They're only 3" woofers, fixed, lossy grilles, and a thinnish plastic housing, so don't expect miracles. Deep bass will be completely absent, and even mid-bass will be partially missing, and what's there will be blurred by cabinet resonant noise.
In a small bedroom on a desk they could sound "good", _in theory_, if not pushed hard, but they're just too small to really excel. The real question is whether they sound good enough to fork over US$320+, and I think the odds are stacked against them, design-wise.
Also there's a note in the copy to add a subwoofer if you want bass, but there's no sub out on these, so you'd need a sub with its own crossover inputs and outputs to do so, and not all subs have those, especially the cheaper ones.
For me I'd rather spend $400 on some used, larger Genelecs (or Mackies, Adam, even KRKs...).
die cast aluminium build, not plastic.
This is a video of the x6 which is about $1,200 I think and shows the insides which is probably similar
also as for the sub, you simply plug the speakers from the input into the output of the subwoofer and the intput connects to the source
