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.
