OK guys/gals, I did buy the silver Energy FPS (3 for the front L-C-R, and 2 LCRs for the surrounds). I have been breaking in the front 3 via a mix CD; however, I have been pretty dissapointed with the sound. I guess you can't turn lead into gold, and expect 4.5" speakers to sound like 6"...even if the name and quality is supposedly there. I have my Audyssey (on my Onkyo 605) set to Full Range for the break in period. The break in period has taught me what I should already know....that these speakers can not accurately preform below 120hz.... even though MFR claims a freq response down to 60hz (+/- 3dB). I will run Audyssey tomorrow to see what it thinks.
Yes, I do have a sub...yes, they may be fine with HT...and yes, I already had a feeling that these speakers would not work well for music listening. I am glad 95% of their use will be for HT in my application. So far, I kind of liked the sound of my affordable Polk TC615i in-walls.

Bass...i don't think so. I actually like the tweeters on the Polks a bit more
