energy cb-5 speakers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm sorta just getting into the whole audio world and was wondering if these were a good deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882269007

I currently just have a sony mch-3600 and a creative p7800 computer speaker woofer hooked up as the sub, this setup is getting me by, but not having heard a lot of current stuff i was wondering if its time for an upgrade, these were free btw.

I'm actually about to upgrade my computer case to get ready for water cooling, but if you guys think i should upgrade my audio first well then... Its not like Berkeley leaves me time to game that much anyways... haha...

I had the Energy Take 5 speakers they are great for my taste mainly vocals and clear. The cb-5 is a bookshelf speakers I suspect it can only be better than the one I had. For the price I think probably a great deal. The down side to Energy speakers are they max out around 14 gauge wired, the pro audio world usually use 10 or 12 gauge wired. You can read the reviews on the Take 5 classic speakers on amazon got tons of great feedback, the Satellite speakers are 3" vs 4.5" woofer on the cb-5.
