Great speakers


These speakers are spectacular. Had them since they first came out in 2006 and still playing strong even after the sub was partially soaked in water from flooding. Would definitely buy again. Although they don't go too loud for parties these are great...

I never write reviews, but I have had these speakers now for 8 years and they are just as nice as out of the box. They have survived through many moves, and blaring parties. If they broke, I would honestly buy them again. If you re thinking about...
