Energy Connoisseur C-Series 5.1
Now there are several benefits to finding such a package. When you have all the same make and model of speakers it makes it much easier to configure as you don`t have to compensate for certain speakers differences. Sometimes you cant. So you know, getting the same type of speakers is also known as Timber Matching and it is an important factor in choosing components for your speaker system.
This speaker system is comprised of a 6-piece set of Energy Take Classic speakers which includes 4 Take satellite speakers, 1 perfectly matched Take center channel speaker and 1 perfectly matched Take powered subwoofer.
The front and rear satellites each contain a 3" poly-titanium woofer and a 3/4" Hyperbolic aluminum-dome tweeter. I have never really been a fan of satellites but these speakers are very small for the sound they create at three pounds each. These are a solid build and they look good, so they will match you shag rug and the moosehead above your fireplace perfectly.
The Center Channel with the same technology (tweets,woofers) is equally pleasing to the eye and will complete the five channels. Now as you'll see Energy boasts about their Patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround woofers that create high efficiency, low distortion. While this sounds like the shit. Every manufacturer has some patented something or another and it doesnt always mean something. In this case, I think that the speakers are an excellent build. Oh ya, full specifications for this product can be found here.

You must critically analyze this by listening to the speakers yourself, with the receiver you're going to purchase to ensure it will do what you want.
Despite my concerns, Energy has been in the audio business for a long time and these are solid speakers. In the end of the day everyone has their personal preference and we all hear differently, some people like more bass while some hate it, you`re ear is the only one that matters when your making a purchase like this.
I`ve seen this set of speakers pricing in total rom $500-$800 so as an affordable home theater option this and a good receiver may be your choice for under $1000.
