Pioneer Floorstanding Speakers - Pair

  • 3 Woofers with Oversized Magnets for Powerful Bass
  • Superior Crossover Design for Full-Spectrum Clarity
  • Curved Cabinet Construction Designed to Reduce Vibration
  • 1" Soft Dome Tweeter for Crisp, Accurate, High Frequencies

Overview

Even when you don’t have a fortune to spend on speakers, it’s easy to set your sights higher starting from the ground up.

Introducing the new SP-FS51-LR Floor Standing Speakers from Pioneer.

Designed with uncompromising attention to detail, these speakers are ideal for home theater systems, offering remarkable audio quality from Blu-ray Disc® CD’s, DVD’s, gaming and any other audio source. Using three woofers with oversized magnets for powerful bass, they deliver the kind of high performance and exceptional quality that makes for a stunning music and home theater experience.

Over Seven Decades of Passion for Audio

Pioneer has been the industry leader in audio design and engineering firsts for over 70 years. Designed by Pioneer’s Chief Speaker Engineer Andrew Jones, these speakers embody all his high-end expertise and passion for pure audio reproduction. And while audio enthusiasts gladly pay as much as $70,000 for some of Andrew’s designs, you’ll find these new SP-FS51-LR speakers considerably more affordable.

Thinking Out of the Box

It’s okay to stare. With true curved cabinet design, not only are the SP-FS51-LR Floor Standing Speakers aesthetically more pleasing, so is the entire listening experience. The high-performance and exceptional sound quality is the result of this stiffer design, which also reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet.

As a literal example of the term "beautifully engineered," the elegant and appealing speaker grills on the SP-FS51-LR’s do a superior job of protecting the speaker drivers.

The Inside Story

Much of the competition uses an extremely simple, low-cost cross-over made up of a single capacitor and inductor. The Pioneer SP-FS51-LR utilizes a sophisticated 6 component high-quality cross-over. The reasoning is simple: it’s yet one more way of ensuring high-quality, accurate sound that makes its presence known.

4 out of 5 eggsa good speaker and an outstanding value

Pros: basically neutral
underpriced for their quality level
can play loudly without excessive distortion

Cons: won't "overwhelm" you when such overwhelming is called for

Other Thoughts: I'm a degreed engineer, used to write for a major audiophile magazine,and have made live recordings.

Earlier this year, one of my neighbors wanted new speakers, but had little money to spend. These speakers were suggested by a fellow reviewer, and checking revealed that they had been designed by a talented British engineer for Pioneer.

I found a pair at a local discount store, and gave a listen with several recordings, including one of Mahler's louder movements. The FS51 had no trouble playing loudly and cleanly, without "falling apart".

Particularly gratifying was the speaker's basic neutrality. These are //not// rock speakers, with big bass, an overly projected midrange, and a shrill top. If you know live sound, you will be pleased. If not, you'll say "there know gude".

Most of the negative reviews come from people who know nothing about accurate reproduction and want a speaker that delivers pleasing (to them) colorations. So be it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Non-powered

Cons: Non-powered

Other Thoughts: I have the matching pair of bookshelf speakers as well and all of these work great.

The floorstanding speakers produce nice sound but are nothing overwhelming. Good for the price and recommended if you're looking for non-powered speakers that use speaker wire. If you want it to go BOOM you may want to keep looking and find something that requires power input.

Overall 4/5.
They look great and sound pretty good. Any set of non-powered floor-standing speakers better than these will likely be at least double price. Try to buy these on sale though, maybe around $140

5 out of 5 eggspretty amazing

Pros: I, personally, like the way the look. good bass even at low volumes.

Cons: i dont like the speaker wire connectors.
They dont want to stay tight. on the plus side of that you can use banna plugs with them if you like and that problem is solved. I just wish the drivers themselves loooked nicer so you could leave the grills off.

