Summary: I took a leap of faith with these speakers based on reviews here on Amazon. Just installed them yesterday and am simply blown away by the quality and sound of these speakers. I have them hooked up to an older model Denon receiver. Pros: They look incredible, my wife isn't even complaining about them on the wall in our apartment living room Sound is amazing for such a small speaker The subwoofer will absolutely shake the house Cons: Kinda hard to knit pick anything about...
Summary: I'm no audiophile (as proof by the fact i didn't know i would need a receiver when i bought these) but I do have ears and enjoy a good action movie. Been using these for a week and they sound great. Seen them as low as $99.99.
Summary: I've been using a 20 year old BOSE speaker system for the last 10 years on my TV. Now that I have a 46" flat screen and a 7.1 capable SONY receiver I though it was time to make a change. My biggest problem was hearing the voice on movies and TV programs. I have some high frequency hearing loss. Once I connected these speakers to the receiver I noticed a huge improvement. I now have discreet audio. The center channel really makes the difference.
Summary: The speakers are great and we like the sound. We are replacing a Bose unit that was a complete failure. We have a big open living area, but so far these speakers have good sound and it doesn't get lost in the open area.
Summary: Note that most of the negative reviews for these speakers are negative because the reviewer didn't realize before his purchase that you also need a receiver to make these speakers work. That is not a valid reason to give these speakers a bad review. I purchased these 5 months ago as part of a full home-theater purchase for my 16 x 18 foot living room.
Summary: You would never geuss that you bought these for 100 bucks. The sound quality is too good to be true for the price and all the speakers are stylish and durable. The subwoofer is powerful and provides that big thump that you need when watching movies. I purchased another much more expensive set from a friend to see if I'd replace these speakers and when I tested them, I discovered that these had superior sound quality! I am extremely happy with this purchase.
Summary: Exactly what I was looking for. The speakers sound great and the subwoofer is an excellent size for my viewing area. The package did not include speaker brackets, but I was able to purchase some fairly inexpensively. I would recommend these speakers as a solid entry level package.
Summary: i use them in a 105x7 rms model, this is not high end set but it works as expected, center channel is a dual speaker/tweeter so its really like a 6.1 not a 5.1, subwoofer is great at 100HZ, do its job, not bad.
