If it sounds weird, don't use it!
Arx from TheAudioInsider is insanely popular at AVS right now due to the fact that it's a giant-killer speaker for a quarter of the price. It's mainly the planar tweeter they used that seemed to have gotten people's attention but it really does sound amazing, as far as I've heard. Tempted to buy a pair, but it's not like I'm going to be buying anything for a loooong time.
Dammit, those are actually tempting. If I don't get anything else on Black Friday and they have a good sale, maybe...
EQ is dead simple with an AV receiver. Not sure if it's audiophool approved or not though.
