Yes, they are available but not on sale at the moment. They will pop up on Woot.com occasionally.

I would need to place them all horizontally.

Do you think that would work?

Yes, they should work just fine. Are you putting them in shelves? If so, just make sure the front baffle of the speaker is just in front of the face of the shelf (so not recessed into a shelf).

That's exactly what I was planning to do,and at that price it's almost a no brainer,as well as a 10 yr. warranty as woot is a authorized dealer of pinnacle.

I think you're good to go then. Post your experience with them. Woot is actually a division of Amazon. I've ordered a lot of stuff from them (including some Pinnacle speakers and subs), they're pretty safe.

Pinnacle is on sale again at woot. $499 for the BD2500's

http://electronics.woot.com/plus/you...1?ref=cnt_wp_4

Anyone have any idea on when a new line is expected or if Pinnacle is finally going under?

I never heard of them going under. They just don't have a lot of outlets for selling, mostly via internet through a few vendors. Here is the latest news on them (2-5-2015):

When purchased through sales via Woot, the quality is incredible for the price (the OEM price is not great though, too much competition if sold at those prices).

I think the oem prices are just inflated. I doubt anyone would buy them at that price. However for the woot prices I think they are a no brainer.

Specs on this speakers look phenomenal for the Price. But do they really deliver?

I think that the larger BD 750's and 2500's. A little on the HT side of things but I enjoy mine very much.

Sorry for the late reply. They would be on a stand. Not enclosed in any way.

They are pretty close to their specified specs, but you still need to use a sub (the best position for mains is never the best place for bass response, so subs really are needed even with 'full range' speakers). Also, subs are really designed well for the lower bass regions so it's better to take the load off of the mains.
