    Select 4-inch 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers

    There is no more important piece of equipment in your audio signal path than the loudspeaker. Speakers are the last link in the electromagnetic chain before tuning into acoustic energy. No other piece works harder, either. While many manufacturers focus on style and appearance, Monoprice does the exact opposite. For our new Select Series, we listened to what our customers want and then we spent countless hours listening to and evaluating speakers. Our engineers and audio experts have come up with speakers that will not only please your ears, but your wallet as well. Oh yeah, and they look pretty darn good, too.

    Sound Quality

    Sound Quality: Life is too short for speakers that don't sound great! We believe that the whole point of listening to music is to hear it as the artist intended. Our engineers and audio experts have spent countless hours listening to and comparing various speakers until we were satisfied we had found models that fit our demanding standards.

    Style: While Monoprice believes in function over form, there is nothing wrong with having speakers that look good, too. The simple yet elegant appearance of the brushed black finish is complemented by the black woofer cone and tweeter dome. A black cloth speaker grill is also included.

    Versatile: Select Series speakers from Monoprice sound big enough to be used as the main left/right speakers, yet are small enough to be used as satellite speakers in a 5.1 or more channel speaker system.

    Easy to imagine, difficult to execute. Select Series speakers carry you to acoustic nirvana.

    Well-defined, punchy bass. Check. Clear and articulate mids? Check. Crisp and expressive highs? Check. Monoprice Select Series speakers sound big enough to serve as the main left/right speakers in a stereo system, yet are small enough to serve as the satellite speakers in a multi-channel surround system. Featuring heavy-duty five-way binding posts, they are versatile enough connect to any system.

    Can these be mounted to a wall? if so what mount works?
    Lee W on Feb 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The 13778 bookshelf speakers would not be designed to be mounted to a wall and would not have any mounting options. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    I see 2 different tweeters shown in the photos, one a silk dome as described and another showing a low cost poly-carbonate used in many low cost speakers. Which tweeter is installed in these speakers?
    Alan M on Nov 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The pictures may be different reflections. The video is froma different product and will be removed. The Select 4" is a 0.75" silk dome.
    I have a Fiio A1 2 x 14W amplifier - would that be sufficient to drive these speakers? I'm not looking to get crazy volume, just using them in a small office.
    Aldo C on Nov 27, 2017
    I'm not an audiophile by any means; would there be any reason why you couldn't lay these on their side?
    Ryan L on Jul 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Without getting deep the easy answer is yes, if you had no other choice. But, if you are thinking inside between 2 shelves I wouldn't do it.
    These do have a very acceptable sound for the price, especially if you would be using them for casual music listening. If you were going to use them as part of a theatre speaker set up I would not recommend it. The speaker design it such that you want the tweeters over top and if possible at ear level for the best sound.
    Are these compatible with your adjustable hight speaker stands (product #3022)?
    James M on Jan 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. The mounting mechanism on the stand is not at all compatible with the speakers, and even if it was, I'd be reluctant to use them together. The speakers are probably too heavy for the stands.
    Can this speaker be used with 8 ohm amplifier?
    A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: They say 8 ohm on the back
    Are these shielded?
    A shopper on Jan 5, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No I do not believe that they are. I’m 99% sure they are not. Usually they aren’t unless stated FYI.
    Which monoprice speakers would the 25W tube amp hybrid work well with? Can it power the 13778 (select 4in) and the 13706 (select 5.25in) speakers well? What about the retro 4 in bookshelf?

    Retro Bookshelf Speakers 4-inch 2-way, Black (pair)
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this tube audio system. The 5.25" Select's will give best bass performance, the Retro's are the best overall sounding, and the 4" Select's are the lowest priced. All three will work very well with this amp. The choice is up to you, your style, and your budget.
    Will I be able to connect aux cables directly to these speakers? And if so, will it work with 1/8" connector, or does it need to be 1/4"?
    A shopper on Mar 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, just standard speaker wire

    When I received these speakers from Monoprice I was extremely surprised how HEAVY the box was, for smaller bookshelf speakers I expected the box to be much lighter. Once I opened the box I was extremely impressed right off the bat.. the construction quality of the speakers is fantastic, they don't feel cheap like some of the other bookshelf speakers I've owned in the past.

