Compact speakers: Big, amazing sound

With its .75-inch hyperbolic aluminum dome tweeter and 4.5-inch woofer, the CB-5 makes a big impact for a mid-sized bookcase speaker delivering amazing deep bass and clear, accurate highs.

Sound + Style

These versatile speakers are ideal for a compact music system or as part of a home theater or gaming system. The black ash finish with high gloss black baffle adds a cool touch that makes them an even bigger value.

Rear-Firing Port

Placed on the wall, it provides powerful bass reproduction because the rear-firing port uses the wall as an acoustic amplifier to increase response. This means that the speakers, despite their compact size, are capable of outperforming larger speakers.

Good bass, clear midrange and crisp highs.

I couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend these; they are some of the best sounding speakers I have ever heard.

Very surprised at the quality of sound that comes out of such a small box.

Great speakers - I heard this model at a big-box home electronics store and was impressed. They stuck in my mind and when I saw them on Amazon - at a far better price - I ordered them immediately. They have replaced the original speakers that came with a bookshelf stereo. Same settings, same location, and the improvement in sound is incredible. Good bass, clear midrange and crisp highs. No muffled sounds or tinniness, good solid build quality. Definitely recommended.

I poured through many different speaker types before settling on these. I tried polks (t15 and tsi100), klipsch icons, Definitive Tech 800 and many others, before settling on these. I loved the definitives the most, but for my situation, the energy's were for me. I have a medium to small size viewing room in an apartment building, so I was looking to build a surround system with smaller satellites and no subwoofer. I was beginning to lose hope when I ran into the CB-5. Awesome speaker with great low end for the price. No, it won't get as low as a sub, but this has great bass for its size and you can forgo wiring a subwoofer. The rest of the range (trebles and mids) are great too. People looked at me in horror at suggesting not having a sub, but for those of us with size/sound limitations, a sub isn't ideal. When I buy my own place I'll look into a subwoofer and these will become my rear surrounds. For now, they work great as left and right mains. Remember, when looking for audio equipment, the search is have the fun. Enjoy your search folks!

This is a very solid bookshelf/surround speaker whose sound belies it's size. Bass is warm and musical, and as such works well with or without a subwoofer. Highs are accurate and extended without being bright, which is sometimes be a concern with an aluminum dome tweeter.

Basically these speakers work as advertised: they are a good choice for speakers in a small room (say, a college dorm) or as surround speakers in a system that uses other speakers in Take's Connoisseur line.

First and foremost, I'd like to point out that in no way, shape, or form, am I an audiophile. I asked a coworker of mine, who is a self proclaimed audiophile, and he recommended these speakers to start with. They were in my price range, and I was told the quality is excellent for the price.

I have to say that I am very pleased with these speakers! This was my first step in getting better sound out of my TV, BluRay player, and Playstation 3 (along with a receiver; Sony STR-DH810) and so far it's been worth the purchase. I've only had the speakers for about one month now, but I have no complaints. They are medium range speakers, which (I think) means they can provide a good amount of bass without a sub woofer (I don't have one yet). While in general I like more bass than what I can currently get, the Energy CB-5 speakers provide plenty of bass themselves. TV shows, movies, and video games alike all have great sound to them.

I am only using them as front speakers at the moment, and with that in mind I would absolutely recommend these speakers. I have no doubt that they will continue to work well as I build towards surround sound over time.

I purchased these thinking I would use them in the basement to replace some old Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble speakers. After breaking them in for a week or so I decided they sounded so good that I replaced the front left and right speakers in the garage surround system...I spend more time in the garage than in the basement anyway. Even my wife, who readily admits she is tone deaf, appreciates the improvement. I'm normally not a fan of "ported" or bass reflex style speaker but these little gems altered my predudices. They sound so nice that if I were to find them again at the price I paid I would order multiple more pairs. The high gloss finish looks great as well. They mount perfect using standard Omnimount style brackets and do accept banana plug terminal connections.

Prior to purchasing these speakers, my home theater consisted of the Energy Take 5 Classic Pack paired with a Polk PSW505 subwoofer. I bought the Energy CB-5 bookshelf speakers to replace the smaller front speakers from the Energy Take 5 Classic Pack, so I could re-use the smaller speakers as rear / surround speakers. I couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend these; they are some of the best sounding speakers I have ever heard. The sound reproduction that comes from these speakers is simply astounding

Energy CB-5 is one of the best bookshelf speakers in my opinion. The sound is clear and loud without distortion at high and low output level. It sounded lack of highs at first but i was able to control that from my receiver. This speakers absolutely rock considering their low price as well. I love these speakers and I strongly recommend this.

I bought these for use in my garage but they have me looking into the Energy lineup for Home Theater use as well. I have a set of Acoustic Research AR-1s as my main speakers. They are a large tower with a very full sound. I put the Energy's on top of them and hooked them up to my receiver to give them a listen. I was expecting a much "Smaller" sound from them. To my surprise they sound like a decent tower speaker. Now they lows won't knock your socks off by any means but if I had done a blind audition I would have expected to see a much larger speaker behind the curtains. High's are great, very clear without being harsh, which is what I always worry about in a metal dome tweeter. Many of them sound great but after a couple hours they start to hurt my ears. Not physical pain but I just can't listen to them any longer comfortably. I have not experienced this with the Energy's I have listened to them for several hours straight while working in the Garage and I like them more every time I use them. I see from the branding all over the box they are owned by Klipsh now. Hopefully they will realize Energy has a good thing going and won't tamper with the product line too much!
