Reviews of Attainable Hi-Fi & Home-Theater Equipment

To Doug Schneider,

Please can you guide me if the Heco Victa 501 speakers are good for a room size of 10 x 11. Also, some reviews on performance would be great.


I don’t really know anything about Heco, so I looked at their website and ended up downloading their PDF-based catalog to find out about the company and their speakers. I learned from the site that they’re a German company and they have quite a few speakers across a number of lines. Their speakers look interesting.

Victa appears to be their entry-level line and the 501 is their smallest floorstander in it. The 501 is a two-and-a-half-way design with a frequency response rated from 28Hz to 38kHz. I am guessing that the “10 x 11” in your letter refers to the length and width of your room in feet and not meters. That’s a pretty small room; however, with careful setup of the speakers it could work well enough. If that’s actually meters, then that’s well over 30’ x 40’ and you’d likely need a much larger speaker to pressurize the room appropriately. We obviously don’t have any past reviews of Heco and don’t have any future ones with this brand lined up. Sorry I can’t be of more help. . . . Doug Schneider
