    Kenwood 25th anniversay XXV-04S, how good is it?

    I just bought some kenwood excelon 25th anniversay XXV-04S component speakers from cruthfield clearance sale. I was just wondering how this compares to like boston acoustic pros, focal, and others in its class. I have not found any informative user reviews on this except one or two.

    Can anybody tell me how good this is. I have never heard it played or seen it live.
    But the component is pretty impressive atleast from its description.

    To celebrate 25 years of audio accomplishment, Kenwood gave their engineers the freedom to build speakers that would be second to none. And they've delivered the goods with their XXV-04S component speaker system. These components deliver sound that's incredibly clear, detailed, and powerful from the booming kick of the drums to the screaming wail of an electric guitar.

    Sturdy, non-resonant, diamond cut cast-aluminum baskets provide a firm foundation for 6-3/4" woofer cones that handle high power and deliver superb performance. Read more

    They are of course one of kenwoods better products but I was expecting a lot more from when I heard them. Takes a lot of fine tuning to get them just right! You'll enjoy it if you get it where you need it to be. How much did you grab them for?

    Re: Kenwood 25th anniversay XXV-04S, how good is it?

    last week was the last in stock when it sold out. $199 for the speakers. kenwood retail price was $899 if you can believe that at initial offering. Cruthfield kept reducing it till I guess its old stock till sold out. $199 was the best price that I saw and bought it. As for review of it, might take a while to do that, its not a easy install, requires a lot of custom install like big depth and its oversize 7"
