I just got moved into my new house and got stuffed unpacked for the first time in years and realized that I have an old (1993) Fisher Studio Standard 24 disc changer stereo system and a pair of STM-993 3-way speakers that came with it. the specs on the Fisher speakers are 100 watt max, 2.5in tweeter, 4in midrange, and 8" woofer.

My current speakers are tiny Sony HTIB satellite speakers and I was wondering if replacing a pair of those satellites with the Fishers would be advisable.

I would think that even though they are older the Fishers would sound better however I am not sure if they will serve to drown out the Tiny center.

Also if anyone knows anything more about this stereo and speakers please let me know. I don't have the original manuals that came with it and can't find anything online about it.

Thanks for the help and answers.

Feeling the Purple Power thanks to HD DVD and Blu Ray.

The addition of the fishers will most definatly make the 2 channel performance much better. Though, I would ponder on whether or not the HTIB reciever is up to the task. I mean sure it would make sound, but what about the impeadance of these speakers, or the sensitivity. I would hopw the HTIB has level controls, i wont bet the boat on it. Go ahead try it out, see how it sounds, It most def. wont be a perfect match timber wise, but mabye it wont be too bad.

BTW, how do you like the cone tweeter on those, which im taking it as such because of its large size.

Take a shot and try it. They may sound better (not betting on it) or much worse (the HTIB amp may have EQ built-in for its speakers).
