Looks good, I posted some questions in this thread, basically I am looking to increase my bass on my bookshelves, will these be good choice? (I am working on a new subwoofer but I need to go bigger on bookshelves for better non-sub bass in music).
Thanks.

I'm not an audiophile but 54 Hz is the lowest frequency rating I've seen for a bookshelf speaker of this size. Though don't expect it to be booming of course.

I have a pair of these speakers and I would say they do not have very good bass at all. They are nice quality speakers, but bass is not something they're strong in.

Just curious, how much did you pay for your pair?

These are some of Kefs budget speakers, and got poor reviews.

So if you are looking for a $300 sounding speaker, this isn't it. It may be worth it at $180, or you might be better off just grabbing one of the Polks, Infinity's, JBL's, etc., that go on sale for less.

You could also spend more on a much better speaker like the Kef Q100 that goes on sale for $300 every so often.

It's too bad because they are pretty good looking IMO.
