Radiient "borrowed" the design from Kef's uni-Q drivers, and Radiient makes the Insignia Bookself speakers. Ta-Da!:)

Well, I'll shop around for a better deal but that's the first one I found.

Sorry for the Hi-jack Buckeye.:eek:


Back to the speakers.....

I have Allison Krauss playing now and am really warming up to these speakers. I keep having to keep remind myself I only payed $50 for them. I am now positive that the first set I bought were defective.
...don't let it happen again. ;)

It's hard to believe this thread was ressurected again. I totally forgot about those bookshelves. I wonder if BB will put them back on sale for the holidays.

Dumb ? from a newbie

Could these speakers be placed on their sides? I'm interested in using them in a 6.1 ht set-up, but I don't think they will fit standing up in the space my wife is allowing:). I would be buying a set of these for the front and another set for the rear. Would this work? Any (cheap) center channel reccomendations too? This is a great forum and I can't believe how much I have learned in the last couple of hours of reading. Thanks.

The rear of the speakers are wedge shaped, so they won't stand on their own. You'd need to either prop them up with something, or support them with brackets. Some sort of second wedge could work, just keep in mind they are pretty large speakers.

Thanks for the quick response. If I don't wedge them, what would the drawback be? I think I'll go for it and see if I can make them work. What would be a good center channel to work with these since these are not video shielded?

Maybe you can call this outfit and see if they'll sell just a center channel.

For those who are interested, a DIY crossover is now available for the Insignias that improves their sound. See Dennis Murphy's website http://murphyblaster.com/content.php?f=insignia.html where he shows frequency response curves for the stock and modified Insiginias. In Dennis's words, it improves the Insignias' sound from a C or B- to a B+.

He is selling a simple modification kit that includes schematic plans for his crossover, a custom-made printed circuit board for easy mounting, a parts list and instructions.

Anyone still rocking these speakers and perhaps even built the custom crossover?
