonderful. Amy Lees voice was not overpowering in any way. It sounded so warm and probably what it was supposed to sound like. My klipsch made it sound bright and almost fatiguing.

Tried some Rock, dubstep, and a couple movies. The DVD of open range of the gunfight scene was very very nice. Gunshots rang out like I felt they were intended. Metallica's fade to black was also nice. The guitar was in no way pushing the limits of ear bleeding. It was so much easier to listen at high volumes without the harshness or brightness. Alice in chains live (nutshell) was spectacular. This was also another song that can get bright with my klipsch. The crowd cheering and clapping was usually the culprit. Again warm vocals and guitar with the cinemas.

Dubstep violin was great. The violin was not overly harsh sounding on this track either.

After running audyssey xt32 with just the subs and cinemas, I found that the cinemas are very very efficient/sensitive.

Audyssey found them at 70hz so I bumped them to 80.

All on all, I am a very happy camper. I initially wanted these for surrounds and was going to custom build my mains with double 12s, no reason after hearing them. They fill my 450 square foot room(30x15) very nicely.

The symptoms always come back, enjoy remission.

Damn those subs look awesome! Would love to hear them. Tv looks great too! Ever planning a projector?

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

Well, I talked to Alex yesterday and it seems that the rest of the cinema speakers are on time and might be delivered next week. Crossing fingers.

Yeah. The ones that are currently in my room were supposed be surrounds. I was going to have double 12s made to serve as mains but after hearing these, I didn't need it. I got two more and the center built to complete the setup.

They certainly do nice custom work there. I've seen a lot of custom cabinets out of eD as of late. Cool stuff.

I didn't realize it was going into your cabinet. Aesthetically it'll likely look fantastic. But good luck, as there are some acoustic caveats to be addressed, when placing a loudspeaker into a cabinet.

Looking forward to seeing/reading more.


Good luck

Is that a second row of seats above? Must have missed the addition, thought you only had one row.
