    I don't think that the 5.2 is the best speaker in the Swan Diva line. I could not find detailed information on the 5.2, but I found this page on the similar 5.1. Notice the notch in the frequency response at about 12KHz that gets worse off-axis. The speakers I would recommend in the Diva line are the Diva 2.1 and the Diva 6.1.

    I had not previously taken a look at the Swan Diva 4.1, but it looks good too.

    Thank you for the info!!!!
    I have noticed that graph also.
    I have talked to the people at audioinsider and they have told me that the graph is inccorrect for the 5.2s. I have decided to order the 5.2s and give them a chance.
    I will post back with first impressions. I also will be comparing them with the rocket rs 550mkii.

    You're welcome. It looks to me like the dip at 12KHz in the 5.1 speaker is caused by interference between the midrange and tweeter. If Swan has changed the crossover in the 5.2 to roll off the midrange more quickly, then that would probably eliminate the problem. To see if the problem has been fixed, listen to the speakers while they are playing music with a lot of high frequency harmonics such as a single violin, a tenor sax or a piano. See if the music sounds natural or not.
