5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sound quality is just amazing. I got a combo deal so price was amazin too :) I get more bass from just 2 of these than from my previous 5.1 system. I will definitely buy more speakers and sub-woofer from Klipsch to build complete system.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The spikes for leveling feet are really tall. My carpet is not that deep so if I use them, the speakers will just stand above the carpet. So I opted not to use spikes, makes really no difference.
