I think the one in the pack is an ESW-8, whereas the one above is a "Power 10." Not sure about the differences, though.

it doesn't seem that these two are the same subs... it says 100W OP posted and 200W for the package

so in total... this would be $270 instead of $300... but the difference would be the 100W vs 200W sub

Tazmania99 11-22-2012 11:08 PM

ESW-8 has 8-inch driver, while Power 10 has 10-inch driver. It is also on sale [newegg.com] with promo code EMCJJHG76 for $120 shipped free.

You can't go wrong with this combo for a small room, and these are the best price I have ever seen. I purchased the Energy Take 5 3 months ago from eBay for $170 and the Power 10 from Newegg for $180. Yes, call me dumb and I thought they were good deals at that time....

Thinking about going for these speakers with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...0130-L031B sub, which will be $189.99 at the time. Will be $10 more than the other package but the sub appears to be better quality.

when will that sub go on sale for $190? or what's the coupon code? that sounds like a sweet deal

You will want a sub.

100 W sub vs 200 W
 
I was looking for these speakers and sub. The combination is 280$. The sub says 100w. Amazon has these speakers and 200 W sub for 299 here

Slickdeal! Ordered these yesterday for $150. Cancelled and reordered for $130. Thanks OP!

thilehoffer 11-23-2012 05:51 AM

Too bad I bought these for $150 in the spring. Paired with a good sub these sound great. They worked with the regular speaker stands you can get at Best Buy.

DukeofDeals 11-23-2012 05:52 AM

Bought these for $150 less than 10 hours ago on NewEgg and the bastards wouldn't credit the $20. Canceled and reordered, but man, the NewEgg I used to know would have helped out instead of making it difficult.

evilnewbie01 11-23-2012 05:56 AM

I have these speakers and they are great but the one thing I really hate about these speakers are the rubber sticker feet. They leave a yellow mess underneath and move around and "slide" off the speakers way too easily.

Apoptosis 11-23-2012 06:01 AM

Any comments on the included 8" sub with the Energy Take Classic 5.1 set on Amazon for $299 vs. buying this setup from Newegg and adding a sub like the Polk PSW-10? Looks like the Energy subs are pretty pricy on their own.

vijayendra_29 11-23-2012 06:02 AM

Pulled the trigger finally after waiting for long time for price to come down from 150 :P ... now i would need a separate subwoofer and a receiver to go with it. Any good suggestion for a medium size living room??

Also, are wires long enough to place the satellite speakers around the living room? wish they were wireless compatible lol

The Polk PSW-10 gets awesome reviews. I actually just bought the PSW-10 and the Energy Take 5 set. I'm not sure about the Energy sub, but I paid less going Polk/Energy and like the look of the Polk better.

Polk PSW-10. On sale now $80 at Amazon and Newegg.

So I've read that it is important to have a matched sub and speaker set. Is this true? Have you noticed any "conflicts" with your setup?

Are you an elitist or a extremely audiophile? If no, then you'll be happy. :)

Honestly, I just bought the setup so no comment, but from my research you should pair the main speakers and the sub doesn't matter as long as it produces the frequencies that you're main speakers can't. If you have a good receiver, it'll handle parsing out the frequencies on its own. Both the Polk and the Energy get awesome reviews for the price.

I'm definitely not either of those but I did stay at a holiday inn :cool: (bad joke alert!) In that case I think this deal plus the Polk Sub is a great price for two fantastic products! Thanks for the input! rep!

i bought the set with energy speakers and energy sub from amazon yesterday for 300.....should i cancel that order and get this set instead?

i read that the subs are different...but are the speakers the same? i m thinking if they are, then i'll get the speakers and then polk sub....any suggestions.....please reply quick :)

Phordee 11-23-2012 06:41 AM

Bought these last night for $20 more. Had to instant chat with Newegg support to cancel and reorder with the promo code. Thanks OP!

I just placed an order for the Dayton Sub 1200 (http://slickdeals.net/f/5545264-Dayton-Sub-1200-12-home-theater-subwoofer-filler-108-XX-shipped-after-5-coupon-from-Parts-Express)

Now I am wondering if this sub will over power these speakers.

Any ideas?

OstrichSak 11-23-2012 06:45 AM

Three pages and all I'm reading is discussion about subs and receivers. The only mention of the actual item in this deal is that the sticky rubber feet don't still so good but I'm wall-hanging so that doesn't apply to me. Can anyone comment on the actual speakers in this deal? I already have a 10" sub and just need to replace my aging Onkyo HT in a box speakers. I assume these will be better but how good are they? Worth pulling the trigger for $130? There was a Newegg deal the other day that I missed for a $300 5.0 set for $140 that I wish I had pulled the trigger on. This 'deal' doesn't seem like a super deal based strictly on money difference unless these never have a discount or something. What am I missing?

msgsbox 11-23-2012 06:51 AM

Sorry for newbie questions.

