Ive not heard the A6 latest version, but I have been messing with the 'old' A5 for a while now.
In a little cardboard tack and tape 5 minute experiment i found that the A5 used at loud desktop levels and with bass EQ makes a shockingly good pc setup. Now they wont shake the room but a clean rendition of bass down to 50hz is entirely possible with the caveat that levels would be limited. I used a rumble filter set at 40hz and rough approximation of LR transform from 100hz down to 40hz. I listen to mostly metal and i see no reason why the A6.2 M or P couldnt work.

At 1m distance and sitting at a desk, ~85 to 88db is plenty for me.

I found out that there is "spectrumaudio" just a few kilometers away from where I live - just emailed him if I could listen to some MA drivers, hope that works out

The A5 gen1 that i have needed a notch with the GEQ to tame it, the newer A6 are smoother from others opinions.

Mine are loaded in a 75mm sonotube 1m long and a little stuffed. Aimed roughly horizontal a bit like a RPG...

bass EQ of 8db at 31hz, 4db at 63hz, and 0db at 125hz.

Maybe im hearing a strange dipole effect or a room mode but the bass output is surprising considering the lash up, and driver just stuck into the end of a tube.

perhaps it was less than 88db even i measured with SPL meter phone app, so it could be ballpark figure. Not loud no. PC speakers they are not, but they make fantastic ones none the less.
