I understand that we all have budgets, and the Pioneers are one of the best budget speakers I have heard. Ive heard the Klipsch, polks and pioneers in best buy and by far the pioneers to me had the best overall sound. there are limitations to what a speaker at these prices can do, but IMO, the pioneers are a better speaker overall.
PS, I think Jims post #9 hits all the nails on the head.
