The Bronze 4 speakers are “mid” size floorstanders. With a footprint no bigger than a pair of monitor speakers on stands, the Bronze 4 offers better low bass response and power handling. As a 2.5 way speaker, its frequency response of 36 Hz to 22 KHz outguns most (if not all) monitor speakers at this price range. The speakers itself are not particularly fussy with the components it is paired up with but being that it is pitch as a mid-range speaker, they sound better with mid-range gears or better. When positioned correctly in the room, they put forth a nice, layered soundstage that draws you into the music. The highs were clear and distinct without sounding too sharp while the mids were lush and smooth. Bass energy was powerful for a speaker this size and quite adequate in the small and medium size room. Each speaker has two 6.5″ drivers for the mids and bass and a 1″ tweeter and with a nominal impedance of 6 ohm and a sensitivity of 91dB was easy to drive. Its $600 MSRP was ridiculous value when you factor in the amount of “goodies” built in and the high level of sound quality. So to go under $300 now, its a steal!
Cosmetically, the speaker looks good. Minor scuff marks/tiny dings here and there but nothing major. Grille covers look good in general with just minor wear. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe arrival. They will be shipped in two boxes. The makeshift jumpers will be included.
