The A3 is a rather imposing figure. The speakers stand almost 46″ tall, 12″ wide and 16″ deep. Remove the grille covers and you come face to face with three 8″ woofers, one 7″ mid-woofer and one 1″ dome tweeter. Each speaker weighs just slightly more than 100lbs. In the right room (a medium or larger size room) and with the right ancillaries, these speakers will easily fill the room with a wonderful chorus of music. If we had to rank where they sit in a sub-$1500 list of speakers to consider, they will sit right on top. They have any enormous presence. Bass was thunderous (they go down to 35Hz) with a smooth mid-range and crispy highs. Positioning these speakers are critical in creating a breathtaking soundstage so make sure it has some distance from the side and back walls. Once you have them in their optimum position in your room, you will then enjoy the depth and scale it conveys.
The speaker are sensitive at 90dB but with a nominal impedance of 4 ohms, will require some “juice” to drive them optimally. We would recommend 50W or more to get the best out from them. Cosmetically, the speakers look really good. Some scuff marks here and there but nothing major. A bit of wear on the edge of one of the grille cover. Local pickup preferred but can ship them as freight if shipping is required.
