DefBringer Posted January 11, 2001 Share Posted January 11, 2001 Well, I've heard raves about these speakers and managed to find some for $199 and bought them. I have the V.2-400. I couldn't demo them but took everybody's word on how wonderful these were and bought them without listening first (my big mistake!). Well, I have them properly configured (I believe) and I have to say that I am somewhat disappointed. There is absolutely no midrange to speak of. I have the subwoofer set to "10 o'clock" and even there it completely overpowers all the other bass information. Highs seem too tight and compressed and border on being tinny. In fact, after only listening to it for about 30 minutes I already have a headache. Voices don't sound "real" or ethereal as they should, but harsh. I could barely make it through a Radiohead song that I adore because of this. I am coming from using a set of Boston Acoustics BA635, a cheapo $69 setup with speakers and sub half the size of the Klipsch. There is no WAY that old setup should sound better than the Klipsch, but it does. This leads me to two possible conclusions. 1) I have a faulty unit 2) these speakers cater to the "Bose crowd" I have lowered my SB Live's output levels and allowed the Klipsch to do the majority of the amplification. That helped a bit. Wiring was doublechecked so I don't believe the answer lies in messing with that. If anybody has noticed these defencies in these speakers I'd love to hear about it.
