Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair is rated 4.3571 out of 5 by 308.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from not audiophile but so whatthis is alot more speaker than i expected at this price. no they will not fill your house with music but if that is what you want you shouldnt buy such a small speaker. but for a bathroom stereo a desktop or something for a kids room this is deffinately what you want. im running these off a Lepai LP-269FS 4x45W it runs them as close to perfect as i could hope. i will buy a couple more set ups like these for random places in the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The B652 6-1/2' Bookshelf SpeakersThe Design Of The Speakers Caught my Eye Right Always. and When I Receive My Pair I Was Really Surprise At The Sound These Little Speakers Put Out. and The Small Room That I Have Them in Makes it Sound Even More Louder, and With More Bass. So It's a Perfect Fit For Me. I'm Glad I Found Out about Part Express.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the moneyHad these a couple of weeks now. Hooked up to a flat screen with a Lepai LP-2020A+ (that I purchased from Parts Express) and they are working great. More power from this setup than I need. I jacked the mini amp to the audio out on the tv, turned the volume on the mini amp 2/3 the way up and this allows me to use my remote to get the loudness of the volume I desire. I do turn the tv and my cable on first, because there is a small speaker pop if I turn the amp on first. Real pleased with both products and the Seller. They ship very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakersI have only had these a short time but they sound great. They replaced other speakers for my surround sound system and they are a very good value. Happy to recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the price!Bought these speakers just so I could listen to my old records again, after having packed them away 15 years ago. I am not an "audiophile", but they sound pretty good to me. Considering buying a second pair.

Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair

O. K. I'll try again, I have a Sony STD-DH800 reciever, I have R,L,C speakers 2 surrounds, and a sub. making a nice 5.1 can I add a pair of Dayton B652 to make a 7.1 or possibly 7.2.

Asked by: gleason45
Yes these speakers would work very well for that application.

Ref: Bobtek126 inquiry regarding 1 inch dowel upgrade. Please explain ?.

Asked by: Piano Man
Sometimes dowel rods are used as cheap but effective bracing inside a speaker cabinet. You simply cut them to length and glue them inside the enclosure, coupling the sides of the enclosure together.

Hi, From the pictures it looks like these come with speaker wire, but it doesn't specifically say that anywhere. So do they come with some wire, and if so, how much? Thanks a lot!

Asked by: end7
Yes these do include two 20 AWG, 9-1/2 foot long speaker wires.

Are this good to replace Logitech Z-2300 satellites

Asked by: betokid
Yes these should work as long as the amplifier for the Logitech system will handle a 6 ohm load.

Would these speakers be a good upgrade to the Dayton sub/sat 5.1 system? I would use them to replace the front right and left speakers running off a Sony 70 watt per channel reciever.

Asked by: out18law18
Yes, these speakers are larger and will deliver better performance than small satellite speakers.

Can I buy a single speaker? I bought a pair recently, without warranty, and one has stopped working. I love the speakers and it was my own fault that the speaker stopped working, so I'm trying to purchase just a single speaker to have the full set again. 

Asked by: mbarber17
Unfortunately these are only sold as pairs.
