I was reading on the Pioneer Genius thread(here in the AVS forum) and a guy had taken two of the Pioneer FS51 towers and stacked them tweeter to tweeter. Curiosity sat in so I had to try it.
I left my Emp E5ti on the right side and stacked my Pioneer's on the left. I will have to admit that this configuration brought the Pioneer's to life. They had alot more definition and sounded smooth. With just one of the FS51 they sound shallow to me. The only way I can explain it is like it is in a tunnel. With both stacked the highs and midrange are more forward and actually sound better than my E5ti.
I do not have the E55ti's yet so I can not compare them to the Pioneer's stacked. This has brought me to a crossroad. I can wait for the Emp's to have another sale,that they have mentioned, or buy two more of the Pioneer's. They are on sale right now for a PAIR only $119 at Newegg. That would leave me enough to go ahead and order my SVS sub. Has any one else done a comparision between these speakers?
Anyone have any thoughts on what you would do? I already have the center that matches the FS51's so all I would need are the two towers.
