    "Love it...5 stars...So far they have not gotten'taxed' by pounding bass lines at high volume, so we cannot speak to their ability to scream and shake all four corners of the Earth (which no rational person would EXPECT 5 1/4" bookshelf speakers to do...), but at reasonable volume they perform pretty well....We decided to upgrade the speaker system a step at a time, and this was recommended to us - we got both a right and left (front) instead of a mid, as we were told this would fix the problem."

    "Nice set...Just wow...These speakers were purchased at a reduced price, so at that price point, they were a steal, (however, I am using them as surround speakers, so I cannot give a definitive review)....These book shelf speakers met my needs and sound great, being three way speakers makes a difference in the sound quality."

    "Not bad...Love it!...but as the "extra" speakers they are awsome, my stereo is rated at 130 watts per channel and these little bad boys are rated at 100 watts....Compared to speakers within the same price range, these sounded the best to me after listening to the Polk Bookshelves, Klipsch, and even the greatly rated Pioneers."

    "Not Bad...good set...I've listened to a lot of speakers and own a few that are far more expensive than these, and these still please me every time I listen to them....The soundstage is a bit smaller than you'll find on some (not all higher priced Hifi bookshelf speakers - it was just a bit smaller than the Axioms - but they still have a perfectly good soundstage."

    "Worth it...Good buy...They come with a small tripod-like base to set on a bookshelf or can be wall-mounted (there's a hole in the back where you can hang it on a screw but I'd suggest buying a mount that allows for directional movement)....One great thing about this speaker you might not have thought of: you may have to lift your TV up so it won't block your screen -- I had to jack up my 40-inch Samsung by four inches -- but if you don't mind doing that, you can save $75 off the cost of the ProCenter 1000 and get a center channel identical, not just similar, to your other speakers."

    "Nice sound...Work great...The Denon I've listed above is a decent mid-range receiver and these speakers just can't handle it - regardless of where you set the crossover frequency ... which bring me to the Pro-1000's Now, to the review on the Pro-1000's: These are setup in 5.1 surround sound system in a room 14 x 18 #so much larger than the room above# and driven by a Denon 3312CI with 4xProMonitor 1000's, Pro Center 1000, Pro Sub 1000....After doing a bit of research on AVR forums, as well as looking at the definitive website that these are capable of much lower frequencies, I proceeded to put them at a comfortable 80hz, and the center at 100hz."

    "Great Sound...Not too shabby...For these speakers to be used correctly they need to either be mounted at the top of your ceiling, angled down, or just simply placed on top of your current tower speakers, aimed at the halfway distance to your target audience....We have a 10+ year old Sony DVD home theatre system -that the speakers went out a couple of years back (DAV-HDX465) we connected these Sony speakers to it and are very impressed with the outcome!"
