Summary: Very nice sound for a basement price, when compared to well known brands. Closest negative aspect is that it would be nicer to have a little higher power speakers, but that's asking too much for the value of this system.
Summary: I have never written a review on a product before, but after almost 2 years of owning this package, i had to come back and comment. I am in love with this system. I paired this with a Yamaha HTR - 6063 receiver, and a pair of Cerwin Vega tower speakers (next to upgrade one day) and this system...
Summary: I have had these speakers for 5 years now, and still, they sound amazing. Very clear, accurate and crisp sound. if you have a small room, get ready to be blown away. The sub woofer is great, can;t go past 5 on them, too loud, and subwoofer begins to distort after 7, depending on level of bass.
Summary: These speakers were better than I expected. I replaced a set of bose speakers and could not be happier. The sound is crisp, more depth...and the price was $250 less than what I could have paid at a retail outlet. I was amazed at the quick delivery, they arrived by courier the next day.
Summary: This review should be 5 stars, but no product is perfect, so I'm just going to pick one small nit. Energy doesn't sell the Take classic satellites individually, so you're out of luck if you want to make a 7.1 set. Other than that, perfect.
Summary: I purchased these this system for use in my main living room so size and inconspiciousness was important for me. After reading a positive review from the $100 a foot speaker wire crowd I decided to purchase. The sound is excellant for both movies and music. Very spacious, smooth and accurate.
Summary: First off, get yourself a great Reciever ... your speakers are only as good as the speaker. With a nice reciever, the Take 2 is simply put the best mid range speaker on the market. In fact even compared to many speakers twice the price range, the energy speakers are far superior.
Summary: These speakers sound very clean and can play very loud with no distortion. The only improvement can be with the sub. The sub sounds good, but can't seem to keep up with the other speakers, but after all its only an 8" driver. All in all a very good sounding system.
