It was time to downgrade my honking big 12" sub that was in an enclosure about the size of a coffee table. I found a smaller 8" 200watt Energy at Costco for only $99.00.
I then discovered Energy has a 5 pack to complete the system for only $199 (free shipping, no tax) All reviews i could google say this 5.1 package smokes, even compared to the Bose satellites that i thought were good, so now i'm replacing them all.  Wink

Thought i'd share ...

Speakers are a very personal thing.

Sadly, as 60 fast approaches, the highs are less noticeable. Clear bass is still a good thing.

Our TV has a 5.1 system setup with some no-name speakers that sound pretty darned good with the powered sub-woofer and no-name center.

In the home office, our computer and iTunes plays through an external receiver and my 37 year old Klipschorns. Although big and heavy, they boast an almost 40% conversion efficiency. They are too big for the room acoustically speaking, but we can't get rid of those gorgeous sounding monsters and their oil-filled capacitor crossover networks.
