    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 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
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, these 4" bookshelf will match nicely. Enjoy.
    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: Received my pair yesterday, and they are the cheaper version (plastic tweeter). Totally disappointed with Monoprice on the incorrect description.
    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.
    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?

    Monoprice 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: These are not self-powered/amplified speakers. The take speaker wire from Integrated Amplifier or Receiver.
    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    First Monoprice Letdown....
    Received these yesterday.

    First issue is with Monoprice's confusion over the specs of the speakers. You've probably noticed two different version in the pictures. One CLEARLY has a nicer soft dome tweeter, and the other just a cheap plastic tweeter. The nicer looking version has a inverted woofer dust cap. If you read the description, it clearly states a 0.75" silk dome tweeter (and is also corroborated in the Q&A section).

    The speakers I received are the cheaper version. So, they match some of the pictures, but not the description.

    On to the speakers; build quality is pretty low. I'm trying to be mindful of the price (still hard to be unbiased given the disappointment when I pulled the grills off to reveal such cheap drivers). About half of the driver screws aren't tightened all the way. Easy fix, but points to a clear lack of quality control. I will say that the binding posts are a nice touch and that the grill is surprisingly robust.

    The sound is about what I'd expect given the drivers; not much of any bass to speak of, and the high is fairly hot. They are currently playing in my main system. I'll give them some more time to get broken in, them move them to my computer system (what I purchased them for). I'm really thinking the tweeter will be too harsh for near-field environment.

    Have to say, I'm disappointed in Monoprice for their lack of accuracy in their description. I've reached out to customer support to see what my options are (would really like the nicer version, if they even exist). These will either go back, or end up in my garage system (currently a t-amp with Minimus 7's).

    If the version I received is correct, then I'd suggest save a bit more for something better (Micca?).

    Little gems.
    Two little gems with my Oneu ZYDZ040 and Monoprice DAC/AMP. Will add a monoprice subwoofer in a near future.

    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.

    It's unbelievable that a pair of speakers this inexpensive can put out a sound this crisp without being too bright, and deep without being shaky. They won't overwhelm a living room but they will easily fill it, and will look neat and unassuming while doing so. I'd buy them again without question if I had the need.
