Nope. They were heavily recommended last years on these boards and then all of a sudden not one word about them. Strange.
They are Canadian aren't they? Many good gear has come from Canada recently. So if I were you I'd give them a try. If you don't like them you can always return them, I think they have a 30 day return policy.
I wouldn't say they are garbage...I would say they are darn good speakers for 200 bucks. Their new subs are not bad either, I recently purchased the 10" sub and its the best sub I heard for 200 dollars.
Right now theres nothing much powering them(JVC 8010), but soon to upgrade to HK 330 or NAD T752. soo after that upgrade I will post here shortly to push these Canadian speakers to their limits.
