Have anyone try this Hertz before? What does it sound like?

Also, what do you think of this one on Ebay?

If you're having to ask about Hertz, then more than likely those will satisfy you.

I got a bit update on this one.

First of all, I'm from Thailand, a neighbor of Malaysia. I went to one of Thai web board and found this:
In Thailand, now it has a speaker' brand High Energy which is they said it has identical appearance with the HSK 165 except there is no Hertz logo on woofer and Xover.
However, they said the sound quality is close to HSK 165 but it needs about 40-50 hrs. to break in.

High Energy speakers' price is $80. Hertz HSK 165 is $235. These price are shop price in Thailand

Do you guy feel familiar with "High Energy"?

This is what I got.

I actually purchased from this guy. I was real skeptical at first him being from Malaysia and all. I recieved the package in about a week, and they ARE REAL!!!!! Just because he's from a forgein country doesnt mean hes a scammer and a cheat. His set has the logo on all woofers and x-overs, I actually took out my rainbow germaniums just to install these, and they sound better (warmer) and the bass is also more noticable. Say what you want, but im completely satisfied with this seller and the product. I also only paid about 225 for a 400 component set..... added bonus.

Thanks for confirming. Yep, I think the same with you. With the asking price of $235 (in Thailand), I think he can get it a lot cheaper than that. Lowest price I found in Thailand is $360 for 2 pair including installation.

Still thinking what speaker to go with.

many of the mainstream brands are rebadged speakers anyway, e.g. CDT = Vifa at a much higher price, Alpine F1 = Scanspeak at nealy twice the price.
