Summary: Packaged beautifully and did not charge extra for delivery to Alaska unlike so many other compannies. Best part was everything worked! These are my very first home theater speakers and were purchased due to the positive responses of other reviewers. These speakers did not disappoint. Music played through them sound awesome with very nice sounding bass. (Wife approves of the looks, size and sound.) It certainly adds to the movie viewing experience as well.
Good product, not as sensitive as my Polk Audio RM6900

Summary: The speaker looks and sounds great. However, they are not as sensitive as my Polk Audio RM6900 satelite speakers. I used Pioneer Elite receiver to automatically calibrate the speaker volume. When I substitute the Energy speaker with a Polk Audio RM6900 satellite speaker at the same position, the Elite receiver decided that the volume with the Polk speaker must decrease by 3 BD to match with other Energy speaker.
Summary: I looked at Axiom, B&W, Klipsch, & Definitive Technology speakers first and at the $200.00/per speaker price I couldn't quite afford that. Although these can't produce the sound of the afore mentioned they do an exceptional job, and their price is just what I was looking for. I'm coming from a THX certified cambridge 6.1 computer speaker system I had for my previous HTPC. Each of those speakers were rated at 75watts.
Summary: I was throughly impressed by the quality of these small speakers. They are great in fit, finish, and function. They look great and sound even better. They blew my 1 year old pioneer satellites out of the water in their sound reproduction. I found that I did not have to turn up my receiver as loud to clearly hear voices and quiet scenes in movies. They are crisp and clear in both movies and music. Invest in a good sub and you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Very pleased with this set of surround speakers. Pleasant bright sound with good musical presence. They sounded a bit weak to start, but after several hours of playing they came in to their own. very good low cost system. P.S. added the Energy 8" sub woofer for smashing movie effects.
Summary: Have a wonderful Polk Audio RT 5000 system that sadly I have to sell. I knew finding a replacement speaker system was going to be tough. I looked at many system and in the end I needed a small compact speaker system. I read all the good reviews on this and others sites. I talked to an audio sales man who didn't have good things to say about Energy speakers. I took a chance on this system and wow I I'm so impressed.
Summary: Picked these up from Amazon last week to replace my Polk RM705 (Polk sounded ok but has a weak sub). These speakers sound awesome, sub rocks the entire room. Room is 20x20 and is hooked to a Denon AVR-789, Samsung LNA52 120Mhz 52" using a PS3 for blu-ray. Best spks under $1000 by far. BUY THEM you won't be dissapointed.
Summary: Paired with inexpensive, high-quality Monoprice 16 gauge speaker wires, these speakers provide amazing sound at a price that can't be beat. I recently installed an entirely new media center consisting of the Samsung LN46B650 LCD TV , an Onkyo TX-SR606 AV Receiver , these speakers (with Monoprice 16 gauge speaker wires), these inexpensive speaker mounts , HDMI cables that cost less than a dollar each, and a PS3. The sound is amazing!
