Like the KH 120 II's, the KH 150's are designed as nearfield monitors. The narrow radiation pattern is an advantage. They should not be misused as farfield speakers.Im ok with the speakers not being at their implied best after 6ft or so, I know this still sound very good at longer distances. When I move to bigger room I will take it even further into account. Too bad the KH150 are so much more expensive than the KH120ii ñ, but that extra spl and bass extension looks sweet. The narrower radiation not so much.
