that's probably what would sell me on them.
Recently my nephew, an Eagle Scout no less, and one of the nicest, kindest, humblest 21 year old gentlemen you could ever have the pleasure to know, comes into my home and like a complete bonehead, the exact opposite of what he is, drops his immense key ring on top of my gloss black JLAudio F212. When I saw the keys there I almost had a canary. If he was a dickhead, I'd have blasted him for being so incredibly thoughtless and stupid. But because he did it so innocently and just didn't think, I said absolutely nothing. I took the key ring and placed it elsewhere.
Last week I have friends over and my buddy's wife, who is a bonehead, places her cheap pocketbook, with those round brass feet thingies, on top of my Klipsch speakers. Again, I couldn't believe anyone could be that stupid. I also did not want to make her feel bad and so I moved it.
Now on to the topic.
You figured out I have Klipsch. First time I've owned them. I also have Revel F208's in another room.
The Klipsch are great sounding speakers and will play to what seems like stadium levels without any breakup whatsoever.
I've auditioned recently GE T1's, having owned DefTec towers with built in subs and so was curious.
They are exceptionally smooth, have great integrated bass, and an uncanny ability to place a singer's voice dead center between the towers so that it literally hangs in space. For a music system hand's down they win.
For home theater, if you like to play it loud, Klipsch all day long.
