Energy CB20 Speakers | Steve Hoffman Music ForumsMarch 15, Energy CB Loudspeakers. I think I began listening to music -- with some awareness of what I was listening to -- when I was 10 or 11, on my first Sony Walkman, and, like a Jesuitical training, this early experience seems to have shaped my audiophile preferences. The challenge faced by every bookshelf speaker is bass reproduction and extension. Energy, which used to be one of a family of brands owned by Audio Products International in Toronto, Canada, is currently owned by the Klipsch Group. The CB is a two-way, magnetically shielded bass-reflex monitor.

I ordered them and I don't know how or why but they sound better to me than all of the speaker brands I listed above. Some of the speakers above cost 4x that much.

Energy's CBs deliver clear highs and thumping lows to make anything you listen to come to life. Whether you use them for a stereo music setup or as front or surround speakers in a home theater system, you'll be impressed by their power and accuracy. They each contain a rigid woofer with a ribbed elliptical surround. This design reduces audible distortion by allowing greater movement of the woofer cone. An aluminum dome tweeter dishes out clear high frequencies that help you pinpoint sounds in the space around you. Energy mounts the woofer and tweeter as close together as possible, which helps the speakers produce even, consistent sound over a wide area. That means everyone on your couch can enjoy the detail and clarity.
