Sounds right. If you can tune out this bit of "grain" in the low treble/upper midrange, the speakers image easily and throw a big, tall, immersive soundstage, and even though they only go down to 50 Hz or so, the slow 6 dB/octave roll-off and sealed design makes what bass there is fast and satisfying. If I had the electronics skills, it would be an interesting project to update the drivers and construct an active digital crossover.
Whether it was anything to do with the crossover slopes or the fact that the boxes were sealed (I suspect it's more due to very meticulous design and heavy, rigid construction, personally), I found the bass on the SC-IVs to be really excellent.
