So i got a pair of SB-A16's but nothing to power them yet and i wanted to know if they have a good, bad or average sound? Tweeter, mid-range and woofer look flawless on both.

Here's the specs behind them.
Impedance: 8 ohms
Input power: 240w, Music
Crossover frequency: 3000hz to 6000hz
Output sound pressure level: 91dB/W (at 1m)
Woofer cone type: 25cm (10")
Midrange cone type, ferrofluid 10cm (4")
Tweeter cone type, ferrofluid 6.5cm (2 9/16")
Dimensions (WxHxD) 360x900x265

Never believe the hype.
Consoles aren't about hardware, they're about good games.

I haven't heard them, but judging by looking at them... paper cone tweeters, they're only going to sound average at best.

Yes, they do have a good, bad, or average sound.
Which one depends on who's listening to them. GHz Overclock Club is available from a variety of other sources. Misinformation is just like real information but wrong
....and enough power to shoot the speaker cones through the walls.

Somewhere around average sound. Likely won't have very good high freq replication. Probably pretty weak on the lower freqs as well. These types of speakers are for loudness only really.

Take the Sandy Bridge over Devil's Canyon to get to Skylake.

I had a pair of Technics once. I must say they were light for their size which is never a good sign. That means cheap wood, small magnets. And because they have paper cone tweeters, you have to practically glue yourself to the sweet spot. The off-axis response was so horrible I could not bear to listen to them.

Technics are basically garage, bargain basement speakers designed to fill the space with loose boomy bass when blaring Guns n' Roses while doing an oil change on your car.
