HARBETH: Compact7s annoying freq spike?

Grumbling women

The thread starts: I've had these speakers for a few years now. Currently I am powering them with a vintage Mcintosh 2155 150 watt solid state amp. I've always wished they were a little quitter and like I said there's a quality that hurts my ears. Besides that they sound very good. Articulate and smooth otherwise.  Has anyone else experienced this or are my ears broken. What other speakers in their class would work better with my amp?
