This review is from: ONKYO SKS-HT870 7.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System
Low cost, Detailed sound, included speaker wire, Nice look
Included speaker wire is pretty thin
I enjoyed this 7.1 set up very much and owned it for a year. I agree with Tom on his review.
These speakers sound best in mid sized room, I ran these in an 11.5 x 11.5 and a 14.5 x 11 size rooms and they filled the space real well. I tried them in a 26 x 15.5 and although they sounded good, they didn't fill the room.
The towers and center bring some good detail, the satellites however, have only a single mid/woofer driver with no tweeter. Don't let this stop you from a purchase, as much as some so-called experts tried telling me that the speaker was incapable of reproducing a life-like sound, they were dead wrong. These satellites produced some pretty amazing sound.
Like Tom mentioned, the sub won't shake anything around you but does okay for low volume stuff. I had an 8" energy sub that I paired with the Onk sub and I could bottom them both out with heavy material.
I never did use the included speaker wire, I had upgraded to 14awg and that worked fine.
The bottom line here is the value. Rated at 130 max power, a decent size AVR can run these with ease and the sale price makes them a bonus buy.
For small to mid size rooms, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
