Doing some listening at my normal volume & your discription in largely correct . Not quite the volume capability but better mids than BX8. Everything from the lower mids down has more body yet detail is not lost at all. Bass drum hit much harder than before. It is really amazing how good these little speakers are given a little work. The bass is very well balanced & extended for the size of the speaker with these mods These speakers are good enough now to do mixing on & making value judgements as to how much bass to put on a track & you would be very close to ideal. I believe that these little ones modded are significantly better than the BX8's.
