    I use these as my surrounds in my home theater setup (along with the rest of the second-generation Pioneer Andrew Jones speakers), and they sound great. I haven't tested them as fronts, but I imagine they would do an excellent job for that purpose, as well.

    These speakers are great as part of a surround sound system. Just be aware that these are very large compared to most surround speakers in this price range. They're big enough where they almost look funny on my current stands with a 5" x 5" base. With that big size you get decent bass though. The tower speakers of this Pioneer set are far superior to these for front speakers but these are excellent for your surround speakers.

    I don't listen to music at home as much as I used to. These are the rear speakers in my surround system and work great. I want to get the SP-FS52 next.

    Sound great, great price, you can hook these speakers up to your tv or surround sound system for a better-clearer sound.

    These are a great value for surround sound speakers. Other smaller speakers I've had lack power and have had an incessant chatter/hum in the background. These have good power and no chatter. Very pleased with my purchase.

    These speakers are great as stand alone but are even better as surround sound. A little pricey but you are getting everything of not more then you pay for.

    I have these connected to an Onkyo receiver (100W/channel) in a 7.1 config with 2x Pioneer SP-FS52, 4x Pioneer SP-BS22, 1x SP-C22, and a nice Polk Audio Subwoofer. These sound great, they provide very clear highs and mids, and good bass (though I would not use these without a subwoofer in a home theater setup). Hope that helps!

    I use these as my rear channel speakers in a surround sound setup. A little bigger than what I wanted, but, they are bookshelf speakers, not true rear channel speakers. Also got them at 25% off for the pair.

    These speakers sounds great! I would like to replace a different set of bookshelf speakers I have with another pair of these. They make me wish more tv shows and movies used surround sound.

    Started out with a pair of these as main speakers about six months ago in an attempt to add more dimension to an aging 5.0 speaker package. I was so impressed, that I have since upgraded my entire system to the second generation Andrew Jones line. I now have the BS22's acting as surrounds, and they perform great there as well. I would highly recommend these to anyone on a budget, as they are very versatile, and sound as good or better than anything in the same price range.

    I put the speaker on my suround system for the rear speaker. I mainly bought them for the great bass tones. The size are perfect for bookshelves speakers. I had 80s style large speakers that used to be were the new bookshelf speakers are and the sound quality is much better.

    I'm using these as surround speakers as part of a larger 5.1 home theater system and they sound great. I'm truly blown away with the sound from the entire Pioneer "Andrew Jones" collection. It sounds much better than it should for the price and you would have to spend upwards of $2000 on a Bowers and Wilkins soundbar to get close to the sound quality of even a budget 5.1 system. The Sonos soundbar, sub, and wireless surround system is not even close to sounding as good as the Pioneer "Andrew Jones" system. If you have the space for these speakers, it's an obvious improvement over any soundbar I've heard so far.

    I use these speakers as surrounds in my home theater system, and they are superb. Excellent sound quality. I have these hooked up to a Sony STR-DH810 amp. These speakers are a little big, so I bought some special wall mounts to position them properly. Totally worth it though. I have the full Andrew Jones Pioneer setup (minus sub) and I am VERY happy with it. I live in an apt., and even without the sub there is a good amount of bass. Plus my neighbors have remained happy :)
