Is this part of the speaker's character? or am I used to listening to crappy over-bright HTIB sound and can't appreciate the higher quality natural sound? Would appreciate any input on this.
I would double check your placement - and also check the wire hook up (not crossed),
make sure postive is to positive, and negative to negative. I do not claim that these
are the greatest on the planet - however, something does not seem right. Also, check
the processing on the receiver. And yes, the bass is very good.
Make sure the speaker has room from the back, aim for 12" > and free from corner walls,
aim for 30" > and that the front of the speaker is a little in front of the TV and stand, and
any cabinets or shelves.
After checking everything - give it time.
Also, regardless of speaker break in belief - it takes time to get use to hearing a more
accurate speaker, or higher up speaker - based on what you may have owned in the past.
They are not voiced to really jump out at you, like a lot of entry level speakers. And, they
will not have the dipping and peaky midrange frequency response, along with the distortion
that colors the sound - like a lot of cheapy HTIB speakers.
