No. You need more of a PA, individually powered speaker system for that. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/EPS500MP3--behringer-eps500mp3?mrkgadid=3301332222&mrkgcl=28&mrkgen=gpla&mrkgbflag=0&mrkgcat=livesound&lighting=&acctid=21700000001645388&dskeywordid=92700046934840513&lid=92700046934840513&ds_s_kwgid=58700005285189072&ds_s_inventory_feed_id=97700000007215323&dsproductgroupid=427154339705&product_id=EPS500MP3&prodctry=US&prodlang=en&channel=online&storeid=&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&adpos=largenumber&locationid=9061271&creative=280136034928&targetid=pla-427154339705&campaignid=1465475237&awsearchcpc=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwxdSHBhCdARIsAG6zhlVVylTKo9ACO83JgFFj6iEUaukNNnr-doqhz-trob6HEWcL6k4OjAsaAmiaEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Looks like the whole series is on sale (probably form all authorized Sony Dealers):

SSCS3 Floor (single [amazon.com]) $98
SSCSE Atomos (Pair [amazon.com]) $98
SACS9 Sub [amazon.com] $98
SSCS8 center [amazon.com]$73
weird to see all this threadcrapping when basically all of the top audio sites reviewers' consensus is that these are fantastic bang for the buck, period. and zero contest certainly, at this half price cost. are there better speakers that are more expensive? absolutely, but that is not the target consumer here.

who recommended the jamos for a "similar" price? maybe regular price? because the cheapest i could find right now was easily 2x the cost, lol.

and the guy complaining about these not having bass, like..look at the given frequency response range, what were you expecting?

anyway, haters aside, this is a great deal, op! and, as another poster noted, there's comparable pricing at other retailers, for those of us who don't want to support amazon Smilie
This is the best price you can get for the Sony SSCS5. I bought mine for the same price around black friday last year and they are a great entry level speakers. So, best price in the past 8 months at least on Amazon.

great speakers, great price!!!

for me though, i already own these but have been looking at the atmos add-on speakers..but even at half price (<$100), seems i still can't justify the price difference for the add-ons from the pair of Pioneer SP-BS22A-LR i got on sale for $130 ($130-minus these core speakers for $73 is $57), which are bookshelf plus atmos built into the tops.

still looking for another pair of those for around the $130 on sale i bought them for, but they seem to be maybe sold out everywhere and/or discontinued.. :'(

Quote from gabe23111 :
Looks like the whole series is on sale (probably form all authorized Sony Dealers):
SSCS5 is by far the best value and highly recommended! The SSCS3 are also very nice, but hard to justify almost 3x increase for them over the SSCS5. The Atmos are also very nice if used as overhead speakers. I can NOT recommend the subwoofer at all though. Not mentioned above, but the center channel in this series is also a bit weak for the price.

The SSCSE Atmos speakers mount very nicely above the SSCS3 speakers and have a keyhole mount for wall mounting. Wall mounting didn't do much at all for me other than increasing the front soundstage

For a relatively low cost, these speakers make a great setup. They won't compare to the $1000+ speakers out there, but they're still very much usable and enjoyable for a small fraction of the price. I've got a 7.1.4 setup with these and love them.

Nice speakers but I prefer both jamo 801s and 803s vs these for a similar price.

I been using these in an atmos set up since march. Great sound but needs a decent sub and center channel. Great for movies and midline for music.

I agree. I returned them after a week.

​I am not a speaker snob either...
