Great Home Theater Speakers
from Undisclosed on 1/10/2012
I added these with a center speaker (also from Sony) to complete my surround system. I was amazed at their bass and mid-range reproduction, very powerful. I don't have a sub-woofer and I don't feel like I'm missing anything. Without a center though, vocals and highs are quite muddy, so I would not recommend these for a music/stereo system (I have a dedicated audiophile set-up, these cannot even compare.) As part of a surround system though, I can't imagine there being much better for the price.

These speakers are an overall good to above average speaker. I am running them through a Pioneer SX-680, which produces some very good sound. They sound better mounted on a pedestal or table, rather than on the floor. You just aren't going to get better sound buying a cheap iHome system for the same price.

I live in a small apartment and use these guys for the front channel of my home theater. I do not have a bass driver but with these I don't need one. The bass is very true as well as all ranges. I could not be more pleased with speakers 5 times the price. These do my HT justice.

dont ever break up, LOUD, Sony Name
little bigger than i was lookin for in a college dorm
I bought these looking for speakers for my college dorm room because its going to be the party room. im expecting to have between 15-25 people in there and i wanted a dependable speaker because my roomates have no common sense when it comes to blowing speakers... so i figured sony was a solid name. I got the speakers 3 weeks ago and have had them in a basement with a low ceiling but its still 35 feet long.. i have the speakers pushing out thru an oldschool fischer that pushes 100W per channel. i havent put the speakers anywhere near full blast because they get rediculously loud. ive had them up around 80 watts and certain parts of my house shake. the sound quality is very very good for a 100 set of 2.. even saying that price aside these speakers sound very good. in no way are they shelf speakers though.. they are about the height of a tv stand if you can picture that.. i honestly couldnt be more happy with these they honestly compete with the bose radio i have in my car. if you hook the hunddred dollar woofer up it honestly would sound like a symphony. overall these are very well made speakers that will definately fill a room and are plenty loud for dance parties and can quiet down and be hidden and sound great in a family house too

These speaker sound like @250 ones. I was surprised at the price I paid and for the sound that it reproduces. Excellent Speakers. Sony never will let you down and they last yours and your children's lifetime
