Firesprite Smaller Bookshelf speakers

Firesprites are smaller bookshelf speakers suitable for use as surround/rear or stereo speakers, or all round a complete five, seven, or nine speaker home theatre system plus subwoofer in a small, medium or even large rooms.  With one or two of our subwoofers appropriate for your size room and you will have a very dynamic system far superior to the mass produced all-in-one box speaker packages you see in chain stores. The Firesprite is smaller and less powerful than the Woodfox, but has all the clarity and listening satisfaction. Great for intimate rooms as a stereo speaker, but needs a subwoofer when used as a high end satellite in large rooms.

As with all our models, drivers can be matched to the rest of the drivers in your ordered system. All these Firesprites have good bass output for a smaller bookshelf, meaning that the subwoofer does not have to take over above 60 -- 80 Hertz, and can stay well within the omni-directional range of low frequencies -- and therefore not draw attention away from the real source of action in the sound sphere of a multi-speaker movie system, or sound stage of a 2.1 or 2.2 stereo system.
