    Specifications aren't relevant as design is more important. You buy expensive speaker drivers and install them in a wardrobe but that wouldn't make them sound good even if the specification sounded good on paper.

    They're efficient and should be relatively easy to drive.
    Thats about it.
    As said before its what they sound like.
    A car might be powerful and fuel efficient, but it might not have any seats!

    Not quite sure what you're after here,mattheu.....As IanJ has said,whilst the spec may look ok(and the basic spec you've given on paper looks quite reasonable)it's what the speakers sound like that matters,and particularly so in your own room.

    I know this from my own experiences in having a tri-amped set of Linn Keltiks(flat from 20Hz-20kHz)that worked perfectly in a house with stone walls and floor,before moving to a 200yr old timber framed house where no amount of adjusting the crossovers could get them right.

    Perhaps if you told us who made them or who made the drivers,we may have a little more to go on,but in the end you have to audition them in your own home before buying.
