So I picked up 2 Pioneer SP-BS22-LR passive bookshelves and stole the Audiosource AMP-100 we were using to power the floorstanders in my living room, figured If I did not like them I would just send them back to best buy, I picked them up for 120 for the pair and I am using my O2/Odac as a preamp.
Steve Guttenberg and alot of other notable sites seem to shout praises for these things at this price and I gotta say they sound pretty good, I made some ****ty little pressboard stands with some scrap laying around, they are pretty lush with acoustic stuff but there does not seem to be much low/low mid presence, I do have a 8" powered sub I could use with these but then I would probably want to cut the speakers off around 100hz but I would need a reciever for that? I don't know much about the technicalities of passive speakers and the actives were my preference because of the simplicity.
After seeing this though I am wondering if I should do some A/B with the Rokit 6, I was only able to find the rokit 6's for 200 each but for 129 I am thinking they may be a better value HMMMMMMMM!
Anyways here is a photo of the Pioneers, they are sitting a little high haha if I keep them ill probably take an inch off the middle beams.
Thanks for the recommendations and stuff guys! what do you guys think? I am thinking I should order the Rokits and A/B.
Also the sub woofer I would be using stops working when it is planted on all 4 legs and if tilted backwards it starts working, you think this is just a loose wire inside?
