An Awesome Infinity, Genesis Kind Of Tuesday
Today began like any, but quickly changed when a friend called me and asked if I could help hook up a pair of speakers she bought at a yard sale for 4 bucks.
"What kind are they?" I asked.
"Not very big," she replied. "They say Genesis on them."
Off I went.
Turns out she had snagged a pristine pair. These are smallish for sure with a six inch woofer, that interesting looking inverted dome tweeter with the Genesis logo on them and, surprise surprise, a front port. Sorry, didn't have my phone, so no pics. Anyways, these have perfect foam on the woofers, don't ask me why. We hooked them up to a 1980's 35 wpc Onkyo receiver I had laying around and put an iPod in and these things sound like they are new.
My only question is that bass port....I didn't think the Genesis folks rolled that way.
Then I headed off to look at a job in the next town over and stopped at a thrift store on the way home. Sitting there was a pair of Infinity QE's with those Emit Tweeters I keep hearing about. They were in my car within three minutes.
They are playing now and sound pretty darn nice with nice and clear sweet highs. Bass is acceptable for an 8 inch woofer. Glad I got them.
