Nice rear surround Speaker
on December 18, 2010
This is a very nice rear surround speaker if you have room for it, as it is rather large for a "bookshelf speaker." IMPORTANT NOTE: These are sold by an individual speaker, not as a PAIR. When I originally purchased it, I assumed (never assume) that it was a pair. When only one speaker showed up, I was surprised and disappointed, however the good people at Amazon sold me a second speaker at the same price I paid for the first and changed the listing title to more clearly delineate that this was only a single speaker - I've never bought a bookshelf speaker as a single item before...
I am running a 100W per channel Yamaha Dolby Digital 5.1 amp/receiver with a 12" powered Klipsch Subwoofer, Infinity SM85 Mains, Infinity SM Video for center and these babies for the rear now. The sound is great, even though my other components are now 11+ years old. The sensitivity of this speaker is not as good as the SM series, but having the ability to adjust my 100W amp evens it all out, and makes for great sound.
The looks are nice and stylish. I could see this speaker as a good main speaker if you have a decent subwoofer to hit the low frequencies, as these will not produce ground shaking bass, being only a rather small 2 way speaker.
If you can get a good price they are worth the money. I'm sure I'll have these for many years to come.
