Pair (good question though).

Came across this particular mod of the Insignia speaker over at the Polk Audio Forum. Figure some of you Insignia owners may be interested....

That would be great if we only knew how he acquired that crossover.

Ouch, there goes my cheap speaker recommendation. At $80 I say save your money up for something else.

I know it's not nearly as good a deal but are these not worth even $72 a pair?

^i'm sure they are still good speakers for $80 a pair, but i too will wait for the price to drop below (at least <$50) before i buy them! pairing them up with a t-amp would be nice too.

It has been suggested that the parts used to make these speakers might cost more than $35 for the pair. In fact, I just found out recently (from a friend of mine who's an employee at Best Buy) that the invoice BB paid for these speakers are actually slightly less than $30 (BB employees can purchase them for $31 a pair, that's 105% invoice). So, yes, even at $35 BB was making a healthy margin (~20%) on these speakers. Moral of the story? Hold out for a price drop!
