I always found he highs on horn loaded speakers from the like of Klipsch and JBL very hash and grating, but I haven't heard any in a very log time. Is there any reason to think things have changed?

Thanks for your comment. You really have to judge the sound for yourself so I encourage you to give them a listen if you can. In my judgement The Fives did not sound harsh or grating. Klipsch offers a 30-day return policy but you have to pay for shipping and handling if you don't like them. Best Buy carries Klipsch speakers but I don't know if this particular model is available in stores (it is online). Might be worth a call if there's a Best Buy (or other audio retailer) in your area.

I own a pair and I think they sound anything but harsh and grating. They are very clear and almost soothing as long as you don’t turn them all the way up. Then they will start to break up a bit then. I doubt that will ever be experienced by many people as they are very loud at that point. I use mine with a cheaper Klipsch 10 inch sub and that really allows for more placement flexibility and frees the midrange. Big improvement IMO. I could not be happier for a thousand dollars. The subwoofer is not required but to me really kicked these speakers up a notch or two.
