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...

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....

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...

Worked well for a while

 

I'm a bit disappointed in this product, although with a quick google search it seems these are known for bad amplifiers. I checked the power board on the amp to see if any of the caps looked bad but they all appeared normal. Even so, I'm going to spend...

I bought this about 3 years ago and it served it's purpose valiantly for most of that time. I was initially enamored with this subwoofer for the excellent build quality of the box. Nice finish, high quality sturdy grill, double down firing ports, even...

The amplifier died on me last year after 2 years of light use. It seemed like the output was declining steadily towards the end of its life. I had paired it with a set of Polk monitor 70 series II's a few months ago and barely noticed lack of bass as...

Great Value and performance

 

This sub fills in the bottom end nicely. Sounds great even when when watching tv, blu ray movies make this sub shine. BASS!

These sub was a perfect match for my RC Micros, the price made the choice even easier to make. I have not completed the break in phase yet, the sound continues to improve.

Wonderful

 

This is my set up - Pioneer 1021 7.1 receiver - These 2 energy cf-70 use as main speakers - One set of micro 5 speakers ( center, surround rear and back ) - Energy S10.3 Subwoofer - Samsung 6500 blu ray player - Marantz cc55 cd player - Marantz eq 20...

Overall, these speakers are good for the price $400 a pair, unbeatable price for the sound. Depend on what receiver you have, but I would recommend that go with a good receiver, at least $500 receiver like Pioneer-elite, denon, harman kardon, marantz....
