The beautiful mahogany finish of these speakers only adds to the attraction of the sound! Built in England and delivering a sound normally found only in larger speakers, the Response 2.5 features a unique carbon fibre woofer partnered to the Response 3/4 inch dome tweeter. The result is a clean, open sound with great bass defenition and extension. Michell bi-wire binding posts allow for bi-wiring or bi-amping. The cabinets are excellent, the minor flaw being on the back where speaker wire has marred the black finish.
