Just wow

 

I can only do an apples to oranges review, since my last tower speakers were 8" MTX monitors over ten years ago, since then, I have had bookshelf speakers consisting of pre-klipsch Energy 6-1/2 inchers, then a set of 5-1/2 inch older Infinitys, and...

Clarity, depth and fullness of sound, sound output, size, weight. Ease of hookup.

Not bi-amped. Had to use multi-purpose cement on the tiny rubber feet. Lack of carpet spikes. Jbl's poor packaging leaves little to protect the speakers during transit. I live in an apartment (my neighbors love me /sarcasm).

Good

 

for the size and prize at $150 it's a good buy, I have a pair of older JBL's that don't require as much power to work at it's optimum, with these new ones I have to turn the volume up higher, the sound is great though, highs, med's and lows, right a...

minor Con: that they require at least 50 or 60 watts of output so they can work at it's optimum, while the older ones I have only require 10 to 20 watts, but that's no problem I can work around it because my receiver's max RMS is 110 Watts.

Great speakers for $150

 

Got the speakers during sale for about $150. Initially, they are intended to be placed along side of my playroom TV to replace a busted soundbar system. But after I connected them to my SMSL Q5 DAC/Amp, I found them to be perfect computer speakers. My...

Great highs Good mid Surprising amount of base Perfect height Well packaged

Heavy? If that can be considered a con.

Very good towers wen on sale.

 

First off, these aren't high quality speakers that will blow you away. The Loft line is a budget line of speakers which are over-priced at their retail price tag. There's no way I would pay over $400 for a pair of Loft 50's. I rated these 5 stars/eggs...

Good sound quality from multiple drivers. Tall enough that the tweeter is close to ear level when seated. Good deal when on sale.

Slender design makes them look a little odd. Woofers on the sides of the cabinet can be a sound issue if you are placing them in tight areas.

Not real happy

 

They look nice and don't take up a lot of room...

I got these to replace my old JBL G400s that I've had for ~12 years. The sound was really disappointing - some might call them "bright" sounding - they just sound "tinny" and cheap to me. Returning for a refund, *and* getting stuck with a "restocking"...