1. I see "Speaker In" on the back of subroofer. Were speakers supposed to be connected to Receiver?

2. Do we need to buy wire or it comes with wire?

Thanks!

Read the reviews on Newegg and Amazon. For the price you pay (most of the reviews are for people buying them at $150-200), they are a great deal.

KJD 11-23-2012 06:58 AM

I have had Energy speakers for years. Its the same company that made Mirage and Sound Dynamics brands (good stuff) For the size and cost of this set, Its a steal!!
Also just fyi, the Energy subs are really great for their small size. You will be happy with these, Especially at the price!!

bhoom 11-23-2012 06:59 AM

In for one, I remember wanting these at 199. Thanks OP.

Any receiver or sub deals? I hope there is a 5.1 receiver deal for <100 and this will be awesome.

The speakers will work fine with your receiver. But you will want to add a sub for sure as there isn't much of a bottom end on these little speakers.

PSW-10 is generally considered garbage by most folks. I would steer clear personally.

You do not have to match your sub to your speakers. It is important for your front 3 to be timbre matched, but the sub doesn't matter.

jpw21683 11-23-2012 07:08 AM

Awesome speakers. I purchased them for $150 on sale 3 years ago. At $120, they're a steal.

You will need to buy speaker wire. I have this set of speakers and have been quite happy with them. It does however bear mentioning that you can get the pioneer Pioneer SP-PK21BS set sans the sub by buying two pairs of SP-BS21-LR at $40 and the center SP-C21 for $50 which also comes to $130 and that the pioneers may have better sound quality. CNET seemed to think so at least.

Have you even tried the psw10? I was going to get the psw505 based on forum recommendations, but picked up the psw10 from bestbuy for $60 open box, and is perfect for me (12x17 open room). I compared that to a $400 down firing jbl 10" and the jbl didnt even come close. It really depends on what your expectations are and how much you rely on other ppls reviews.

I've read mixed things about this sub. I'm wondering if it is better to wait and see if something better pops up. I'm assuming you would want a 100 watt 10in to match this set?

I bought the yamaha yesterday and this speaker system.

I bought this subwoofer - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6882290034

I read anything more that 10" may be too much and it won't sound well.

I also bought 2-100 foot 16 gauge speaker wire, a set of banana plugs. An optical audio wire. (Amazon was better for the cables and accessories)

And atlantic wall mounts for the speakers. (These were ~$30 shipped)

My total cost was around $620 with tax and ship included.

I also bought the panasonic st50 for $999 not tax and free ship from paulstv.

Yes, I've heard the PSW10 on several occasions. I use a BIC F12 in a room nearly identical to your measurements and it does the job very well. I plan to add a second before too long actually.

These Energy speakers are the best under $200, if you want wall-mount/bookshelf speakers. If you want towers check out the polk monito 60's for front $99 each and CS1 or CS2 center, and matching monitor 30's/40's rear all on sale currently at newegg. For rears i would recommend bookshelf only since you can place them at or above ear level. Some people like the similar Pioneer set, which is also good.

Subwoofer does NOT have to match the speakers, and is one of the most important component of your system. Spend the most you can on it, but try a couple out, see what u like and dont go overboard.

is this the one?

http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-...B0002Z2416

any affordable/bit cheaper tower speaker/woofer?

do I have to get 2 of these? or one is enough? is this only a woofer and speaker 2in1?

I prefer this or any flat shape over the boxes cos I hardly have any space around my tv. i live in one bedroom apartment.

For some reason I just purchased these speakers. Next up a sub and receiver. Repped

BIC F12 without question is the best sub under $300, but the thing is massive... PSW is similar but slightly smaller which is why I was going to get that. But I wanted my set in the living room and didnt want all the speakers to look like huge furniture, so went with the smaller psw10. It would have been a different story it this was for a dedicated HT room. All Im saying is that a $60 sub worked better for me than a $400 one, so try them out and if it works for you save your money.

The Monitor 60s are tower speakers and are meant to be used as your Left and Right mains. They are not a sub and one would still be required with them if you want to get the most out of your system. Here's an old pic of my 60s, CS1, and F12 setup.

http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-...B0002KVQBA

I would say these are pretty good for a mid size room and would fit great with this this set. At 79.99 (Amazon) they are a steal with this set.

so you got 2 tower speaker left & right plus one sub woofer on the left ?

and the receiver in the middle in the tv stand?

looks good got i got similar tv stand and have no space for box speakers.

now i need to find a decent price 2 floorstanding speakers, i don't think I can afford to pay more than $80 for each and $160 for 2 tower speakers

OstrichSak 11-23-2012 09:36 AM

BTW, for those asking about the PSW10: I've been using this sub in our master bedroom for many years now and it's fantastic for this application. We have the PWS505B in our living room (larger more open area) and it's also been fantastic. Our theater has two AV123 15's so it's not that I'm not sure what good/full sound sounds like or I don't know what I'm talking about here. The Polk subs represent a fantastic value in powered subs and for the money when you find them on deals here and there I can't even build a powered sub for that kind of money. I know because I have built them before and while they may perform better to the average user looking for a sub to pair with these speakers it won't matter. For under $100 w/free shipping it's going to be tough to beat.

aksakhil 11-23-2012 09:45 AM

Pulled the trigger! been wanting these for a long time. I guess I will go with the BIC F12 sub. Got to look out for a good deal on receiver. Any suggestions which receiver will work best.

