The Focus' are audiophile quality, not HT speakers. The Silver Screen was created to match the Focus. Several versions of Focus have made it into Stereophile's recommended components over he years. The Whisper is also a very nice speaker, but entirely different in engineering and application. Legacy's Focus have had some of the most well-controlled bass I've ever experienced. Never boomy or overpowering despite their 3-12" woofers/speaker.
