Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers in a small packageWe purchased these speakers to go with the turntable we purchased for our son for Christmas. We paired it with the Dayton Audio DTA-120 Class T Mini Amplifier, and it has proven to be a great combination. Good low and high frequency response with a decent mid-range. Definitely a good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speakers - Amazing PriceI purchased 4 pairs (8 speakers) to use as a 7.1 system in my small home theater room (a converted bedroom.) Matched with a 12" Dayton sub, these speakers are mind-blowingly awesome. Whether watching explosion-heavy Superhero films or dialogue-driven period dramas, these speakers are so crisp and nuanced that your ears will be begging for more. I love audio and love clean sound - and these Dayton Audio speakers are a dream to enjoy. Oh, and did I mention MUSIC? These speakers shine when listening to big sound - be it the Stones, Hendrix, or whatever else you throw at them. By far this is money well spent.

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

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.
