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 Pioneer builds, these are engineered to offer incredible design and amazing sound quality. Pioneer has brought their high-end expertise and passion to the creation of this affordable bookshelf speaker.
Thinking Out Of the Box
Typically you'll find most bookshelf speakers not only come in a box, they are a box. And while that might be better for production costs, it isn't better for sound reproduction. The SP-BS22-LR speakers utilize a true curved cabinet design. So besides the aesthetics being considerably more pleasing, this stiffer design reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet, resulting in high-performance and exceptional sound quality.
As you look at them, you'll also notice the unique speaker grills. They're beautiful and elegant in their own right, but not for their own sake. They protect the speakers, but are also removable if you prefer to see the drivers themselves.
The Inside Story
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 it uses circuitry like inductors and capacitors to accomplish it. Most speakers use an extremely simple, low-cost crossover made up of a single capacitor and inductor. The Pioneer SP-BS22-LR utilizes a sophisticated 6-element, high-quality crossover. The reasoning is simple: because it's one more way of ensuring high quality sound that makes its presence known.
In the SP-BS22-LR, Pioneer has added a structured surface to the 4-inch woofer. By doing so, not only is rigidity improved, so is bass accuracy. Engineers have also vented the pole piece, 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 has engineered a custom wave guide. Increasing tweeter efficiency, together with newly designed crossovers, allows the SP-BS22-LR's play louder using less power.
Highly acclaimed and award winning series of speakers designed by world-renowned speaker engineer Andrew Jones. The SP-BS22-LR bookshelf speakers were designed to offer extraordinary performance and remarkable sound quality for music and home theater at an affordable price.
Top customer reviews
The sound coming out of it is very fulfilling. I mainly listen to classical music and I can appreciate nuanced instrumentation and sound textures. I did not choose reference monitors because of their sweet-spot effect. These speakers can be used to fill a room with sound. I was considering Klipsch promedia 2.1 as an alternative but they were 50$ more than what I spent for these.
The con is not really con that the bass is not too loud. These speakers produce adequate bass for my listening. But adding a sub would always make a difference to any system. So I am adding a sub from the same line of the speakers.
I highly recommend these speakers.
Point I'm taking a long time to get to, just wanted to inform those who may not of known as I did is that with the recent additional amp the Pioneer's finally had the amount of power they needed. Had 1 of them sitting on top of a cabinet at ear level as I was rearranging. As I walked by the sound coming from my left was new. It was so powerful with exceptional quality being displayed. I stopped, staring at 1 Pioneer. Thinking how does that small woofer create such nice bass, how is this quality possible at this cost? I still don't know. There are many out there who build there own speakers. Claiming they can make any speaker on the market for half the cost at minimum. The only exception they admit of not being able to do for even the full price is theset speakers & the tower/Floorstanding of this same Pioneer Andrew Jones line.
I now have 4 pairs, and will be giving many to family and friends for Christmas
