Got these Insignia speakers at the thrift store for cheap yesterday after seeing some decent reviews online. I wanted some low profile surrounds in my stereo room for a SACD/DVD-A to be setup soon. Played some jazz music and played a bit of the movie Twister and they sound pretty **** decent. Added some pads to angle the speakers tweeter closer to my ear. Just a tip. I know nothing exciting, but these are tough times.

Living room the Energy center has about 10 felt pad adhesive stuck together underneath to get them to my ears. You can get them at your local Dollar Tree.
Here the Insignia are bare. For cheap speaker they got a cool look. I think the covers are going in the closet. :p As the boredom seeks in. Hello anybody here??? 🥃

I put these up sometime earlier this year in my small living room and had never posted them. Reason is because I wanted to see if I hear a difference and I do. They are two sided technics speakers. The gold trim on the woofer looks great in person. I posted some pics earlier this year on a speaker thread. I was watching Haunted Hill series on Netflix and boy it sounded so **** real that I jumped. Hope you Like, comment and subscribe. :p

Heya Jim lookey here.👏 thrift store find.
Always heard these Energy subs were pretty good, so for $10(350.00 new) why not. This thing is well built with a nice hard rubber on the driver and well made speaker connections are a plus. I will probably put it with my Jamo 8 inch in my small living room. The Jamo by itself is rocking my couch I can’t imagine two. Specs say it goes down to 30ish hz.

Cleaned her up and she looks like new.

Testing 1 2 testing. This 8 inch is pretty **** tight and not boomy. Jazz and also some bass tests sounds great. Test with movies later on. I’m happy so far. Whoa ten buckaroos. I’m lucky.

There was indeed a time when the Energy subs were considered a good value, but for a mere $10 you easily eclipsed the definition of the words "good value". Excellent score!

Thanks man. Look at this local distraction. Man remember I won it? Then sandy sank it. Funds are low these day, so sadly gotta pass.

You should consider posting a picture with all your gear. By now the house must look like a Best Buy showroom. 😋

Whoa just looked it up! 18 inches of bumpin’. Looking forward to your review.
Well, you asked what my subwoofer was not what the current review unit is. ;) I won't be reviewing the RS1 but I did do an informal write up that you can find at this link.

Wow Jim! Good for you. Iirc your room is like 2400cuft? Hoot dang!!!
It gets even better, my room is just under 1,800ft^3. :)

I don't know if 13x17x8 could be consider medium let alone large. Remember, ft^3 is cubic feet not square feet. ;)

I have about half a dozen sets of speakers, mostly so I can have something to match any subwoofer I might be evaluating. I rotate them around but frequently it's the XTZ M6.

Wow! It does get better! I’d say you should add exactly one more to help keep that response even. R. O. F. L.
