        I compared them to the Polk T50 towers. The Sonys sounded much better, with clearer midrange. The Sonys sounded real, the Polks sounded like speakers.

    • Question
      Can I use 6 of these on the front left and right, middle left and right, and rear left and right, as my surround sound to my a/v sony STRZA1100ES? and what speaker wire is recommended?   (1 Answer)

        If your receiver is like mine there's no such thing as "Middle left and right", just a single middle channel. But if you mean Front left, Front right, Side Surround Left, Side Surround Right, Rear Left, and Rear Right... Then yes, you could use 6 of these. I only have 2 of these used along with a center channel speaker and subwoofer and find that to be plenty for my living room. Hooking up 6 of these, I think would be overkill. But that's not to say it wouldn't be awesome! As far as wires go, I chose to go with Oxygen free pure copper 14 gauge wire with gold plated banana plugs. Worked fantastic. You probably could get away with using 16ga CCA wire, but if you're going all out, go all out and get good wire and plugs.

      Are these suitable as replacement speakers for my 5.1 Sony surround sound system?   (3 Answers)

        The speakers sound great, but they are not meant to replace an entire 5.1 speaker set up. These are meant to work within a 5.1 system as the front left and right speakers. You would still want to utilize a center, rear surround left, rear surround right, and sub-woofer.

        That is the exact receiver I am using. They are perfect together. But if you love bass, I would also buy a sub. (I have both a sub & the SS-CS3's)

      Will these speakers handle 1000 watt amp   (2 Answers)

      By lucky September 8, 2017.

      • Answer

        It depends on what each channel of your 1000W app delivers. These speakers handles up to 145W maximum power and have 6 ohms impedance. Check your receiver for what it is designed to handle. It works with most of the standard mid range receivers that you would buy today.
