First Speaker Setup - My Experience and Opinion

Cary R., Newegg
22 March 2016
  • Summary: Never before have I dabbled in home theater or surround sound in general, with the exception of setting up some cheap Logitech computer speakers. I was tired of my lame speakers and I wanted something that I could be proud of, so I really went for it on my first try at the home theater/speaker...
  • Pros: -Clear and rich sound -Great mid bass -Clean looking finish -Dual ports on the back
  • Cons: -Not going to hit those deep lows, not by themselves anyways. -Quite big

  • Summary: I live in Canada so i order from newegg.ca of course, but it was ship from LA, take for ever to arrived but i worth the waiting time. Came in perfect condition no issue at all.
  • Pros: Cristal clear sound! also good mid bass, it can be set as main front speakers ( they can handle it for sure) Bi amp capable, i set it as surround speakers on my 7.2 receiver and its much improvement, i replace it from BOSE speakers very very much improvement! BOSE are junk compare to this and hal...
  • Cons: Only cons, these speakers are very deep, so i you plan to set in on regular small stand will be hard to do. Get floor stand.

  • Summary: For the life of me I cannot understand all the glowing reviews for this speaker. They sound good. Very average sounding. You could do much worse and you could do much much better by spending just a little more money and doing some research.
  • Pros: Cheap Nice Looking
  • Cons: Average Sound Slightly Smeared Vocals Weak Bass Poor Soundstage

  • Summary: Paired with a PSW 660 WI sub and these things rock.
  • Pros: 1. Price 2x119.99 is a super price. 2. Sound is nice and clear, rated at 20-125W at 8ohms 89db with a freq response of 47Hz to 25Khz, which is a pretty broad spectrum for bookshelfs. 3. cheap enough to buy 3 pairs and use 1 for the center with a spare lol. Of course these sound clear, but need to...
  • Cons: None at this price point. These are discontinued, but still great if you can get them.

Very nice computer speakers

Ray Y., Newegg
3 June 2015
  • Summary: I'm using this as a computer speaker setup paired with a S.M.S.L SA-50 and they are perfect. I live in an apartment and can't use a subwoofer due to the close proximity of neighbors and I don't want to be a d.o.u.c.h.e who's loud bass annoys the hell out of my neighbors.
  • Pros: Nice midbass and highs. I'm using these as computer speakers in a 2.0 setup and they sound a lot clearer and better quality than my previous 4.1 Logitech setup.
  • Cons: Not the deepest bass, but paired with an amp they produce very nice midbass. You will probably need a subwoofer if you desire strong deep low bass

Amazing Speakers

Bruce P., Newegg
26 May 2015
  • Summary: I upgraded to these from a pair of Boston Acoustics CR77s and am enjoying these way more then I ever enjoyed my old ones. I am running these in a 2.1 setup off of Yamaha RX-V1065 Receiver and is paired with a Bose Acoustimass 3 Series III Subwoofer.
  • Pros: They sound great for the price, not many speakers in the same price range will compare. I got these for $100 on open box. They were an absolute deal!!! There are two 5 1/4 speakers and a tweeter in each box. The boxes are in a nice black with some silver accents. The grilles are very sturdy and l...
  • Cons: They are very big in terms of depth, it's do to having 2 speakers though. May require the use of stands in certain applications.
