5 out of 5 eggsBS22 bookshelf speakers

Pros: Excellent midrange - midbass
delicate (not harsh) highs. Not fatiguing
Response is quite good in movies that have a sudden impact (think newest James bond movie - subway scene) - about scared us off the couch.
Medium width directionality, Good for 3 across on the couch 10 feet away. The sound stage is not as forward as the Klipsch RC-52 II center I am running with them. I think that the Klipsch and these mix okay. Klipsch is definitely more defined and bright on the high end, so you have some discontinuity in the highs between moving from left to center to right
Very pleasant to listen to. Think of the throatiness of a Cello. You can really hear the vibration.
Better looking than the last ones

Cons: They will not play extremely loud, but they do give adequate volume, probably due to their middle range sensitivity. Hey they do play plenty loud though. Please note that I do like horn loaded speakers: so these were not as crisp as I prefer.
Crossing over at 80 Hz is a must - maybe even at 100 Hz depending on what sub you are running, they do not go low, but for stereo music, they got a mild punch. They will distort if you don't crossover through your receiver at high volumes (think flipping table scene on Thor).

Other Thoughts: Coming from an Infinity minuette mps 5.1 system, I am putting together a decent home theater setup over several years. I used to run sound for bands and played in orchestras, bands, jazz, rock, etc. Just wanted to give a use case here. I upgraded to the RC52 II center first but I knew I needed to get the L&R going with something, as the Klipsch was night and day from the last center in both size and sound. The RB61 II (Klipsch) is not in the cards yet, but I had $100 so I grabbed these on sale. They have a decent size to them. I had them on some homemade oak stands using some simple thin foam to dampen any vibrations through the floor both under the stands and under the speaker. Banana plugs are nice. These are rear ported, so you need some distance from the walls. We recently moved and I had to place them in a entertainment center so I don't exactly get the L&R experience for now, but they are still quite good (they do get a little more bassy when in the cabinet but I am using Pioneer's auto eq to hopefully adjust some of that). Eventually I would probably move these to the sides of a 5.1 or rears of a 7.1 system if I can place them in front of a wall, but since they are rear ported, they may go in a computer setup (again if you have room). This is a long project so these will fill in the gaps great as the system comes together. Planning to go SVS PB12 NSD on the sub (next purchase), then RB61 II Klipsch for fronts (front ported). Depending on what the house is like when we move in a year will determine surrounds side and rears (in-wall or Klipsch RS models). These are fitting the bill in the meantime though in a great way. I could see them as a great secondary system (bedroom system/workout room/computer room. I may even try to mix some audio with them as they would work well for near field monitors.
