    sup guys. i need help. i have a good deal on these speakers.canton speakers

    do you think i should buy them? are they quality? i will be able to get them for 480 shipped. thats almost 200 less than ABT. i live close to ABT so i could go over there and bargain but i dont think i could beat 480. is there some other speaker in this price range that is better. im looking for floor standers with lots of bass, and these get down LOW.

    I heard those at Abt and they were pretty good. Abt 'listening room' is really bad, but those were some decent speakers.

    $480 looks like a good price. No one can really say if they are the 'best'. Have you gone and listened to Paradigm (Sound Forum in Hoffman Estates) or B&W (Audio Consultants)? Those are a couple of other brands that have highly regarded speakers in that price range. If you like bass I'd check out the Paradigms.

    The Canton's say "25....26000hz" but that doesn't tell you anything. Is that 25hz-26khz +/- 1db? +/- 20db? Who knows. Personally, I avoid any company that won't post this simple specification. It usually means they have something to hide/want to inflate the value of their products.

    Since you say you live near ABT you should go in and listen for yourself.
