Pioneer Electronics SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Speaker Pair - 12999
RC Willey is proving that quality home audio systems don't have to break the bank with these Pioneer Electronics Bookshelf Speakers.The SP-BS22-LR compact speakers from Pioneer can be used as simple stereo speakers or components in a multi-channel home theater system. With the ability to handle 80 watts, the SP-BS22-LR compact Pioneer speakers deliver wide frequency response and sophisticated sound quality regardless of the source. Whatever your system, the SP-BS22-LR Compact Speakers are ready to step it up with authentic audio reproduction to bring your listening experience to the next level.
These bookshelf speakers from Pioneer Electronics utilize a true curved cabinet design that serves multiple purposes. Not only does the curved design make these speakers more aesthetically pleasing than the traditional boxy design of typical bookshelf speakers, it also enables them to create a better sound production. The stiffer design reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet, resulting in high-performance and exceptional sound quality.
These speakers also feature beautiful and unique speaker grills. They work to protect the speakers but are removable so that you can have your speakers, your way.
The job of the crossover in a speaker is to break the audio signal into low, high, and sometimes mid-range frequencies. It’s an important job and uses circuitry like inductors and capacitors to accomplish it. Much of the competition uses an extremely simple, low-cost crossover made up of a single capacitor and inductor. The Pioneer SP-BS22-LR utilizes a sophisticated 6 component high-quality crossover. The reasoning is simple: because it’s one more way of ensuring a high-quality sound that makes its presence known.
There are many challenges in designing and manufacturing a woofer capable of delivering true bass performance. The SP-BS22-LR features a structured surface added to the 4-inch woofer. By doing so, not only is rigidity improved, so is bass accuracy. Engineers have also vented the pole piece, again improving bass response from the same size woofers in previous models.
To widen the sweet spot of the 1-inch High-Efficiency Soft Dome tweeter, Pioneer engineered a custom wave guide. Increasing tweeter efficiency, together with newly designed crossovers, allows the SP-BS22-LR’s play louder using less power.
70 Years of Audio Firsts
These speakers come with a remarkable pedigree of over 70 years of Pioneer audio heritage and industry firsts. Like every speaker we build, these are engineered to offer incredible design and amazing sound quality. But then that’s exactly what you’d expect from speakers designed by internationally renowned speaker engineer, Andrew Jones. As Pioneer’s Chief Speaker Engineer, Andrew has designed some of the world’s finest loudspeakers, some costing as much as $80,000. Now he has brought his high-end expertise and passion to the creation of this affordable compact speaker. And while the price is considerably lower than some of his other efforts, the expectation and delivery of accurate sound reproduction are the same.
