Initial sound out of the box was absolutely horrible. Way,way hot and glaring. So bad I thought I had made a big mistake buying these speakers.put them on granite slabs on inverted cones in a triangle. So I let them play. Slowly started to get better. Left the house and let the prust audio break n disc play. Came home to a great sound. Not without their faults. These polks are unforgiving with recordings that sonically inferior,they are definitely revealing. Placement was quite easy. Bigger sweet spot than most. Mids are great. But again, if it's junk in its most definitely junk out. Some tracks the bass was very bloated plugged the port on the bottom cured that. Tightened it right up. Details are very good but not great. I had expected better. Are they 3 or 5. I'm pleased but not overwhelmed. Just need more time to play them and listen as they have a long way to go before the full break in of about 1 to 2 months. As I go through i will try to recommend a few recordings to show the best and worst of the nature of these speakers.