It won't overpower the speakers if you don't set the level too high. You need to balance the level of the sub with the speakers, so as long as you play at levels the speakers can handle you should be fine. A better sub will give better low frequency extension and also the ability to play louder without distortion. If you do intend to play the system at very high output levels then these speakers will most likely be the limiting factor.

Question for you guys. I bought these speakers last night along with the Polk PSW505 Sub http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6882290130. I live in an apartment and upon reading some more of the reviews today, I see that this may not be the best choice. Will there be much difference between using this sub with low volume vs using a smaller sub at a higher volume?

It's not just that it's the fact that the larger 12" sub plays at a lower frequency (top end and low end) than the 10" sub. Simply put the gap between these speakers and a PWS10 would be smaller than these speakers and a PWS505 which would sound better to some. The lower bass of the 12 may be better for LFS in movies in such but I question how much you would get to utilize either a PWS505 or a PWS10 in an apartment. If it were me I would have gone with the PWS10 for your setup/needs and even then you will have to keep the gain low to keep neighbors happy. I think people are crapping on the PWS10 w/o reason and some are getting the idea that it's a POS but I can tell you that it most certainly is not. It's a VERY solid performer and is capable of a LOT of sound.

Thanks, I'll keep this in mind. If I can get newegg to cancel my order from last night, I may just go ahead and pick up the PWS10...save $100 in the process too.

I would. Especially in an apartment. I think you will be quite happy with the PWS in an apt with this setup and will find yourself lowering the volume to keep the neighbors happy.

Addiaidan 11-23-2012 12:50 PM

We just bought the $300 Yahama receiver from Amazon yesterday and this speaker set from Newegg. Planning to get the PSW10 sub for $80 from Newegg. I prefer Newegg since I need to pay tax in Amazon. Question, where & what kind of speaker wire should I get since they are not included. I know nothing about audio system. Just trying to get a good basic sytem for the new house. Thanks.

good question :) I just bought the same combination and was researching on what wires I need by looking at the rear images of the receiver, the speakers, woofers etc. agree it is slightly overwhelming, can someone be gracious enough to list down what kind of wires are required for the entire setup (receiver->speaker, receiver->sub). Thanks!

This is what I'm getting and asked an audiophile and 14 guage is plenty. 12 would be best but for the cost and sound production this plenty.

What's a good receiver to go with this?

blazenfire 11-23-2012 05:48 PM

I just bought these speakers and have a few rookie questions. I am planning on pairing these up with the Yamaha receiver I bought yesterday. As far as the subwoofer is concerned, I have this outdated Panasonic HT system [newegg.com]that I picked up for free from a friend. It sounds great, but lacks many modern features. The subwoofer is listed as

250W (1kHz, 6 ohms, 10% THD) (RMS)
95W (45Hz-120Hz, 6 ohms, 1% THD) (FTC)

I also ended up purchasing speaker wire RCA 16G from Amazon. Three questions

- Can I use that subwoofer ?
- Do I need banana plugs ? (I googled them, and found that they are more of a convenience and aesthetic thing)
- Does my setup need anything else to go with my new 60 Vizio ? :)

uhsarp 11-23-2012 06:05 PM

How do these compare to the Logitech z-680 or z-5500 speakers? I have a z-680 with a blown subwoofer and I'm currently using the remaining speakers with Sony STR-DH720 Receiver. It sounds good but I can't compare them to Energy speakers as I never used them. Any comments?

energy speakers are home theater speakers which means they are made to fill a large area with sound. computer speakers like your logitech are made for close proximity hearing such as in front of a computer.

if your logitech speakers is still within the warranty period, you can call in for a warranty exchange. they are pretty good with that

How are these music-wise? I've heard mixed reviews as far as that goes. Obviously they can't contend with something like the Pioneer floor standing and bookshelf speakers, but just how well do they perform, especially with high res sources?

For a home theater with 5.1 surround setup you need 6 speakers.
Front Left and Right => you bought these
Subwoofer => You bought this
Center Channel => You need to buy this
Surround Left and Right => You need to buy these

See this link fr speaker placement
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-iLSc...ement.html

Edit:
1) That is why this set is a good deal. You get 5 speakers in the set and buy a subwoofer to complete it.
2) Edit 5.1 setup is minimum, there is 7.1 and 7.2 setup as well. 5.1 is good enough for home consumers.
