I have a ton of speaker wire since i've gone through my life usually using passive speakers.
I'll probably be picking these up in December, unless someone has a better alternative. ^_^
They might be gone in December. There's a new version out of that Pioneer speaker series (Best Buy carries them). Might be why Newegg is able to offer such good prices. Could be closing stock.
Before you buy in December, check again. There might be something different that is the best deal.
Nope. Those are not female RCA plugins. Those are standard speaker connection posts that allow bare wire connection or plugin of banana connectors. Most speakers use those these days, except for the very cheap ones that have the spring clip connections. Go look at other more expensive passive speakers, and you'll see the same thing.
I don't know whether they have the characteristics you want, but the Pioneer SP-BS41 ($65 off w/ promo code EMCJNNE72) are considered some of the best sounding speakers for the price.
WUT? cel and obobs are agreeing on stuff now? Must be the impending apocalypse... or the magic of the avatars.
Did you notice I flipped the image so that if you replied to me, or I to you, it would like two Scotty's turned talking to each other?
. . . which is another bizarre effect on these forums newbies most be experiencing at the moment, thanks to the avatars. (lol)
Yup, though I honestly expected you and obobs to be in disagreement.
There's a fine line between genius and madness. I'm still trying to figure out which side of that line this whole avatar thing falls on.
