There is definitely some improvement in the mids with them raised and a bit of a trade off in the bass at the moment, but again they are just fun and engaging to listen to regardless. Their shortcomings just don’t seem to hinder my enjoyment of them. Just thought I’d share! Thanks!

I def like what I heard/saw.
    I think they actual call it , Distressed Oak. ""The Forte III real-wood veneer comes in four distinct finishes including Distressed Oak, Cherry, Black Ash and Walnut""