    The next thing I noticed is how high quality the terminals on the speakers were, the binding post terminals that are installed on these speakers are fantastic, they work perfectly with banana plugs and are also perfect for other connectors and will work with bare wire as well.

    Once I hooked the speakers up to the Hybrid Tube Amp combined with the Affinity Premium Banana Plug Speaker cables, I was amazed.. just shocked.. the sounds that were coming out of these speakers reminded me of high quality studio speakers.

    Being a music creator myself, I'm familiar with brands such as Infinity, M-Audio and JBL and I can rest comfortably saying that these speakers are in the same class as these types of brands.

    Some might be reading this review and thinking, well you only tested them with the other Monoprice items, which is actually incorrect, I went as far as hooking these speakers up to my Lepai LP-2020A with standard bare speaker cable also, and guess what? The sound still remained great, it wasn't as loud as the Monoprice receiver but the Lepai is rated for less wattage.

    I recommend these for any audiophile out there, if you want to hear what you've been missing in your music all these years, pick up a pair of these speakers, pair it with a good receiver and you have a winning combination for all types of music.

    Thanks to Monoprice for creating such a fantastic sounding pair of bookshelf speakers at an affordable price!

    PROS: High Quality Construction (Including Terminals)

    Easy To Setup

    Fantastic Sound Quality

    Sleek And Stylish Look

    Removable Grills

    CONS: None at all!

    Excellent speakers but bright
    I purchased these from the monoprice page on ebay. I was looking for good bookshelf speakers to be powered with my Lepai 2020 Amp for a small bedroom and these are 81db so they do not get too loud. They pack a good bass punch if you need that but are neutral sounding on the low end. However they're quite bright.. something that I had to fix with playing the equalizer and turning down the treble. After that they sound awesome.

    These are not as good as my Pioneer BS-22's which are more than double the price but for the money, I'm quite happy with the sound I get out of these. If I didn't have to play with the EQ settings, these would be perfect but I still like my purchase. My wife loves these as well so no problems with WAF.

    PROS: Excellent music reproduction. Ideal for ipad/ iphone listening in a low volume bedroom. Very good bass, mid bass, mids.

    CONS: Very bright presence. I had to lower treble via EQ and then they were perfect.

    Worth the $50 Black Friday price I paid
    After many reviews I gave these a chance. Figured at $50 for Black Friday it was worth a shot.
    I stream via Bluetooth from my phone to these thru a Yamaha 202 receiver and 12 AWG cables. With that combination I find these to be quite pleasing at low to mid volumes. Once turned up they do lose a bit of quality, but at $50 they are worth the money.
    I did also purchase a pair of Polk T15's for a Black Friday price of $50 as well. I have found these to be much more pleasing to the ear. Though I do find the Monoprice speakers to be acceptably revealing in the mids and highs I found the Polks to be even more so. Below 80hz the Polks were the clear winner.

    Best sounding speakers at this price point!
    I used these in my daughters room as stereo speakers on a Yamaha receiver. Good neutral sound, decent bass for it's size. They do need some break-in to relieve the sharpness in treble. At this price point, I'm very pleased.

    excellent speaker
    The output sound absolutely well balanced, I believe it is with very careful design from enclosure size with acoustic drivers mix. It is excellent.! Thanks Monoprice

    PROS: Perfect size with excellent balanced sound, easy set up

    CONS: none

    Fantastic value for the price
    Small package, but packs a punch. I connected them to a turntable and amp, and got excellent results. I feared that the lack of a sub would be a no go, but I figured that it's worth a try for such a low investment. The sound coming out of the pair was great for the room, and perfect for occasional use. Obviously, it's not a top of the line setup, but you get great value for the money.
