They email code deals on many items nearly everyday.
Yeah.

It's hard to tell what these "price bots" are up to.

e.g:

Fry's is selling a pair of Klipsch Synergy B-20 bookshelf speakers for USD ~280, while the Amazon price of the same fluctuates around USD ~175 delivered:

$175 wouldn't be too bad.
I got a pair of Klipsch KB15, which is the same speaker, at Best Buy on close out for $99. That was a good deal.

Dude, I'd reply to your PM but it won't let me. Thanks a lot for the code, it worked great in store. Got the sub for $199 (plus tax). Appreciate it.

Not to get off topic, but:

I noticed that the KB-15's feature a lower (- ~1/3 octave) crossover point, and a higher (+ 1.5 dB) sensitivity rating than those of the B-20's.

Is this an indication of different drivers, or just of a modified crossover?

The Synergy Series is supposed to have an "improved" crossover. I have A/B ed them and couldn't tell any difference.

No problem. Hope you enjoy the sub-12, which is a pretty bad ass sub for $200. If you get on frys.com's mailing list, they have discount codes what seems like every day for certain items.

If I look at the specs, the PSW505 is pretty similar and even exceeds the Klipsch sub-12 in some respects.

Don't mean to start any kind of war or suggest anything. I'm just curious if they're really pretty much equivalent or why people like one over the other. I've got a PSW505 in the Family room and also one in the game room. I built my own in my theater room.

REALLY, just interested given the very similar price and specs.
