Tacoma CB10 Thunderchief Acoustic Bass


I bought this bass two months ago. I love its feel and sound. Its great for sitting around doing acoustic rehearsals and cuts through fairly well providing eveyone is unplugged. Plugged in it also sounds great and has a unique sound. I also have an...

Tacoma CB-10


I looked at acoustic bass guitars for many years before I finally found one I liked. Most have no real acoustic sound and when you plug them in they just sound like an electric bass. The Tacoma sounds good without an amp and produces a lot more sound...

Reasonably good speaker!


It is a good speaker compared to the selling price.

Overall, it is all-round propensity. The advantage is, the sound of the electronic musical instrument is really great.

The disadvantage is, the sound of the drum is insufficient.

I would purchase again and do recommend.

They are perfect for a medium size bedroom Also for a living space of 24'-17'

I have not encountered any problems with my CB-10s It took some time to break in but once they did it was like night and day. I have then powered by a Denon with an 80 watt per channel. They sound better with the volume up loud. I wish they would run...

Energy's powered subwoofers are the weak link in their speaker systems plus Energy won't allow 3rd party repair centers to work on them by with holding needed repair parts. Instead al speakers must be sent to a Michigan repair center that charges...

Poor warranty service

Good sound from small(ish) speakers


Bigger sound than I expected from a smaller-sized bookshelf speakers. They don't have the deep base sounds I had previously from a set of large floor speakers (as expected), but still a good, balanced sound. And, having purchased them on sale, the...

Rocking bookshelves


Picked this up for a small system in the cabin. Paired with energy 8inch sub. Great pair of speakers. Little less "tinny" then the klipsh pro-monitors. Very high quality construction. They definitely were helped by the sub having such a small woofer....
