I had bought A pair years ago for my old house. When I moved I just had to take them with me and replace with less expensive klipsh for the buyers. I tried them out for the few weeks before I moved and did not even come close to the quality of the b&w. I now installed these in my new home and bought another pair of the same so they all match and have equal sound distribution. I have 4 of these now hooked up to a Sonos amp and they sound amazing. FYI the Sonos amp is 250w total so these speakers are getting 62.5 watts each and are way louder then you would need. Unless you don’t like your neighbors. The speaker says 100 watts peak power . No way do you need that much power . I keep these speakers with the volume way lower then they can handle right now as it is. But they have plenty of room for more .
Got these open box special to be rears in my basement. When played with bowers 606 fronts they sounded tinny. I took them back and got a second pair of 606’s. Probably good on their own but not even close to as good as the 606’s
I haven't actually hooked these up yet (bought 2 pair). I also no not consider myself an audiophile, but when I heard these over all the other options, there just was no comparison. Hands down, must have for outdoor speakers. You get what you pay for when it comes to speakers.
