  5. Cerwin Vega speakers.

    Does anyone use the Cerwin vega speakers for HT and if so what do you think. I was looking at these and they look pretty good. I think they would be a decent match for my Chase speakers that I would use for surrounds. I have not decided yet but I might do something like this in a year or so...

    I've got a set of cerwin vega m-100 towers and the mids/tweeters are starting to get a little old. these towers have always had relatively poor midrange, and i'd like to see what i can do to fix em up.
