What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Onkyo SKF-4800 2-Way Bass Reflex Floor-standing Speakers
  • Weight in total for both is around 55 lbs or 25kg. The weight of the speakers should not be a deterrent as the poundage has to come from somewhere--in this case the casing, which is wood.
  • As with how heavy they are, they will be able to stand on the ground without tilting and being more difficult to tip over.
  • They are heavy, but well worth the effort.
  • Well built - heavy (and tall, up to my belly button!)

  • I didn't think they would be THIS good when I received them because they are a little smaller in size than I thought they would be. To my surprise, these are amazing.
  • It is a great value speaker. I am very pleased with its performance and its quality. Just be aware or the large size.
  • The towers are well made and in fact are surprisingly heavy.
  • These speakers are of a descent size and weight so if space is an issue you may want to go a different route.
  • They are fairly large, but seem to blend in well in our living room making them almost unobtrusive if it weren't for the beautiful music coming from them.

What customers say about "Audio"
Onkyo SKF-4800 2-Way Bass Reflex Floor-standing Speakers
  • Guys... I Love these!!!!!!! You get a pair!!!!!!! Get a powerful receiver and your ears will blow before they will.
  • They perform very crystal clear, the higher frequencies are not too aggressive thanks to their silk domes.
  • The two low and midrange speakers have an opening due to BR performance. But if you want to use it as part of a surround system I would recommend to add a woofer
  • They sound great for movies and music equally well, with good dynamic range and clarity on high and low frequency sounds.
  • These speakers suck!!! I just hooked them up to replace my old Onkyo speakers and they sound like a transistor radio. I went to the web site and read the specs.......low frequency response is 55Hz. My old Onkyos delivered at 40 Hz. For those not familiar with response..
Pioneer SP-FS52 Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker
  • I have the complete set. Love them! Power and clarity at all levels and they look great!
  • Paired these with 2 larger speakers and 2 powered subs. A perfect combo
  • I absolutely love these speakers. The bass has that deep, quality bass that you can only get with a full sized speaker without being at all boomy or over powering (I have these connected to my Onkyo without a subwoofer, which really isn't needed).
  • The rest of the frequency spectrum has a really good, natural sound to it. I can listen to these speakers all night without getting exhausted as I would with cheaper, less naturally sounding speakers.
  • Ok sounding for the price. Would pay more for better sound
  • I compared this speaker and the Onkyo SKF-4800, i found the onkyo speakers to have more details in the highs. mids sound good in both speakers, a bit bright in the onkyo but nothing harsh.

What customers say about "Features"
Onkyo SKF-4800 2-Way Bass Reflex Floor-standing Speakers
  • The speakers are built well, and there are no noticeable defects with the finish, stand or grills. Extremely pleased with price and performance of these speakers.
  • I like that they accept banana plugs, or you can wrap wire the old fashioned way. I opted for the banana plugs. Plug those puppies in and you're ready to rock.
  • The speakers support banana plugs but I just used the bare wire, the holes in the wire terminals are generously big so I think they expected a lot of people to run thicker gauge speaker cables into these.
  • They included little felt furniture stickers to put on the bottom. There are no spikes or anything. The bottom is just flat.
  • Cable included, will take banana plugs though.

  • Towers and center channel look great with grills off
  • I like that you can take the grills off, as I'd rather see the drivers.
  • The cabinet is well made, the terminals of high quality.
  • Speaker grills have partially turned purple, even in a room with blackout curtains and seldom direct sunlight.
  • Veneer is very cheap quality, already peeling in the corners after 9 months of delicate handling.
