Im very impressed with these speakers. Ive been toying with about 5 different sets over the last 4-5 months, and I have finally found something I am happy with. Theyre rated at 110 rms, but I am pushing 160 to them. They are more than happy with anything you can throw at them. When I first threw them in I adjusted the gain on the amp like you would with any new purchase - but get this: they did not distort at all. I could not hear my brother sitting in the car with me regardless how loud we were screaming at each other.

Let me tell you more about these bad boys.

The highs are not as crystal clear as I have found with other sets ive toyed with. I think kappas have more clear tweeters, but the kappa tweeter's metallic highs will cause severe listening fatigue. On the other hand, I can listen to these puppies at retarded volume levels all day long. I found that -2 to -4 db on the crossover is in the best listening range. -2 provides crisp highs but might be over powering with certain genres. -4 is not as crisp, but still provides excellent detail.

Now, Ive found that spr-60c's LOVE power. I originally ran 50 rms to them and they were decent. I was not disappointed at all. Midbass was alright, but I felt they needed a little more. 110 extra RMS later, I have a smile ear to ear from these guys. The 6.5 woofers have AMAZING midbass. Maybe it was the quality of the lossless tracks I was testing this set with, but I am now on a mission to deaden every panel possible trying to reduce vibrations on the doors. It's been a long time since I've felt this much bass at my legs.

Between a single 10" type r sub running 400 rms and this set running 160 at each corner, I've never been happier with an audio purchase. It's a great set for the money. Sure theres something lacking in the clarity department, but the mellow tone the set emits is very tolerable at all levels. They're not perfect, but you cannot complain about much a set this decent at such a reasonable price.

If you can afford them, look no further. I doubt there is any other set out there that can deliver the same performance as these guys. At 50 rms they're decent. At 160, they absolutely sing. Im only giving 4 overall stars because they could be a little more clear for this price point, but dont let this deter you from a great listening experience.
