I don't use any filters.
The bass is there to...i guess something like 45 hz, but it's not very loud. Usually they shoudl stand at the wall but I use them as room dividers. There will definately more bass, positioned direct in front of a wall. Don't get me wrong...I#m really happy with the bass-response, but I think it could be even better.
They sound absolutely fantastic...especially for the money they cost!

Hmm...
Thats good news..
I have listened this drivers in T&Bs Turkey distributor. But they were in a bass reflex box. And the high trebles sounded me some lack.. But the basses were not bad.
Anyway,
My box will be more balanced I guess... At least as Henkjan mentioned..
Can you say anything about the sensivity? 90dB is a good level, but I dont trust the factory measuring results. They (and their frequency response curve) say it sounds until 20Khz perfectly, but I feel NO..
I will use that speakers with a gainclone and it can drive not more than 28W into 8R...

I don't think, that they go up to 20k...but that's no poblem, cause I'm 40
If you do an A-B test with a good 2way-Speaker you will definately have more sparkeling trebles, but I don't miss them at all and if I would, I would use the trebleknob of my amp

I am also 40 (not really, in fact 39.3 but I can hear 20Khz (I've tested with some test cds)..
Anyway, this is not our main issue..
I listen classical music and especially the new records have a lot of brighten details.. It sometimes makes me tired but I love this sound anyway.
And yes... This treble problems can be solved with a simple tone controller. The bad news is I have no tone control unit because I dont like their coloration on sound.
May be I must compare its sound with a good two way speaker system as you mentioned..

I only use vintage amps...in that times even loudness was OK.
And...it is...as long as you can't hear all that stuff with the original sound level and who can?
But...here it gets a kind of relegious, so...
