In 2003 when it occurred to me that I had to replace my Cerwin Vega D-9's because the cones had dry rotted, I decided to go to Best Buy because I read good things about the F-2's on some website. They didn't do much for me and I took them back to Best Buy. I assume I was matching them with the wrong electronics because I did not get the bass etc. I heard about, but that was before I knew about the phenomenon called speaker break in. They were probably decent low fi speakers that I did not break in but I'll never know. It was not too many months afterwards that I found Audiogon on the net and it has been a slippery slope down the money trail through many pairs of speakers ever since. You will not find much interest or support of a discussion on speakers such as Athena here at Audiogon, because the brand and the speaker are not at the level of mid fi or high end that would interest members here, some of who may have owned Athenas once in their audio equipment history. But I'm sure you were prepared for that. Good listening! however, since proper matching of amp and speakers, no matter what level, can be satisfying.
