The SP-BS22-LR Andrew Jones Designed Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair) from Pioneer was designed for both professional and entertainment enthusiasts with the capability to deliver a full, clear, and tight sound response for applications where space is limited. Built with a 4" (10.2 cm) structured surface woofer, 1" (2.5 cm) soft-dome tweeter, and 80W of peak power, this speaker is designed for home theater, whole house audio systems, and anywhere quality sound projection is required.

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.

Lastly, the speaker grills are removable if you prefer to see the drivers themselves.

Woofer
In the SP-BS22-LR, an added structured surface to the 4" (10.2 cm) woofer, not only is rigidity improved, so is its bass accuracy. Engineers have also vented the pole piece, again improving bass response from the same size woofers in previous models
Tweeter
To widen the sweet spot of the 1" (2.5 cm) 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
Crossover
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. The Pioneer SP-BS22-LR utilizes a sophisticated six component high quality crossover, which provides one more way of insuring high quality sound that makes its presence known
Speaker Aesthetics
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 speaker grills. They protect the speakers, but are also removable if you prefer to see the drivers themselves

        Comments about Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Andrew Jones Designed Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair):

        I didn't want expensive audiophile speakers, just some better than LG HDTV movie sound quality, and good enough sound for some music play, mostly jazz and classical, and some oldies rock. The Pioneer SP-BS22-LR speakers fit the bill and perform well per online reviews I consulted before buying. The only Con I find is difficulty to mount to speaker stands. I ended up using velcro tape, which probably makes the audiophiles cringe, but keeps the speakers from being damage from a 30" fall off Sanus NF30b stands.

        Comments about Pioneer SP-BS22-LR Andrew Jones Designed Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair):

        We got a turntable and hooked it up to an old receiver, but needed a pair of speakers. We live in an apartment and didn't have much speace. When reading online, these seemed to have the good reviews and I would have to agree with them. For an apartment, these speaksers are more than adequate. I do think there'e room for improvement at the low end - maybe a tighter bass sound would be nice. Also, they cut off at 50Hz, which is okay, but it would be nicce to have some lower end between 20Hz-50hz. Is it noticeable, not really, but it would be 'nice to have'

          These speakers are used as "rear surrond speakers" for my purposes.The quality for the price is excellent.Some say you would have to pay 2 to 3 times the price for a speakers equal to these.Some reviews i've read say, there to large or there not very attractive.I bought them for there ability to produce quality sound,whether for home theater or a stereo system.
