It definitly is in my opinion. Of course, it depends on how loud you listen.\r\nI believe this is what Gene mentioned as bass bloom.\r\nPerforming the mods Alex linked would be an economical solution to having an amazing pair of speakers with little investment.\r\nIf you are very concerned with cabinet resonance, I think the best remedy is bookshelves (aside from the mods) if you need to stay around this pricepoint. I'd suggest the Beringer B2031p, which is a larger, but solidly made bookshelf speaker. If you plan to mate with a sub, get the 2030p, which has a smaller woofer. Not many other options in the ~$300 range.\r\nI don't disagree but keep in mind that B2030Ps suffer from lots of cabinet resonance as well and that's why they get modded. The B2031s I can't speak to.
