Had these about a year and a half as of 3/31/03. Second woofer just died. The sound quality was ok while they were working. Nothing dramatic for the price paid, but the life expectance should be well more than a year and a half. Very disappointed. Same thing has happend with a set of outdoor speakers purchased shortly after these.

Nice sound, heat OK and very easy to install.
Do not have the rotating tweeter that newer models now offer.
I haven't had the same experience as the previous customer. They were purchased in Feb 2000 at Circuit City as rear effects and installed in the ceiling. They have not suffered from the extreme hot attic temps here in Texas. I just upgraded to a Yamaha RX-V3300 AV receiver recently and they sound fine in 5.1 config. Enjoy!
