Has anyone ever heard these? I bought a pair of the Silver Iris OB 15" about a year ago and i am amazed at the sound vs price value. i put them in a 35x22" open baffle and hooked them up to a yamaha RX-V663BL receiver and and was blown away at there sound for how much i spent. The bass can go as deep as i want and its really tight and accurate, there just is not a whole lot if it but plenty for my taste(the con of a open baffle). The highs are great too, everything sounds large and live. I can crank them as loud as i want and they never even break a sweat and hardly even move. They sound even better once worn in. So to make a long story short i just wanted to know if anyone has heard/used them? For $145 they are a steal. I highly reccomend these speakers. Everyone needs to know about these. There only real con is there size. Now to put them in my car.:up2somet:

Almost bought a pair, I still want to try something like this when I have the room :)

They're good guys, too. Supportive of the DIY crowd.

Just curious, what's the rest of your setup? :)

Current setup.
Front : 15" silver iris
Center : none (might pick up a 10" silver iris down the road)
Rear : 15" silver iris
Receiver : Yamaha RX-V663BL
Tv : Panasonic 42" plasma TH-42PZ85U

I also have a PS3 and Wii hooked up as well.

That is my setup so far. It's only 4.0 at the moment.
