Hi everyone. I am both surprised and happy to see all of the new posts about Onsia since I last contributed to this forum. I just want to share a few things to you that might address some of the concerns here.
Onsia speakers retail for about $150 each. We are not trying to contend with other high-end audio companies. The speakers are being marketed as a décor solution and not as a product that competes with Infinity, Klipsch or Aperion speakers.
That said, they do sound pretty good. As has been pointed out, sound and speaker preference is subjective. Compared to other comparably priced speakers, the Onsia speakers offer some features and benefits that are unique. Most notably, they completely disappear in your walls.
About the frequency response and technology, we have an on-axis frequency graph comparison of Onsia and two other mainstream speakers on the website here: (www) .onsiaideas.com/onsia-speakers-technical-information.htm
NXT technology operates much differently from a traditional cone diaphragm speaker in that it emits microscopic vibrations instead of piston-like pulses. The NXT transducers excite the panel, which emits sound waves much like an acoustic guitar. This is a radical break from traditional speaker technology and I understand why many of you are skeptical. Please remember, just because something is new doesn’t necessarily mean it is bad…
All of the posters on this thread except two are not associated with our company (ACP, the manufacturer). Only “sonic chameleon” (the speaker’s inventor) and I have any professional connection with the Onsia product. All other positive (and negative) posts are from unaffiliated people.
And “abatardi,” our offer from my original post still stands. Contact me at 920-886-6754 or dblurton@acpideas if you want to take us up on the offer.
As to new user and troll accounts, I hope you understand that as these speakers were just introduced to market a few months ago, there will be some new users who choose to comment on them. As a company, sure we check the search engines for the word, “Onsia” and see what the blogs and forums are saying about our product. We would be foolish not to take consumers, customers, audiophiles and others who comment seriously.
Boo, the “deep bass” rumbling sound you heard should stop in time. The speakers take 40+ hours to break in properly and will sound better as they break in. Alternatively, as you only have two Onsia speakers for a surround system, you may want to consider a subwoofer for your setup. As I’m sure you know, the “.1” in a 5.1 or 7.1 system is the subwoofer. Any speaker setup that uses a surround sound configuration that doesn’t include a subwoofer will not sound right. The Onsia speakers are probably trying to reproduce the frequencies that would normally be sent to a sub. Onsia speakers are not designed for that purpose. If you are still having trouble in this regard in a month or so, let me know and we will do whatever we can to meet your needs. Thank you all – Dave Blurton. ACP/Onsia
