Okay, so it's years... that's more descriptive than "a while". So yeah, that's not the problem

Sometimes placement, like too close to a wall or too far away from the back wall can affect bass.

I have LSI 15s in my living room and 703s in my home theater. (I also have LSI 7s that I use for rear effect speakers.)

Physically the new LSIMs are larger. In fact, once on a stand, the are more imposing than the LSI 15s, which is why the 15s are now in my living room. The 703s on stands did not pass the WAF.

I think most would give the nod to the new LSIM line. The 703s do an amazing job with vocals. The 15s and 703s are in different rooms and I have never done a side by side, but I would say the 703s are brighter. When watching a well mastered movie they are spectacular. If the movie isn't mastered well I sometimes suffer from listening fatigue.

The 15s don't do voices/vocals like the 703, but where they shine is mid bass. The mid bass on the 15s is so nice that when listening to music I would let the 15s handle most of the bass as opposed to my Rythmik D15SE.

Lastly, the build quality of the LSIM line seems incredible. I haven't removed the main driver and looked inside, but they are heavy, and the wood finish is beautiful.
