Hello Everyone
I would like to hear if you have ever heard and what you like dislike about these speakers
the reason i ask is im wondering if the mid bass will have a ok sound down to 60 hz. I know they are dual 6.5 mids if i run them sealed i shold. but i looked online and youtube but have not seen all that much on them.
I know they are from germany so maybe some of the memeber over seas can let me know

I own a set but still waiting for them from joerg so maybe in the next couple week i will have them

also i would like to know how much power are you giving them


thanks again
Mike

Yes they were very punchy indeed but still musical, I allowed them to breath in the whole front door which seems to add a bit too, these are what I had...

Just an FYI the wood screws it looks like you are using do damage to speaker frames when they are torqued down. A Pan-head style is better as it has a flat surface which doesn't bend the speaker frame when tightened down.
