Default new speakers - great deal

I got the Wharfedale Evolution 20's off ebay for...wait for it.... 150, but get this, they're worth 250. Apparently they came from a shop who didnt have space for them, brand new. My dad's really jealous because they're better than his

Stuff I dont understand from their website


Bass 6.5" 165mm B/M
Tweeter 25mm tex
Power 120W
Nominal Impedance 6ohm
Sensitivity 87dB
Frequency 35-20k
Crossover 2k
Frequency Fb 40Hz
Dimensions 227x850x343

my review

price= not too shabby (saved 100)
quality = farking good
bass response = incredible, i literally rock the house with these things
manual = I used it to wipe my ass, its absolute rubbish
look = damn cool


I do apologise for the poor quality of the pictures, it appears that 2 60W bulbs and the camera flash is just not enough for my stupid waste of space that I call a camera.

overall I reckon they're the best thing since sliced bread (and believe me, I use a lot of that)

thanks, nah, just what you see there, not at all bad for a 14 year old. The bass response on those baby's is more than good enough for me, I dont have that many songs that demand a good bass anyway, its good for messing rounf though.

I do wan to get a new CD player, and an amp. But this is absolutely amazing, i was soooooo happy when I first heard them, the difference between those and some freebies and 250 speakers is incredible, you'd have to be deaf not to hear it
