Audio Intimdation S5000
Hi Simon, i also own the Audio Intimidation s5000 speakers, and they are indeed amazing sounding speakers. They have good sensitivity at 92db. You dont need alot of power to drive them, my amp is only 25 watts, but drives the speakers with no proble9m at all. To connect them, remove the brass links. Connect a link of speaker cable to the lower plugs (which is the bass) then connect the same link to the upper plugs(which is for the high frequency), then connect your speaker cable from the amp to the lower plugs.
The Audio Intimidation are hifi speakers but not as we know it. They have an almost PA sound. They image beautifully, and the soundstage is huge. The bass is tight, and deep, but need keeping away from rear walls. For the price they really are a no brainer, and are the best of the range, and weigh in at 40Kg each ! They are huge, and suprisingly efficient for large speakers. I removed the rubber feet, and stood the speakers on granite platforms, and they sound great. I have tried other speakers, and keep coming back to my s5000, they really are superb.
