Can't afford anything else and have not heard anything else, but they don't sound terrible. Help me with a general consensus- are they crap (because RTI's seem to be what people are getting), and if they are, why? Is their bass, midrange, and treble all lacking? Are they an OK intro speaker? Believe me, I wish I could get better stuff, but are they not mentioned much here because they are cheap and pretty much just suck?
