Pros: The sound quality, especially bass. Look great with polished laquer, and have a higher "Wife Acceptance Factor" than most!
Cons: None: only thing I could say is that they are not condicuve to wall mounting if used as surrounds.
I was amazed at the sound quality of these speakers. They sounded better than many speakers costing 2X-3X the price! They blew away a pair of B&W speakers pricest at $1,500.00. The passive radiator add bass that you normally don't experience in a speaker this size. They look great too! I bought these intending to use them as surrounds, but while moving used them as fronts for a temporary system, and I was amazed at the sound. I have never really experienced DefTech before, but now I'm starting to get hooked on them.
