a further thought i have: how about we not let something this trivial cause a problem ...it ain't worth it.. and the fallout involved may cause Amir to take up "review time " to police our sorry butts...:)

Oh my god I don't think it would take long to type "two six inch woofers" eh? ;) To provide some context, since it's hard to tell sometimes. If it's too time consuming to take out a tape measure, yeah that can be looked up although as I noted manufacturers' dimensions are not always clear.
Well, what other information would you like Amir to include in all of his speaker reviews? Size of the tweeters, overall size of the speakers, colors available, material used for the woofers and tweeters, weight, etc......

Hmm, it does seem like a quick fix with a bit of a tilt.
Maybe an extra .3-.6db/octave from 400 or 500hrz to 20k.
I bet then they would be excellent enough.
That would bring the In room energy trend down to something more mellow.

Or perhaps better to treat the direct response by shelving it down about 3db starting from 300-400hrz to 20k, bringing that into alignment with 87db, leaving a slight bass boost below 200hrz. Essentially making the speaker flat'ish at the 87db mark

Maybe these are the type of speaker, perhaps intended for no toe/straight ahead alignment in a not quite-audiophile type of set-up.
Yes, if I was stuck with these I'd put in a LPF shelf to roll a couple dB from 600Hz to 20kHz. Might take the starch out of all that midband nastiness.
