The Energy Take Classic 5 Pack Home Entertainment Speaker System is a no-compromise collection of high-tech components that offer complete and uncompromising fidelity at an affordable price. Made up of four Take satellite speakers and a Take center channel speaker, each high-gloss black speaker component in this system is masterfully integrated with each other creating a killer sound that is much bigger than it looks and that seamlessly meshes with any flat panel HDTV system.
Take Classic 5 Pack proves that convenience doesn't have to mean compromise. Sure, you can shop for individual home theater components-but you won't get better performance, or better looks. Integrating the best technologies Energy has to offer, the Take Classic can fill your room with hair-rising effects and theater-like sound: hyperbolic aluminum dome tweeters for screaming highs and Convergent Source Modules for clear, crisp dialogue and music. In addition, integrated keyhole wall-mounts, threaded inserts and rubber bumpers let you choose how and where to place your speakers.
Energy has been a leader in audio research and development as well as in the engineering and manufacturing of speakers since 1973. With this pedigree Take Classic components were developed with Energy's core principles in mind. These include:
Flat On-Axis Frequency Response with Wide Bandwidth - Speakers should reproduce the entire audio range in a uniform manner. By ensuring that no one frequency dominates any other, Energy ensures that every note is the way it was intended to be - and the sound as natural as possible.
Wide and Constant Dispersion - Sound at all frequencies radiating from the speaker should be in an even pattern, in all directions throughout the room.
Low Distortion and Resonance - Speaker system is distortion-or resonance-free, but Energy has achieved a significantly lower distortion level, a clearly audible improvement.
The Take Classic 5 Pack home theater system also offers terrific performance and great features:
Take Classic raises the bar for 5.0 speaker system performance. The Convergent Source Module (CSM), with its 3-inch poly-titanium woofer and .75-inch hyperbolic aluminum-dome tweeter, focuses sound for clearer dialogue and stirring music. The CSM gives soundtracks a dynamic frequency range and a huge soundstage, for smooth, realistic sound from each satellite speaker and the center channel. Music and movie lovers rejoice. Take Classic 5 Pack puts the passion back into your favorite films.
Exclusive Energy Brand Technologies
Convergent Source Module
The Convergent Source Module, or CSM, provides wide dispersion, low distortion and amazing midrange performance. The speaker's midrange and tweeter are positioned in close proximity to one another and act as a single source, thereby increasing overall dispersion and reducing any lobing effect. The chambering of the mid and tweeter lowers the driver's resonance, reducing distortion.
Ribbed Elliptical Surround Technology
Energy's patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology (U.S. patent #6,725,967, Canadian patent #2,407,123) increases excursion, eliminates distortion and raises efficiency on woofers and subwoofers. The Elliptical Surround encompasses the cone, allowing it to move identically in both directions, resulting in near zero distortion. And while conventional designs are often plagued with surround dimpling, which causes them to radiate in and out of phase and distort at all listening levels, Energy's designs aren't influenced by dimpling at all, instead proprietary Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology allows for a larger cone surface, resulting in greater efficiency. This design also lets the cone achieve greater peak to peak movement, thus allowing it to travel more than double the distance of the competition. These attributes enable Energy woofers and subwoofers to move incredible amounts of air, ultimately allowing them to play lower frequencies with greater bass extension and fidelity.
What's in the Box

Maximum Performance Tips:
The center channel speaker needs to be centrally located so that the dialogue appears to be coming from the center of the screen. It needs to be above or below the monitor, as closely to it as possible. If you're using a rear projection television, the most likely option is to place it above the screen. If you have a front projection system, you have choices-stand mounting, or placement on furniture, for example. It is important, though, to place the speaker so that its front edge is even with the edge of the shelf or stand supporting it. Unwanted diffraction occurs when the center channel is too far back into a cabinet or other surface with edges that could impede sound dispersion.
For left or right front channels, the distance between the speakers should be 6-8 feet at minimum for the best stereo imaging. The optimum room shape is rectangular, with the speakers along one of the shorter walls, facing the opposite side. If possible, do not place speakers against a wall or at rear of a bookshelf; corner placement is usually the worst option. Try to keep the speakers-especially rear vented models-at least two feet from the surface behind it, unless you use a vent plug. For best results mounting on a rear wall, position the speakers so they flank the main listening area and point toward the front of the room. They should be raised to a height of approximately six feet and should ideally have a space of six feet between them.
Compact system with quality sound. No bass to speak of, so you'll need to add a subwoofer to round out this speaker set. I prefer wired speakers but its.Published 5 months ago by Michael D. Acheson
These A/V speakers are the best design and sound quality I could ask for. I would buy them again and who knows? - they might outlive me! Read morePublished 8 months ago by John B. Phillips

For the money, can't touch the sound quality. Clean mids and crisp, undistorted sound field even at high volume. Awesome.Published 14 months ago by Mark Lindsay
Honestly, a truly great speaker system. Like others, I questioned if these were as good as advertised and I think they are even better. Read morePublished 15 months ago by zimmy
Should have bought a Bose system. These are not as good as I had hoped they would be, even though I read many great reviews on these.Published 15 months ago by William F. Lawson
I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination and I also will say that I can't give 100% credit to the Take Classics for the great sound as the Denon... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Maximus12105
