Good luck getting actual Bass out of little 4" speakers, but wait they recommend pairing it with their SUB which also lacks any real specs. Looks like a marketing company, not a HiFi Audio company... Unless they think its okay to take the Rolls Royce "Its Adequate" approach. I'll be sticking to amps and proper speakers, not this overpriced junk.
