Welcome to the site Spideris. I've had the Samsons and I've gotta be honest, I'm not a big fan. Sure they were cheap(ish) but the quality wasn't impressive and they sapped a whole bunch of power - with or without baffles (I ran both ways for about a year). But it's all about personal choice and budget in this game, they sure look good, are VERY loud (especially without baffles) and are affordable. Best of luck and once again, welcome to the family.
