I for one will not compare the Phase 1 Pioneer speakers, to certain brand speakers. > However for me
and a lot of other owners, we consider the Pioneer phase 2 speakers a step up. I will not/do not, put the
phase 1 on equal terms with the phase 2. > For me, the Phase 2 have opened up more, and with better
detail and a bigger soundstage. They still will not jump out at you, however the new line has opened up
the presentation. ALso for the speaker size, they have good bass, that is tight and articulate.
It all comes down to preference, choice and taste - however, for me they have raised the bar, and hold
up well against some more main-stream popular brands. I will continue to reccomend them as a option.
I have owned many speakers with a so-call small 5-1/4 inch woofer - that performed overall better, than
a lot of 6-1/2 inch woofers.
