Summary: In a typical 5.1 surround system the surround speakers aren't called on to do much. I just positioned them in the back of the listening area, fairly high up, about 7ft apart, and facing down towards the mains and then forgot 'em.
Summary: Great Sound for the price. Solidly built. Very efficient, I am using just 1 driven off of a small 8watts per channel RMS amp and it gets plenty loud. The details this speaker reproduces is very good.
Summary: Like these a lot! I didn't know what I was missing until I switched to them. They produce more clean full range sound than the speaker they replaced, and I thought those were nice. I read a review that says they sounded like main speakers. I doubted it given their size. But, I now have to agree.
