Pretty much parrots press release, but says initial price was “$225 each”:

same model, $129.99 in white:

that video cover is showing a thumbtack, and it’s very easy to hear.

either way, are these comparable to say…bookshelf type speakers or am i looking to install a sub onto my wall? that seems painful.

either way, lovin the minimalistic chic here. i’m pretty much for all things minimal. except you know, on people. then it depends.

16.5 x 7 x 4-inches (H x W x D).
6.75 pounds.

I’m not sure if you are trying to ask if these are comparable to the size of subwoofers (which would be difficult to hang on a wall), or if you are trying to ask if you would need to buy a sub and hang it on a wall since these are wall mountable.

I would consider these to be large size bookshelf speakers that are not drastically heavy. Not too hard to hang on a wall (maybe the proper hardware is included which would make it very easy to do).

As far as needing a subwoofer, if you want proper bass, a proper sub would definitely be needed, but not necessarily hanging on a wall.

They look like knock-offs of the Klipsch Quintet III’s that I have.

I wish there was a single review I could read from actual customers. I can’t seem to find any!

Elan speakers are great sounding. I am a dealer and have heard this similar speaker from Niles audio, they are owned by the same company now.
I don’t think you are going to find a speaker at this price range that are going to sound better.


#9

how are they compared to Definitive Technology? I have a Pro Cinema 600 and love them. Do these compare at all?


#10

No- it’s ok, a dealer said these plastic speakers nobody ever heard of are awesome. Just buy them.
Looks like a terrible deal to me.
