Pioneer SP-BS22LR 4" Andrew Jones-designed 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair
Anyone familiar with this speaker AND the HSU HB-1 MK2? My questions about performance: 1) How well do these image compared to the HSU's and in what way? 2) How good do they sound comparatively (better/worse/different, pros/cons)?
We do not have anyone familiar with the HSU speaker you mentioned. But by comparing the information I see online about it, I can say that the HSU speaker appears to be higher wattage and higher sensitivity compared to the Pioneer SP-BS22LR. We would not be able to comment on the sound quality, unfortunately. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, email@example.com or 800-338-0531 x1.

Would these be compatible with my amplifier as a 2nd pair of speakers to run in another room? Would run them on their own separate bank. I own a Marantz PM6004 Integrated, Power Output (8 / 4 Ohm RMS): 45 W / 60 W Frequency Response: 10 Hz -
Yes these will work fine with that amplifier.

Is the imaging / performance negatively impacted by positioning them horizontally? I have a 10 inch height restraint in the cabinetry for the AV equipment.
Off axis response will be affected by placing them on their sides but in most cases this is not going to be a huge problem.

What type of connection do these speakers use? Do they directly accept speaker wire?
These use binding posts and will accept standard bare speaker wire.

What do I need to power up these babies?
I want to hook up my laptop to these speakers with a standard jack pin. What kind of amp would I need? I am not sure about the ohm-wattage relationship. I would like to have something with a smaller footprint but I might consider getting a receiver for future expansion. But then again I do not want to set these speakers to fire with a 100wpc output. Something like a small t-amp without a hiss would be nice. Any recommendation/experience?
There are many small amplifier options that will work for these. Our Dayton DTA-1 or the Lepai LP-2020A+ will also work well.

How can I mount these to a wall?
I just picked up a pair of these bookshelf speakers, and they sound phenomenal. I bought them for a second office system, but I now realize they would be best as rear-channels in my HT. Is there any way that they can be mounted to a wall? (Speaker stands will not work in my space.) Any advice appreciated.
You will likely have to drill into the cabinet in order to mount these to the wall. I would recommend the smarter speaker wall brackets below.
