      ordered the CR3000 speakers because I already had my older front speakers and when I upgraded my receiver to a 6.1 sony, I felt I could use more speakers. Good call because I didnt know what i was missing. anyways, all over the web it says that the rear channels come with long speakers. they actually aren't too long. 20 feet max. so if you want to run your wires along the wall to hide them, you are out of luck. plus the wires these came with are lower gauge skinny wires. I went over to[...]and picked up a 75 foot roll of 18 gauge clear speaker wire. and with a wire slicer, went to work. the good part is that the wires aren't built into the speakers at either end (like computer cables) instead, they are detachable. but the quality of the speakers is adequate. there are better on speakers out there but IMO, its the receiver that makes most of the difference. But end of the day no regrets on the speakers. they do their job and do it well. just invest 7-8 bucks on a roll of wire from anywhere and you will be set. plus these ones are light weight and can be hung off hooks/nails on the walls if you desire

      These sound great for the price, just as long as you don't push them very hard. Rears start to distort during louder scenes at about 60% max volume, which isn't that loud with the home theater set-up I have them connected to. Center channel is quite adequate for a basic system, and has yet to distort.

      Great if you don't need a very loud system, especially a dorm room, kids room or apartment.

      its three speakers

      By J Dub

      Comments about Sony SS-CR3000 Home Theater Speaker System:

      I expected more (because of the reviews I read here and other retail websites), but tempered that expectation with the reality this is a center and two surround speakers for around a hundred bucks. I had a Sony center and two surrounds from an economy set-up I bought 6-7 years ago for two hundred bucks and never really liked the way the center sounded like it was being sucked back through the wall behind them into a tin can. What do you expect for that price point. The only reason I bought the SS-CR3000 was to upgrade and eliminate that seeming vortex of muddled and tinny sound, but I found that the TV provided better highs and clearer vocals than these speakers. Ive tried every Dolby and movie setting on my Sony amplifier to compensate for the lacking sound, nut to no avail. If you don't have anything, these are better than nothing, but no where near the 'amazing' sound other reviewers have espoused. Maybe their amplifier
      eceiver is better than mine and costs a lot more, but then, why buy this set if you're gonna spend that kinda dough on good sound in the first place?

      Comments about Sony SS-CR3000 Home Theater Speaker System:

      I ordered these speakers to complete my 7.1 surround sound system, using the small speakers as high fronts. Sony isn't known for audiophile speaker quality, but its my opinion they are vastly underrated in their sound quality. They arrived a day early from B&H and were in great condition, good packaging. The speakers are in a wooden box, not plastic like a HTiB speaker system. Excellent build quality. The sound is incredibly crisp and warm. While not ideal for a 3.1 set up, these things fit the bill perfectly. Best price on the Internet is right here from B&H, even beating out [*]. Ships with thin speaker wire that is only suitable until you get a better gauge. I recommend 14 gauge wire. All in all, great speakers, incredible price.

                  Comments about Sony SS-CR3000 Home Theater Speaker System:

                  With my other Sony SS-B3000 speakers, it works great. I only wish I could have purchased the SS-CR3000 Center Channel Speaker by itself as that was all I really needed to complete my TV stereo sound system. Before I found this speaker system, I looked, for a long time, for a compatible center channel speaker to go with my current speakers which, by the way, are great speakers by themselves and I didn't want to replace them. This is the only center channel speaker I found to be completely compatible with them.As too B&H, I have purchased from them before and have found them to be a quality company to do business with.

                          I have these speakers paired with a Sony STR-DH510 Home Theater Receiver. The sound quality is great. They are a relatively small speaker for being able to handle 100 watts continuously. Good construction and quality at a low price. There is a screw or nail bracket on the back for easy installation to the wall.

                          I replaced my original HTIB center and rear speakers with this kit. My original speakers were even smaller. This setup added volume and clarity to my center and rears. You really cant beat them at this price.

                                  Combine these speakers with my new Sony A/v Tuner, and Wow, works great, after I figured out my blunder on connecting the Speakers in the right combination. I build this piece by piece, but you'd never know it now. Thank you B&H

                                    upgraded my SONY home theater system... 7.1 AV receiver (110watts/channel) dtsHD-MA & DDtrueHD... paired w/ new F6000 tower speakers... i use the smaller 2 satellite speakers as the surround back L&R's w/ SONY bookshelf speakers as the surrounds & the towers n front... the center is not only the perfect size to place on top of my 51' WEGA but it is so powerful for its size that the auto cal. on the receiver actually set the center to -1db... so it can even hold its own with the 150watt tower speakers... the dialog from DVDs, blue-rays, & PS3 games comes thru loud & clear... has a nice mid-range sound for a "small" center... only con i can think of is the lack of removable grills... but unless you MUST display the cones of these speakers I highly recommend this package... great price,[...] thank you B&H !!!

                                    The size is great too. Fits right in my stereo cabinet.
