These are shabby speakers. That being stated, they are certainly justified regardless of the cost. I had some off brand speakers Google has never at any point knew about and these beat them by a long shot. No twisting and clear sounding. Try not to expect much bass yield from them yet that is the reason I'm getting my sub to compensate for that. In case you're running the speakers with no bass and utilizing a subwoofer you'll be super content with this buy. Having a sub keeps the strain off the speakers and shields you from blowing them out.
