Basically, if you like the Overnight Sensations, then you'll like the Amigas. The tonal balance is similar with slightly relaxed voicing to allow for long listening sessions without fatigue. However, the quality of the drivers will definitely highlight finer details in any recording. The imaging creates a wide soundstage, as a quality monopole speaker should, with a very tight center image, and sounds seeming to appear around and behind the speakers. The bass extension should definitely surprise; with an F3 of 34 Hz, there is a good chance you can leave the subwoofer turned off for most purposes. The overall sound is big, it is a 2-way that produces like a 3-way.
The drivers for the Amiga's were chosen for their low distortion and accuracy. The Dayton Audio RS180S-8 7" aluminum cone woofer handles frequencies below 2,000 Hz with amazing precision and authority. For the top few octaves, Paul chose the Peerless by Tymphany DX25TG59-04 1" silk dome tweeter for its low Fs and smooth response.
