Summary: This speaker has a lot of sound for the size. I bought to listen to 2.1 stereo music but also use with my 5.1 Surround Sound. This is a good brand to buy if you don't want to go all the way to BW speakers but still want a clean sound.
Summary: We tried to test as many speakers locally as possible. We had a couple nights at the local speaker store when no customers were around and the employees were happy to let us listen to anything and everything. . . and we did. The B&W speakers sounded amazing but the price was way more than we wanted to spend. When we got down to a price range we were happy with we were left with Energy speakers and Definitive Tech. . .
Summary: I love these speakers. They have great clarity - good highs and clear bass. Before I moved to my current location I had a surround sound system with Energy speakers. Because I now live in a condominium, I did not think the surround system with tower speakers and amplified sub woofer was appropriate. So I bought a highly rated sound bar with a wireless subwoofer. I could not stand the awful sound.
Summary: These speakers may be small but don't let size fool you, they pack a serious punch! Great highs and great bass, i am using these with an energy sub through a denon receiver and they provide more than enough for my 12 X 20 living room. for the price you can't beat these speakers.
Summary: Bought this speaker set to replace a small set of JBL speakers that I enjoyed for many years. The Energy speakers had better bass and timbre and better imaging than the JBL's. I am very happy with my choice and look for many years of music enjoyment with these speakers.
Summary: They setup easily, connected to my rear channel outputs on my Denon AVR1910 Amp, no issues with the quality sound great for rear channel, match the finish and internals of my front speakers and are working great in that capacity, five channel stereo music sounds great no distortion @ 80Watts/channel adequate for non dialogue driven speakers. Would have preferred the cb-20's but they were in stock and every other desire for other speakers in this system was met.
Pros: It's been a cost effective way to match up my speakers drivers
Cons: Wanted the higher end CB-20's but they weren't available without waiting :P
Summary: I decided to buy a receiver and a few bookshelf speakers to upgrade the sound on my LED, and went this route instead of a sound bar. Good soundbars compared in price and lacked the features and capability to add on speakers down the road...this is my first experience with speakers but i am absoutely BLOWN AWAY at the quality of sound on these bad boys. dont let size fool you - these little things pack a serious punch and paired with an energy sub sound AMAZING!
Summary: I bought these speakers as a birthday gift for my son. After hearing them, I wanted to take them away and keep them for myself. These speakers sound AMAZING! Bass is powerful and highs are crisp. For the price, you can't go wrong. I even compared them to Bowers and Wilkins (B&W) and there was very little difference (other than price).
