Good Speaker, Great Value


I am using this center channel speaker with the SS-F7000 towers and SS-B1000 bookshelf speakers in a 5.1 surround configuration.

Clear mids and highs, Low price

Underpowered for top-model center channel, speaker wire

bass performance center speaker


Great Sound from a Solid based speaker, heavy in size and more Bass Response than your conmmon higher tweeter type speakers. Will handle Power with ease, play it loud and strong, sounds better loudly!
