For that price why not pick up a set of polks? Polk has deals all the time, just wait for one to roll around and get a complete set.

Makes me wonder... If the woofers in most jamo products are as "bad" as the buyout drivers... Woofers with weak motors, low Xmax, high Fs, floor-standing configurations tuned an octave or more below Fs... hmm.. recipe for distortion and poor dynamic reach IMO.
