I am not a happy owner yet of JBL ES90 speakers, big floorstanders with 8" woofers. My first system to build up.
I use Onkyo 807 with them, don't have other electronics yet and need more cables to make my plasma's audio to play through it.
The only way I was able to play them as of today, is FM radio.
The problem is the bass is so flat, even on max bass set up and different play modes by Onkyo. When it plays, I feel almost no air pressure when put my hand close to the woofers and its "membranes" display no visible motion like I saw on videos. My computer Bose (no pun intended
) speakers play deeper bass.
I know they need time to brake in. They have played for days, it looks the same. I checked the polarity of wires. What's wrong? Is it just because of the radio? More time to brake in?
P.S. To make things not better, one of the speakers came a bit dented so I am going to exchange it.
