Energy CB-20 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Reviewed

 

A slightly larger bookshelf design than the CB-10, the CB-20 offers greater bass extension from its 6.5inch driver as well as a more neutral and balanced harmonic balance. With excellent coherency, musicality and transparency, the CB-20 is a solid...

The CB-20 provides a very well-rounded, smooth, and detailed presentation with plenty of punch and dynamic range ; The CB-20 looks sensational, doesn't take up a lot of space or weigh a lot, and offers on-board mounting capability ; The CB-20 doesn't...

The CB-20 exhibited just a tinge of bass muddiness on the occasional track ; The CB-20 only comes in one finish (High gloss black baffle with black ash cabinet) ; The CB-20 only provides one set of binding posts, preventing bi-wiring/bi-amping

Energy CB-20 Loudspeakers

 

A rule of thumb among audiophiles is that the better something looks, the worse it sounds. If this were true, the Energy CB-20 could not qualify as an audiophile speaker. It's attractive enough to match any décor, or the taste of any age group or...

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.

Excellent sounding bookshelf speakers

 

I felt these were a very solid bargain, The price at Newegg was much lower than other vendors that had these speakers in stock.

Good clean sound, Using as front L/R in 5.1 surround system with mid level Yamaha receiver. Using Energy CC-5 center channel speaker and Bose 161 speakers as rear surround, and a Yamaha 10" sub, After a little tweaking I am very pleased with the sound....

None yet.

Great

 

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...

Great subwoofer

 

Thanks newegg for still carrying this amazing brand!

Great looking subwoofer , matches with all my black ash speakers. I have one set of rc10 as front speakers, rc -lcr as center and a pair of cc-5 as satellites . I paid just 129$ for this subwoofer , free shipping . Great deal for me.

Great Speakers

 

These speakers sound great. They are clear even when cranked up I don't hear any distortion in them, but I am not a audiophile just a normal music lover.

None that I can think of.

Worth every penny. Efficient and very elegant,

 

see above

I have had these speakers for the best part of six years. They have and are still performing splendidly. The subwoofer is of course indispensable. For the quality you get the price is absolutely very reasonable. Worth every penny. Efficient and very...

Great for the price

 

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...

I haven't unpacked them yet but they will be added to our Energy Speaker whole house system which is made up of 18 Energy speakers.

Poor warranty service
