Are all 4430's mirror image?Should be, yes, though we've seen some listed down your way which are not pairs.


What else can you tell me about theseFloorstanding Biradial Studio Monitors with BIG bass from 15" 2235H woofers. Surrounds are foam, and may need replacement, depending upon age.

100 x 100 Biradial horn generates a pleasing "ambience" (read "soundstage") in modest listening spaces. Toe them in a bit to minimize early sidewall reflections.... :yes:

OK.....OK......

These sound AMAZING!! The definition and presence in the high end is spectacular, The bass does not have the total "70s Boom" that most JBL does but it is there, all big and full ready to up the room.

I already had them "toed in" just by chance. The surrounds were re-done a few years ago so no issues there.

I am so impressed that I now will have to search out a set of 4435's
