They sound a little bright/lean because they have no real bottom end. I have the Stradas and two TR-3 subwoofers (same drivers all around as the 3.5s) and believe me they are NOT lean. I had Reference 3s for the last 8 years and the Strada/TR-3 combo is better-sounding in every way. Significantly less expensive than the 3.5s too. Can you get away with one subwoofer? Yes, but the pair makes for a marked improvement.
