By Monoprice 5.1 Channel Home Theater Satellite Speakers & Subwoofer – Black
C|net, one of the most prestigious sites for consumer electronics reviews and information, has honored us by declaring this 5.1 speaker kit as one of their Top 10 Sleeper Hits of the year! They also declared this kit as one of their Best tech gifts for under $100. You can read and watch their full review here.
This speaker system features four satellite speakers and a center channel speaker for the mid- and high-range audio signals, plus an 8″ powered subwoofer to handle the low frequencies. All the speakers come with an attractive black finish and convenient spring-loaded signal connectors.
The center speakers use two 3″ shielded mid-range cones, while the satellites employ one 3″ cone and a 1/2″ dome tweeter. However, don’t let the small size fool you! These 8 ohm speakers will handle up to 125 watts of power from your home theater receiver at frequencies from 150 Hz to 20 kHz.
The subwoofer is powered by a 60 watt (RMS) amplifier, driving a downward firing 8″ cone. It can take either line or speaker-level inputs, so can be used with any amplifier, even older amps without dedicated subwoofer outputs. The subwoofer handles frequencies between 50 Hz to 250 Hz and includes adjustable crossover frequency and volume balance controls.
Also included in the box are four C brackets for mounting the satellite speakers to the wall and the necessary hardware for mounting the speakers to the brackets. A pair of plastic feet to properly orient the face of the center speaker is also included. Note that you will need to provide your own hardware for mounting the C brackets to the wall or other vertical surface.
