JVC FXT90


JVC FXT90 – (since sold)—I never quite got a handle on these; they’re certainly energetic, exciting and rich sounding, but somewhat overly-midrangey, diffused and smoothed over—i.e. mids are prominent and velvety, but highs are not quite high and crisp enough and lows are not quite low and punchy enough. I found the imaging kinda muddled—it’s hard to place instruments accurately on the stage. They did benefit considerably from amping, which tightened the low end, but I wasn’t enamored enough to keep ‘em. The lower-priced FXH30 are substantially better tuned than these.
