Summary: WOW!! I've paired this with a Sony STRDH550 5.2 Channel 4K AV Receiver, 14AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Speaker Wire Cable, PS3 for Blu-rays, and Soundsoul 24k Gold Connector Banana Plugs. This is the most amazing system I've ever owned. Everything sound crisp and clear.
Great Home Theater Speakers - Have a Good Receiver
18 March 2009
Summary: These speakers really do provide some amazing sound clarity. I spent the whole weekend running 12 gauge speaker cable through the walls, under the floor, etc and mounting these guys. I watched the pro bowl last night and was astonished by the clarity of the sound.
Summary: Fantastic Speakers with great sound at a budget price. If I'd paid $600 for these, I would still think these speakers were a deal. They sound that good. Make sure you are feeding them enough power from your amp and they will perform wonderfully.
Summary: Had these for about a week so far. Hooked up to my Onkyo NR509 with 14 gauge RCA speaker wire. They play together really well. Great sound! The speakers were much smaller than i had expected (which is a good thing). Also glad that the center channel is designed to lay horizontally.
Summary: i was unsure of what to speakers to buy as i already had a new Onkyo receiever. i wanted a set that was of good quality but not too expensive. i had never heard of the Energy line before but saw good reviews. I am very pleased with my purchase as it has great sound and the Sub will shake your house!
Summary: I didn't change any settings until after the break in period. During that period kept the volume at a reasonable level. Post Break In 1.) Set Crossover to 150 HZ 2.) Set Front Speakers to Large, Center Channel to Small and Surround to Small. 3.) Set the volume to 60. 4.
Summary: When the Energy 5.1 speakers arrived, even though I'd read the specs, including their dimensions, when I looked in the box my first thought was "That's it? I paid $$ for these? They were so small! When I picked each one up and carried it to its destination, I continued to be underwhelmed.
Summary: I'm a novice at putting together home theater systems because I've always owned Bose. You open the box and it's all there with Bose. What I wasn't ready for was all the extras I had to buy. For novices putting together their systems for the first time this is for you.
Great value great quality great speakers, part of my 7.1 home theater
18 March 2009
Summary: I purchased these based on reviews such as the one from CNET listed here and other reviews. I also purchased them because I trusted the Energy brand and from the materials to the cosmetics they seemed they would work well for my new home theater. This turned out to all be correct.
Summary: I used to own a Samsung HTIB that I thought had decent sound. Was I ever wrong. I never knew anything about DTS:HD-MA until I hooked these Take Classics to my Pioneer VSX-1020-K receiver. The first movie that I watched was 3:10 To Yuma which has an excellent soundtrack, and audio track.
