Spirit SUB 12 - Hemmabio (Sweden)


August 03 - 2018

"A thoughtful product like this one is fun to review because I can give a wholehearted recommendation, but it's hard for me not to make a brainwashed impression when I'm not expressing any direct criticism. Personally, I like black or slightly snowy dark wood. But anyone who wants to use the subwofer in a home cinema will appreciate the matt black, while the matt white is more suitable for modern living spaces. RCA outputs are no important detail, but it is also missing if we are to dig into any shortcomings. In other words, this subwoofer is good, really really good."

Spirit 2 + Spirit SUB 12 - Hifi-journal.de (Germany)


January 08 - 2018

"The idea of the Spirit Sub 12 is very powerful, can be characterized by a very precise punch and the timing is excellent. The reproduction is never exaggerated and makes a perfectly dosed impression. When the events in the movie are getting really violent, like on the UHD by Hacksaw Ridge, the XTZ subwoofer really shows what it is made of."
- Matthias Fengler

+ first-class workmanship
+ high-quality sanding varnish
+ Low frequency range
+ Customization options

Spirit SUB 12 - AREA DVD (Germany)


June 20 - 2017

"The XTZ Spirit Sub 12 is able to convince in every discipline. Stylish optics, high-quality workmanship, rich equipment for great flexibility and a powerful yet precise sound are the characteristics of the Swedish subwoofer. Weaknesses are looked for in vain." "The competitors are also strong, but the XTZ impresses with its high acoustic harmony and the absolutely identical handling of music and movie source material. Very high SPL capabilities and an outstanding precision, even with parallel occuring bass effects, are part of the  impressive performance." "This is how to build active subwoofers: the XTZ Spirit Sub 12 combines enormous performance and high-quality appearance for a small purchase price"

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - Lowbeats.de (Germany)


May 13 - 2017

"The fact that Scandinavians have a sense of good loudspeakers is nothing new, that they love their home cinemas through long winters as well, so no wonder the XTZ Spirit series is what it promises: high dynamics of discreet design with noble matt multi-layer finishes and impeccable processing." "The whole Spirit set sounds pleasantly dynamic and shows rather warm, earthy sound colors, which will never be annoying and can lead to enormous reserves for its compact dimensions. Speakers like these are often only able to deliver either fine music or action-movies, the XTZ Spirit series instead delivers both! "... This makes the XTZ Spirit series a real bargain."
- Raphael Vogt

+ Great workmanship, compact size
+ Variable sound tuning for all speakers
+ Powerful subwoofer
- Floorstanding speakers are little unsteady without optional feet

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - Hifi-Test (Germany)


April 27 - 2017

"With the Spirit series XTZ has released a big hit. These loudspeakers look superb, are first-class processed and even literally go through as sound furniture. Our 5.1 Surround Set from the Spirit line offers precise, dynamic sound, which meets even the most demanding requirements. A particularly practical feature is the possibility to operate all loudspeakers of the series as a bass reflex or closed construction in real listening rooms. Sound adjustment is also possible with the jumper on the backside lowering the tweeter level and the three presets of the subwoofer. A look at the more than fair overall price of the Spirit 5.1 set should also create a smile in the faces of potential buyers, because with this performance and processing quality the set is an absolute purchase recommendation."

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - AREA DVD (Germany)


March 06 - 2017

"XTZ has practically done everything right with the Spirit series: natural, harmonious and precise sound, noble workmanship, contemporary look - and the whole at a price that amazes. For a around 2,000 EUR, it will be difficult to get an even more powerful overall package. The extremely powerful active subwoofers clearly stands out in the Spirit set. All components are well processed, leaving little scope for criticism: It would be desirable if the Swedes offered suitable top firing modules for the Spirit 11 front loudspeakers."

Spirit Series 5.1 Set - Hemmabio (Sweden)


December 13 - 2016

"With its sturdy and almost austere appearance XTZ gives a very solid impression. It is conveniently, well built, not too expensive and also sounding with a high entertainment factor. Actually, there is nothing to complain on, we surrender and give two solid Thumbs up! Although I liked the 95 series and although I call myself a reactionary, I think the Spirit is a major step forward in the development for XTZ."
- Thomas Odeltorp

+ Well built and good concept
+ Accurate and smooth sound
- In this price range - nothing!




Spirit Series - Zhuhai (China)


October 20 - 2016

"The new Spirit series is made for people who appreciate the true quality of music and movies. It is like real sound, which gives you the feeling to really be in the center of the event. Gripping bass as well as accurate mid and treble, are the strengths of the Spirit Series. The use of in-house developed and optimized high-quality drivers in neatly manufactured cabinets, with a great finish, is unique in this price range and even provides a larger number of audiences to enjoy the natural and balanced sound of XTZ speakers."
