Energy Speaker Systems CF-50 Floorstanding Speakers 

DESCRIPTION

Audio for the Connoisseur: Energys CF-50 floorstanding loudspeaker.

While Convergent Source Module technology allows the tweeter and mid-range driver to operate as a single source for enhanced dispersion, Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology dramatically reduces distortion and improves fidelity.

  • Impedance: 4 Ohms min./8 Ohms nominal
  • Tweeter: 1-inch (25.4mm) hyperbolic aluminum-dome
  • Inputs: Dual gold plated 5-way binding posts

Strength:

Bought these used on Craigslist after finally giving up on finding another pair of Energy e:xl-25s to replace the pair I had to abandon in Honolulu during my move back to the mainland. To my ear, they're perhaps a tad recessed in the 1K-ish mids compared to the aforementioned 25s, and I'm not sure if the sound staging is quite a detailed. But there's an unmistakable aural family resemblance that's quite pleasing. For the price paid I'm quite happy.

Hi,
I have owned theese floorstanders for more than a year now,
At first i had them hooked up to a Denon avr 3805 (mid range 7.1 receiver)
i was happy with the mids and highs, but they were lacking bass quite badly!
I then moved my setup to another place in the same room, and there it was!!!
i was blown away at how low theese 5.5's could spit, keeping all the mids and lows of before!
After a month or two, i was curious as to how much theese babies could handle, i then powered them with an AVC A1SE (high end 7.1 receiver).
And WHAM! i keep checking if my sub is on/off!
Beautiful detail in the highs and mids
If i was to complain about one thing, is the highs, they are a tad too squeeky depending on the music.
But for the money, GRAB them! Feed em a powerfull amp, let them break in a while, find a good location for them, and enjoy!

I just bought a pair of these towers along with a set of cf-30 as a replacemet for my c-500 & c-300 and i must say as a avid energy fan i was blown away by how bad these sound. ive owned and loved many sets of energy towers as well as a set of athenas and i guess this is what happens when a company goes to big box retail stores. klipsch group has killed a great name. terrible sound & efficiency. id rather own cerwin vegas