Other Thoughts: I've never owned a really good (high quality) set of speakers before now so all I have to compare them to are my old car stereo's from the 80's (which weren't half bad). But let me tell you, I have never experienced the warmth and clarity of sound these posses. Didnt even think it posiible. With vocals and accompaniment its as if you were sitting right in front of the artists. NO hisssing or hashness whatsoever with the mids and highs. As for music in general, specs say they go down to 45Hz,. I'd say that is an understatement. The bass can get very deep, along the lines of thunder. And its clear as can be. And this is with them sittiing out alone in the middle of the floor in a 24x26' room - no where near a wall. Its also tight and punchy for drums just like we loved it in the 80's, and they can go pretty load too. I really dont need a subwoofer with them to listen to music the way I like it. Now if you are in to today's techno, dubstep, etc. and like that distorted, so called base that you get with it, you are gonna have to have a sub cause it will just cripple these. Of course then when they're busted they should sound about right for it. lol. If you can get them for $149 a pair like I did, there will be no regrets I promise you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget speakers

Pros: Bang for the buck is high
Nice highs
Normal lows

Cons: Might need a sub for surround purposes, but truly not a con

Other Thoughts: These are not audiophile speakers. If you want audiophile, move on to another set.
These are very good sounding BUDGET speakers. The high/low separation sounds very good to me. They are worth the money spent, and look good too.
You might think about pairing these up with a sub for a fuller soundscape, but all in all, a good set of speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Sound

Pros: I almost feel badly for purchasing these speakers from New Egg for barely enough to cover shipping costs. The sound is incredible and well balanced and the sound stage more than adequate, especially considering the small price tag. I initially bought the SP-BS21-LR on sale (now my rear channels) and was so impressed I had to have the complete Pioneer/Andrew Jones designed system (Sub, Center, and the 51's for the front). Amazing sound for watching movies and for listening to music (the J. Geils song at the start of Hancock will blow you away, and I don't even like J. Geils).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I listen to cd's using only the two 51's in front and find something new that impresses me about these speakers every time.
I can't see (or hear) any way possible to be disappointed with the purchase of these speakers.

3 out of 5 eggsNeed to be tweaked to sound good.

Pros: Low price for the pair. I actually like the metal grille design.

Cons: 6 Ohm and not very sensitive. Don't sound good without some EQ tweaking. These stand very short.

Other Thoughts: For the price, these are acceptable. I'm not understanding those who claim these are the best speakers you can get under $4-500. That's just ridiculous.

I wouldn't recommend these with an Onkyo receiver for two reasons. These aren't sensitive speakers, plus they are 6 Ohm. This will make an already hot running Onkyo receiver run even hotter. You have to turn the volume up quite a bit higher to achieve the same volume level as most other decent speakers. Second reason to avoid these with an Onkyo receiver is the lack of manual speakers EQ. These speakers sound dull and lifeless unless you make some fairly substantial EQ adjustments. The bass is weak, but can be boosted with EQ adjustment. Same for the dull treble response. If you have a recent Denon or Yamaha receiver, you can get these to sound fairly decent, but certainly not great.

Do note that these are very short, probably the shortest florstanding speakers I've ever seen. This could be good or bad, depending on your situation. Just looks odd to have small towers, yet the matching center channel is rather large in comparison.

Overall, get these if you are on a super tight budget and don't own an Onkyo receiver. These aren't going to WOW you, but you can make the necessary adjustments to make them sound better. Again, if you don't own an Onkyo receiver or even low end Pioneer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat floorstanders! Even better price.

Pros: These speakers are amazing. The sound is clear from lows to highs. The lows were better than I expected. These speakers make a great pair by them selves, in a 2.1, 5.1, or 7.1. I highly recommend them! For an entry level set, you can't go wrong with these.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat speakers for $100

Pros: Not the best speakers iv ever heard but by far the best $100 dollar pair of speakers iv ever heard. Good low end and mid range sound.

Cons: Not much high end sound. I have an old yamaha reciever that only pushes 70 watts per channel so this review goes without pushing these speakers to there full potential.

Other Thoughts: Arrived promptly from newegg (as expected). Like i said, i know im not pushing these speakers to their full potential. I plan on upgrading my reciever in the near future. I caught these on sale for 130 with a 30 dollar rebate. If you have the money, buy better speakers. If you live in the real world and have to do everything with a budget in mind, get these speakers.
