I have a pair of the older B-2 speakers which are pretty much the same, just earlier model. I used mine as my front left and right for a long time and enjoyed them. I have since moved up to tower fronts and use the B-2s as rear surrounds on stands. I really enjoy mine a lot, and at $100, they are a steal. Don't go by the BB stand sound, that is terrible. If you were building a surround sound on a budget, two pairs of these would be a fantastic deal for front and rear speakers, and you would be getting an excellent speaker, especially for the money. No they aren't equal to some 600 a piece tower, but hell, what a deal. I do believe I am going to pick up another pair to use for another spare room stereo I might be putting together.
