Crisp/tight/clear Sound for low to high
THE 8" sub helps the thump at low low end when needed.
I Purchased a set of RM50T to turn my (5.1 RM20 & PSW303) in too a 7.1 System. While I was waiting for My new 7.1 amp to show up, I just hooked them up as L/R front In stereo. I was impressed from the first Sound. The Wife And I listen to lots of cd's still,While doing things around the house or just hanging out with friends & family. We wanted some speakers that would Bring us Back to the good old FULL SOUND(Like my old Polk SDA towers) stereo days when needed And still have Surround Sound for Movies. WE got more then we could asked for With The best of both worlds. When wife is Happy, we all Happy!
