This review is from: Triangle Plaisir TEC41WGPC KUMA Wenge Floorstanding Speaker Single
Pros: Small size and front port allows closer placement to walls.
Ok bass for a single woofer.
Cons: "Veiled" sounding mids.
"Harsh" sounding highs.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why there aren't any reviews for these speakers since the refurbished units are all sold out as I write this review.
First off, I have owned and listened to a LOT of speakers under $1K, such as Polk, Klipsch, Pinnacle, Cerwin Vega, Monitor Audio RX's, Infinity, the new JBL Studio 530, etc..
After letting these play for several hours, I sat down and listened to some 2 channel music through them without the aid of a subwoofer.
Since they are a true 3-way design, I was expecting really good mids from Triangle's paper-cone midrange unit.
Right off the bat, I could tell these speakers did not sound as good as I thought they would.
The bass isn't bad for a single 6.5" woofer, but the mids sound somewhat veiled and unclear...sorta like there is a large blanket placed over the front of the speaker.
The titanium tweeter is probably the best driver of the 3, but even it sounds like it's running a couple of dB's "hotter" than the midrange...making the speaker sound just too "bright" for my tastes.
If all this wasn't bad enough, the speaker has what I would describe as a "boxy" sound.
This is probably due to the thin MDF used to construct the cabinet or not enough cabinet damping material.
Overall, my first experience with a Triangle product and probably my last.
