The smaller, the better. High style and immense sound come together in a remarkably compact 5.0 speaker package. The RC-Micro 5 Pack consists of four matching high-gloss speakers for front and surround sound channels and a center channel for highly accurate dialogue. This system delivers lifelike performance from your favorite games and movies, with their screaming aluminum cone tweeters to the bottom end provided by the woofers, which features a Ribbed Elliptical surround for great bass extension. Standing just 4.7 inches high and weighing slightly over a pound, each speaker - as well as its center channel - features Energy’s proprietary Convergent Source Module. Keyhole slots and threaded inserts let you choose how and where to place your speakers. And, just in case anyone does spot these tiny sound giants, each component features sonically inert MDF cabinets with a high-gloss black lacquer finish, so their appearance is every bit as impressive as their audio output. Proving, once again, that good things come in little packages.

So, if you have any old sub-woofer floating around and think that it will work just fine with the MICRO's, you may be disappointed. On the other hand, the ENERGY MICRO's are genuinely excellent for what they are- beautifully made and VERY TINY (2.5in "woofer") drivers. High frequencies are not a problem. Thanks to an exotic mini-micro tweeter, the MICRO's probably reproduce sounds that only a dog can hear. Maybe even a bat! Our humble human ears however, need a little more rounded frequency response to perceive reproduced sound as "real". The problem here is not the MICRO speakers--it's a matter of physics. MICRO's simply cannot move enough air to compete with physically larger boxes. Frequency response aside, volume can become an issue if you like your music LOUD. At best, they can sound a little strained when the volume goes up enough to wake the baby. At worst, it is very possible to damage the voice coils--and ENERGY is careful to point out that their warrenty does NOT cover burnt out or fried drivers.
Now for the good news. Stereo/Surround performance is remarkably omni-directional without compromising imaging. This means that the MICRO's fill their listening space while avoiding a limited "sweet spot". In a small listening area that does not require a lot of loudness, the MICRO's- and don't forget the required sub-woofer- are remarkably musical and capable of providing a surround sound stage that is truly cinematic.
As professional "computer speakers", the MICRO's are astonishing! In a small apartment or room, MICRO's will do the job elegantly. They are beautifully finished and can be mounted just about anywhere. As stated earlier, its really a matter of expectations. Don't expect a MICRO setup to replace your audiophile floor standing monitors. On the other hand, sometimes "small really is better". In the right room, these beautifully made devices from ENERGY (a member of The Klipsh Group) will fill the entire room with high quality sound. If decor is a consideration, these piano-finished little gems can be downright sexy. And that's exactly what you want in an intimate, stay-at-home movie night with the right partner.
The sound is clearly better than my former cheap HTS set, so it was a good step up.
The wall mount design by energy is severely flawed. I have good universal brackets (videosecu) and it is as if energy went out of their way to design a speaker that takes a small miracle to get hung well..yes it has a clear keyhole, but really tight and shallow. They have this cube that can be removed to apply a screw on but it is buried so deep that the extension pins supplied just end up unusable. Other's mileage may vary here if you have radically different brackets.
