for the Titan


I bought the Titan's to replace my Infinity LMPS sat's. I'm very happy with them considering the amount of money they cost, $200 and the light cherry finish. They are of pretty lightweight constructon but look at how much they cost. I like their sound but can be a little boomy in the bass region. I reset the receiver to small and let the sub take up the slack and this helped out. They can play fairly loudly but would caution about putting to much power to them as they are rated at 60 watts rms with an amp rating of 15-100. They were a litle "tizzy" when first hooked up but have smoothed out over the last 3 months. For the money they are really hard to beat. They definitely don't show the sibilence problem and thinness of my Infinity LMPS. I think if I had to do it over I would have bought the mini moniters or studio 20's from Paradigm but I don't regret the purchase, they'll do fine as rear surrounds. Great value!


Product Weakness: a little boomy if run full range, none besides considering price.
Product Strengths: Excellent value to performance ratio. Looks pretty nice in cherry finish. Sound belies their price!
