Great audio - sensitive!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought a pair to 'try' - on sale $130/pair from Amazon. They were initially made for BestBuy stores, but they dropped them last year. Amazon seems to have a stash, however. They won't rattle the walls with bass, but with the usual one or two Watts of receiver audio, they will get plenty loud and have a full-bodied sound - a vast improvement over the old Drake MS-4, RS Minimus/Optimus 7's, and even my recent finds - the Infinity Primus P143's! Crisp speech on SSB, too. Excels at clear signal listening, especially via my Lowe HF 150 & 225 receivers, but even a noticeable improvement over others tried with my Drake R8, Icom R75, JRC NRD-525, and Palstar R30A receivers. Don't worry about buying two of them - you'll find another rig that needs a quality speaker. Klipsch has several similar two way speakers that are equivalent in size/specs, when Amazon finally runs out of the KB-15. Oh... I ordered a second pair at $130/pair - they've been 're-assigned' to audio uses here - I'll get another pair! Just keep them 4"+ from a wall for best bass.
