4 out of 5 eggsGreat set of speakers

Pros: Great sound, heavy little speakers, awesome price when on sale.

Cons: Lacking slightly in the lower mid levels, they only have 3 1/2" midrange (while listening, I would like to have a 5 or 6" mid for full audio spectrum )

Other Thoughts: Other than the slightly lacking lower midrange, these speakers sound great, the sub puts out some awesome bass, and the highs sound awesome just listen o the movie the devil inside (the sonic scream sounds AMAZING )

And as always, Newegg delivery is awesome

4 out of 5 eggsNice little system

Pros: Works well with the Onkyo 609 receiver, easy to set up with color coded wires for each speaker. Good length on each speaker wire, enough to do a medium room. Rear speakers are small but do provide nice sound. This isn't going to blow your walls out with sound, but the sound out of them isn't bad at all.

Cons: It would have been very nice to have some wall brackets for at least the rear speakers, since they are small and don't use the standard 1/4"-20 thread mounts (smaller than that - minus half an egg). Since they only weigh less than 2 lb. each, finding brackets that work with the screw mount on the speaker and don't look like they could hold 30 of the speakers (LOL) is hard to find. My other complaint is that the speaker wire gauge is a little on the small side - looks like 18 or 20 gauge - I usually like it in the 12-16 range for speakers...minus the other half an egg.

Other Thoughts: All in all, it isn't a bad system for the price and size. It will work nicely in a small to medium-sized room with no problems, especially if it is driven by one of the ONKYO receivers. The bass is decent, the highs seem pretty clear, mid-range lively.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Sound Quality

Pros: These sound incredible, I use them on my Laptop and Xbox, Watching movies with super clarity, and playing games with superb surround sound, i can hear anyone anywhere.

To top it all off, if i just want to listen to some music, the Bass shakes the house, Dubstep and techno fans rejoice, the Bass is ASTOUNDING. I've coupled these with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117397 while it was on sale for 180.

One of the best purchases i've made towards my Home Theatre Project

Cons: None, the system is amazing, these speakers have such an incredible amount of power, the clarity is great!

Other Thoughts: I love that the Faceplates on the speakers come off, this is a huge plus for those who are not fans of the cloth-like material that covers most speakers, and the finish still looks clean without it.

I would recommend these to anyone interested in a high volume Theatre project.
