Sound stage = The ability to sit in the sweet spot and listen to a recording, and have it sound to you as if the performer is on a stage, slightly elevated from your seating position, and centered. This goes hand-in-hand quite often with "imaging" which is either on-axis (directly between the two speakers, or directly in front of a single driver) or off-axis (off to one side the the 'sweet spot') and entails the ability to maintain proper stereo separation, as well as a phantom center channel image when using one pair of stereo speakers with a recording mastered for 2-channel audio.
Deep = strong low frequency response, usually in the bottom 2 octaves (20-80Hz)
Clear = not muddy. good detail. This can be a result of speaker design, or factors pertaining to the amplification stage, such as damping factor and the speed at which the output stage of the amp can track the input source signal.
This can also be a result of driver design in the speakers themselves, such as a poor BL curve for a driver, caused by having a magnet structure lacking enough control of the driver mass to make it track well. This is often referred to as having a 'sloppy' driver or 'slow' driver. Not something you tend to see in a quality speaker design.
Warm = strong mid-bass, in the 80-200Hz range, consisting mainly of baritone and Tenor voices for men, bass guitar, and so forth. If a speaker is lacking warmth, it may be referred to as sounding "thin"
Timing - This one I need a little more information for. In what context have you seen this used?
Detailed = again, a speaker that is very revealing, wherein you can hear details in music you typically cannot with a cheaper stereo system. An example of this is that with my system, consisting of KEF Reference 104/2 mains on an Adcom GFA-555II amplifier, via an Integra CD changer, I can listen to Tori Amos' song "Father Lucifer" from her 1996 CD "Boys for Pele," during the beginning of the song, Tori plays the piano, and on a good system like the one listed above, I can hear her foot on the grand piano's pedals thumping against the floor as she plays and sings. I'd not heard that detail on a boombox or in the car. A lot of what defines being detailed, or clarity as noted earlier, is the speaker's design, and attention to driver design and crossover design, allowing the speakers not to be overtaxed in any particular frequency range so they don't "bottom out" or distort due to being asked to do more than they are able as an individual driver, so that the next speaker can take on whatever frequency range it's best suited to cover.
