I've got an old Sony subwoofer from a HTIB, and a Sony AVR that I'd like to get set up in my garage/workshop. The satellites are long gone, so I just want to get a cheap pair of bookshelf speakers so I can listen to music in there with something better than a boombox.


Amazon has the Sony SS-B1000 for around $60/pair. Anyone have experience with these speakers, or have another favorite in this price range (or cheaper)? My basic criterion is "not garbage."

Pioneer BS21's. Newegg has had them new for $49/pr. Right now they are $69/pair new, and $39/pair open box.


These are outstanding speakers, and at that price, you would be hard pressed to better them.


There is a massive owners thread here:

Cool, thanks. No subwoofer upgrade needed, my old Sony will still give me way better bass than any of the cheapo shelf systems I was looking at. The space is acoustically terrible, but it's big enough that I might as well use the perfectly serviceable receiver I already have in storage rather than getting an underpowered all-in-one at twice the price of a pair of basic bookshelf speakers.
