Premium Home Theater Satellite Speaker (Pair), Black
Get great sounding stereo speakers or expand your existing 5.1-channel system to 7.1 or 9.1 using these Premium Home Theater Satellite Speakers from Monoprice!
These satellite speakers are the exact same speakers that are included in our Premium 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System (PID 10565). Each speaker features a 3" polypropylene mid-range driver and a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter. They can support up 100 watts of power and have an impedance of 8 ohms.
The speakers handle frequencies from 110Hz to 20KHz ±3dB, with the crossover between the mid-range and tweeter drivers set to 3.5KHz. They measure only about 6.9" x 4.3" x 4.3" (HWD) and weigh about 2.9 lbs each, making them easy to mount almost anywhere. They are equipped with a universal 1/4" threaded insert mounting option and have rear-firing ports, so they sound best when there is some breathing room behind them.

Questions and Answers
PROS: Big, crystal clear sound and inexpensive in comparison to similar speakers from big name brands.
CONS: None so far.
PROS: Great sound, great value
CONS: Could be a bit more stylish, not 100% compatible with 6979 speaker wall mount bracket
The only thing I did not like about the appearance was the bright silver monoprice logo, which I found a bit flashy. I colored them with a permanent marker and they blend in better and look a little more high end now.
The only negative I found, and this isn't with the speakers themselves, is that the speakers have a threaded screw hole in the back for mounting but mine did not include any screws. This required a trip to the hardware store which was an extra hassle. Monoprice should definitely include a standard length screw in each speaker that would work with most any mount.
PROS: Good sound for a fairly small speaker
CONS: Mountain screws for hanging were not included
PROS: These small inexpensive speakers produce a very good sound and for the price are a very good value. The wire connections are spring loaded. Just strip the wire depress the button and the wire is securely gripped.
CONS: The speakers are not compatible with the Monoprice 3022 speaker stands. The speakers have a 1/4-20 threaded hole for mounting at the back. The hardware supplied with the Monoprice stands is much smaller. Moreover the speakers are a bit too heavy for the stands making them all too easy to tip over. On a rug, they will tip over. I circumvented this by adding stick-on feet to the front of the stand to move the center of mass backward.
CONS: logo on grill
My rating of 6/10 is for the overall experience, not just for the quality of the speakers.
Speakers are fine. Sound pretty good considering the listed price.
I ordered 2 cables, 2 ipad cases and a tiny camera remote along with these 2 small-ish speakers. Shipping and handling was $52.33. DHL charged me an extra $44 to get it across the border.
Monoprice, do you guys ever think you'll open up a distribution centre here in Canada. I'm betting it will be a profitable endeavor, given the similar complaints my friends have about this issue.
I'd ignored Amazon for a while in favor of Monoprice, but I think it's definitely worth reconsidering......
PROS: Small and compact
How can you go wrong matching all 7 speakers? These sound great. They are an excellent low cost option for a complete speaker system. Are they the best? Nope. Are they very good? Yes.
I would easily recommend these speakers.
PROS: Great sound. Easy to install. Balanced system
CONS: Not the best looking speakers around.
