These are great speakers for the money, assuming you didn't pay retail. I own a pair of 315HO's and my dad own's a pair of AR1's. Both pairs of speakers offer very similar sound and tone quality. I'm pretty sure they changed the type of glue that they...

Footprint, sound, value, BASS, works great with home theater (2 15" powered subs), adjustable gain for the subs. AR Stands behind their warranty

If you drive the subs too hard, the surrounds come unglued. I've replaced 5 subs so far. AR has given me no problem at all. The pots for the gain on the subs should have been recessed in the cabinet. Mine got pushed in, (but they still work)

Good overall sound for rock. Critical listening is not their strong suite. Bass kicks ass.

Bass

mid-bass requires equalization to correct

As with any speakers you must have good signal and power in order to realize the potential of your speakers. With the AR1's, room placement is critical and tricky. I have found them to work well in a larger enviroment. If your serious about your music,...

When tuned properly, the AR1's are powerfull on the bottom and realistic and sweet on the mids and top end. The hook up is quick and simple, an overall great listening experience for the money

I think they would be unbeatable if they only had some output adjustments on the mids and highs

I have had these speakers for over 2 years. I have never had any problems with them. I listened to many speakers, including $5000 + but went with the AR 1s because they sound great deliver ample base and don't take up much room.

Very directional (hey, they're towers)

Hey Peter Wack. Apparently, you don''t even own a pair of these. How can you give them a bad review. You must be some jealous pud who dislikes AR. I have a pair of 315HO''s (the predessesor to the AR1). I love em and wouldn''t trade them for...
