    These speakers are part of Pioneers Andrew Jones designed set for 5.1 or 7.1 . These bookshelfs are pretty large and as such have great response and pretty good bass on their own. Although I bought the tower speakers for my fronts, the bookshelfs may be a better fit if you need a smaller system. There is one problem that I would say you need to be aware of and is the reason I don't give them 5 stars. The speakers are larger ( as I said), about 16" tall by 8 wide by 10 deep. However, they also do NOT have any socket or fixation point on the bottom or top. There is a port on the REAR of the speakers, so you cannot mount them on a wall unless your mount can keep them far enough off the wall to not affect the response of the system. Also you will need to come up with your own mount as there is no fixation point on the rear either So a Stand of some type is a necessity and the base of that needs to be large enough to accomodate the speakers size. The speakers sonic response is outstanding and a perfect match for the center channel and sub so 4 stars is still justified. I do recommend them.

    GENERAL I have a pair of these in a 360 sq ft theater room. I have these set up paired with the matching center and two floorstanding speakers (will be adding two more BS to get 7.1). Having spent a lot of money on a projector and screen money was very tight. These speakers came out on sale at frys which Amazon price matched and I decided to give BB a call to see if they would price match as well. They did. Got them same day with store pick up and I get points. SOUND WOW. I paid around $400 for 1 Pair FS, 2 Pair Bookshelf, 1 Center. I have only 1 Pair of BS set up right now and I was blown away. I have a large room and needed great and BALANCED sound. these easily compete with a set worth twice its value. If you're not a hardcore audiophile and are looking to start somewhere this is it. Look no further. These BS and powerful and deliver very accurate sound. Watching action movies make you feel apart of the movie. "CON" There size is large but if you want a good speaker you have to accept that. the annoying part about the size is that there is no mounting option. the speakers have no keyhole mount or pre-drilled holes. you have to put them on a shelf or buy and mount that uses tension to hold speaker in place. It may seem obvious that Bookshelf speakers to be placed in a bookshelf unit but that is NOT true. you need to leave at least 3-4" space behind the speaker to allow for the port to be unobstructed. Also, you dont want walls of a bookshelf impeding natural flow of sound. Best options are to install a shelf or buy tension speaker mounts that dont require drilling into the speaker. FYI my setup is paired with Klipsch Reference 12 sub and Denon AVR.
