Summary: I use these as direct-radiating surrounds. They sound great, and are light enough to mount on an articulating mount. (I think I used an omnimount) I do knock off one star because I've read that Energy makes/made a port plug, but you can't find them anywhere.
Summary: The summer of 2009 saw me looking to change my HT set up both from a receiver and speakers point of view. Changed speakers first as I purchased a pair of Energy C200 mains, Energy C-C50 center channel and Energy C50's for rear.
Summary: I bought these as a gift for my father to upgrade his front speakers on his home theater-in-a-box. These are a huge improvement. They provide sounds into the upper-bass area as others have mentioned, whereas the speakers that came with the HTIB were little tinny things with no bass at all.
Summary: I bought these as part of an HT set along with the C-C50 and the S8.3 subwoofer. Out of the box, these speakers sound way too bright. Give them 10s of hours to break in and turn down the treble a little bit until they loosen up. After that they sound great.

Summary: I was using a 35 year old pair of Infiniti 4000's as my rear surround sound speakers and recently listened as the woofers gave out. Since my main speakers are Energy Connoisseur Reference 22's, older than the Infinities, but performing better than when new, and over the years I added Energy front...
Summary: Recently I upgraded my 5.1 speaker system to the Energy C-50 fronts and surrounds along with a CC-50 and a ESW-8 subwoofer. The C-50's came through Amazon (Audio Advisors) for $70 a pair. I also found the center channel and subwoofer @ Worldwide Stereo for $79 and $99.
Summary: For their size, these speakers are brilliant, you get some usable bass and bags of detail. They feel very high quality. Certainly not your average little speaker. Pair these with a good receiver and subwoofer, then you'll be on your way to a great system.
Summary: I have 4 Energy C-50's and a Center C-C50 linked to a Harmon Kardon AVR-254 Receiver. The clarity and depth of these little speakers is just fantastic. I did a bunch of research on small speakers and found many hardened Audiophiles with a love for Energy Speakers recommeding them over much more...
