I bought the matching set of fronts, center, and rear because of the deal they were running when I bought the Pioneer receiver. It is a HUGE speaker. I am looking into a smaller profile speaker to replace it, but want it to somewhat match.

Matches the rest of my Pioneer surround sound

It may be the reciever, but all the other speakers sound great. This speaker just has an odd tone, that almost sounds "too" natural if that makes sense, which isnt bad, BUT it sounds different from the rest of the matching Pioneer speakers ; Huge. This...

Wonderful Center Speaker


Make sure you have room if your upgrading from a small home theater in a box setup.

This Center speaker is great.The sound quality is a huge upgrade from my home theater in a box setup. This center speaker is HUGH. It's much larger then it looks in the pics. I made room for it especially at the $50 price I paid. It does need several...

Best Sounding but big box


The 5.1 set is a 2011 best sound award (SP-PK21BS) You may buy 5.1 set-up by buying separate speakers ((manufacturer date is April 2012)) The size is no problem for me

excellent sound in price range

size might a problem in small space

This thing is great.


Buy it, hell of a deal. Look at it this way, if you dont like it....put it in the bedroom for those extra loud Barry White music sessions.

Monsterous sound for a small price tag. Current price is great, even better when it goes on sale ; Moves a lot of air for a center channel, whilst still staying clean sounding

None to speak of. Some might not like the full time wire mesh grills. its a speaker, you listen to it...not stare at it

Look elsewhere


I want a different center piece.

Color and style matches the other pioneer speakers I bought with this

Out of the whole pioneer system (Pioneer SP-C21,Pioneer SP-FS51-LR,Pioneer SW-8, Pioneer SP-BS21-LR) This center piece is the weakest link. Sounds coming out of this center doesn't match the sides, sounds muffled and small

So far so good

Are these factory seconds?


It was a lot bigger in person than the picture looked. Check the measurements.

None. Didn't hook it up

The screws that mount the speakers to the partical board cabinet had competely pulled out, leaving the speaker falling loose from the cabinet. The other speaker, the grill had popped off and the screws for that one were working their way out also ; The...

Pioneer C21


I first bought 1 C21 with a pair FS51 to fulfill a matching LCR in my mid-size living room. I have been enjoying this set up since the day they were delivered. Then I came up an idea one day: how will it perform in stereo setup? C21 has an extra 5"...

price, best $50 center you can find on the market ; neutral and clear sound ; good bass ; young child/toddler safe

maybe too large for some TV stands/Entertainment center
