Wide-Dispersion Super Tweeter

The super tweeter in the SS-CS5 is designed to deliver a high-frequency audio response of up to 50 kHz for high-resolution listening with wide directionality.

Tweeter Design

Each SS-CS5 features a tweeter with high sound pressure, achieved through a variety of weight reduction techniques, including the integration of a powerful magnetic circuit and a light CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) in the voice coil.

Mica-Reinforced Drivers

The SS-CS5 incorporates a 5" woofer in an effort to deliver deep and stable bass reproduction. Utilizing a foamed mica-cellular diaphragm, it is designed to produce powerful sound with fine sonic details.

Bass Reflex Design

The bass reflex duct, positioned at the rear of each speaker, is designed to suppress unwanted noise and improve low-frequency sound reproduction.

Additional Features

  • Air-core inductors in the tweeters, a silicon steel plate in the woofer, and high quality film condensers
  • Wood speaker design with removable speaker grille
  • Tapered faceplate edges
  • Screw type speaker terminals

What hasn’t already been said about these speakers on the internet? Great sound and great value. I agree wholeheartedly as long as you understand the design limitations at the price point.

Great For The Price

I paid less than $100 for the pair. I've had them for a month paired with a Sony subwoofer and Sony receiver. Using them as 2.1 system with tv and blue ray/cd player connected. Also streaming music via Spotify. I've had a number of receiver/speaker combinations over the years, some much expensive, and these speakers sound pretty good.

Excellent Speakers

I needed another set of speakers to go in my workshop. My main stereo system is in the adjoining man cave, but I needed a little something to have sound in the workshop. These are just what I needed. I was concerned since the Sony's were 6 ohm and my larger KLH speakers were 8 ohm. After hooking them up, I found no difference in the sound levels at a prescribed volume setting. I was told that there might be a difference and I would have to adjust the volume on one set of speakers, but this wasn't the case. They obviously don't have the full sound of the 10-inch woofer KLH's, but they are very satisfactory for sound in my workshop. A great buy as B&H had them on sale for about half price. Plus, all the reviews I read had them rated at a 4 or 5, with the majority being a 5. There were no 1's, 2's, or 3s. Great speakers.

Awesome

For the size, these speakers have great sound. I needed to replace my big bulky speakers with these to take up less room. They work very well for my purpose.

Will these speakers pair nicely with my NuForce DDA-120 that has a power output of 50 / 75 Watts at 4 & 8ohm. Thanks.

They should work quite well with the NuForce DDA-120 in a small to medium sized space under 20' x 20' with a 10' ceiling.

question

I want to pair these speakers with my NuForce DDA-120 integrated amp which can output 50 Watts / 75 Watts at 4ohm and 8ohm. Will they becwork correctly?
Asked by: Anonymous
The speakers are very sensitive and the wattage will be satisfactory. However, the impedance is a problem, and there is no agreed upon rule. We cannot advise you to use 6 ohm speakers with an amp that only operates on 4 or 8 ohms.

How do I make these work with an Audio-Technica turntable?
Asked by: L Nicole
Hi L Nicole, thank you for your inquiry. Are you referring to a turntable? If yes, these speakers can be directly connected to your Audio technica turntable if it has a built-in preamp. If it doesn't have an built-on pre amp, please connect the speakers to the speaker output terminals of an amplifier using the speaker cords (not supplied) then connect the amplifier to your turntable. For further assistance, please contact our product support team through this link: https://us.esupport.sony.com/support/s/service?language=en_US. Hope this helps! -Sam
