I personally would prefer to have installed in ceiling speakers! Oh wait I already have

Bower & Wilkins Signature 7NT



I would have loved these but at the time they were not available Also they are quite pricey!!!

So question for you BS-22 owners who use these as your mains whether it be for music or HT. I currently have the FS-52 towers as my mains in my HT, but may need to switch to the BS-22 bookshelves. The problem is that these will need to be mounted on the wall using BTech 77 wall mounts. I've read in a forum that these should be at least 2 feet away from the back wall to reduce bass boom. I can't place them that far away.

What are people's experiences with this speaker if you mount it or have it near the back of a wall? Would I be missing out on something here? Reduced quality? I will be crossing over everything at about 90hz with my sub. Thanks!

No problem whatsoever
Mine are about 3" off the wall and work just fine

Do you use yours for HT? How do you like them for mains? Do they fill your room adequately? I've read the bookshelf is better than the tower so just trying to get people's opinions.

I used the 22 for my mains for a couple months, didn't have any trouble. Sound the same as the 52 (to me), just the 52 seem louder. No equipment to make that a fact /shrug.

Yeah, I'm guessing being towers they would come across as being louder. If I'm running a subwoofer I'm debating whether I'd be missing out on something if I forgo the towers and went with the bookshelves instead. Again, mostly for HT and will be getting the SVS PB-1000.

Anyone else have any experience using the bookshelves as mains for a HT?

The bookshelves are not better than the FS52s. Trust me, I've had both. However, the BS22s could be adequate for mains as long as they're supported by a quality subwoofer.

Sure you'd probably be missing something in the mid range, but a decent sub will carry the 22 a long way. It's not a terrible speaker.

HT and music
I use them as mains and surrounds in a 7.1 configuration with the MK8 subwoofer

They are great
Sweet sound and fill the room

I LOVE them!

Wait, you think I would miss something in the mid range even if I use a SVS PB-1000 subwoofer? And crossed over at 90hz? I thought this would cover the range.

Time to upgrade that sub so you get bass to match the rest of your setup
