Summary: These speakers are a great deal at $129. They are an absolute steal at the $58 a pair I picked them for. I'm using them in a 7.1 system as surrounds and rear surrounds. Before that I broke them in on a Audiosource AMP-100 (about 60 watts with a 6 ohm load). They are quite large for a tweeter/ 4" combo, but with solid construction. As a few have mentioned here, they do not have that overly "bright sound", but they have a very smooth, non-fatiguing tone.
Summary: I've been using these speakers for a year now with no problems. I'm giving them a five star review because with just these two speakers I'm able to get a full range of sound. These speakers sound really nice and warm with good bass tone and treble without any muddyness from the bass. They aren't shallow or dull.
Summary: Paired with a Dayton DTA 120 class t amp I am in musical heaven...and all for less than $200. I didn't know my music could sound this good. I am no audiophile...don't want to even head that way b/c I don't have that kind of disposable income. However, after hearing about the good deal and reviews on CNET I figured I could give it a try.
Summary: After seeing glowing review on cnet, I cautiously ordered these, concerned it was just a slick promotional gimmick to unload stock. Well if it is.... I'm glad I fell for it. I'm using these with a traditional stereo receiver for music, movies, and television viewing. They have great range and FULL sound. Just what I was looking for at a terrific price per pair!
Summary: I purchased these speakers mostly because they were Pioneer brand speakers, and I've never been let down by Pioneer. With that said, I'm extremely happy I made this purchase. These speakers put out a phenomenal sound for the price you pay for them! I'm not would you would call a audiophile, but I appreciate a good sound output when I listen to my music, movies, games, etc. These speakers do not disappoint.
Summary: Pretty Darn good... I am an electronics Tech and have been an Audio nut for some 40 odd (I mean that) years. $78.00 bucks , WOW! I got my moneys worth and more. At the moment they are sitting atop my SEAS homemade 3 way towers on foam pads. These are not heavy walled so the pads at high volumes and they do go quite loud stops secondary vibes to the towers. The sound:- After two weeks of "thrashing" them in not to bad at all.
Summary: I have owned many speakers over the years but this is the best. I paired this with the Lepai 2020+ and a Sansa Clip Plus and the sound is tremendous. The Lapai amp WILL drive this speaker without distortion as long as you listen at a NORMAL listening level in a 10 by 18 ft room. There is great bass (especially if you tweak your equalizer) and the highs come out of the tweeter crisp. I would recommend this speaker.
Summary: I was replacing my beloved infiniti speakers from 1980, beautiful wooden encased, with a sweet sweet sound, but monsters in the living room size wise. these pioneers were easy to install, don't sound quite so sweet but do the job and can be tucked out of sight.
