I bought these to use as near field monitors. I'm driving them with a Fosi Audio TDA7498E amp. I ran pink noise through them, then used a flat mic and RTA to get a frequency response curve. They need a little EQ boost in the mid-range, probably around the crossover frequency, but the low end and high end match Edifier's specs. I challenge anyone to find speakers sounding so flat and full in this price range.
I was looking for a replacement for my Micca MB42x for rear surrounds in my home theater and I was hoping these would fit the bill.Pros:* Front-ported for placement near walls* Look really nice* Decent bass extensionCons:* Extremely inefficient, I'd estimate the efficiency at around 80~82 dB / W* A ton of cabinet area is "wasted" by the trim, making the cabinet not as large as it could be for its physical size.Ultimately, I decided to stick with my Micca MB42xs, as the P17s reached only very slightly deeper, but were significantly less efficient.
First, I just want to say that I'm COMPLETELY happy with my purchase! I got much more for my $$ than I really expected. I've been an "audiophile" (OK, self-proclaimed) for many years and outside of a couple pairs of another brand of speakers (start with a 'B' and one pair I've had since 1982!!) I've never been as satisfied with a pair of speakers. I've spent a LOT more money but these babies are simply awesome. Setup was a snap (what's so difficult about setting up a pair of bookshelf speakers???) and I was enthralled with the first notes they produced. Shoot, these would be a great buy at regular price! But since I got them for 30% off, I'm really loving them!! Seriously. Great speakers, nice and heavy, solid as rocks, clear highs, nice "moving" lows. They're the perfect speaker for some great jazz like Oli Silk. They're a perfect speaker for my study. I've been watching and waiting for the opportunity to purchase these and now that I have, I'm thinkin' I shoulda done so a long time ago!!Thanks for the great speakers!! And Amazon, thanks for offering them at such a great price!Happily Listening...
