Speakers rely on powerful magnets to reproduce the sound, and sometimes those speaker magnets can potentially interfere with or damage other A/V components when placed too near to these devices. All of the speakers in the NS-SP1800 system have been magnetically shielded, preventing damage and helping to ensure optimal performance as well as allowing for versatile placement.

I’m powering it using an onkyo tx rz 610 AV receiver. Idk if it’s the speakers be lower impedance or 6 ohm, but I have to turns the volume up a lot more to get the speakers singing than I did using the same receiver power my klipsch dual 8″ tower speakers in the living room. With these speakers, for great movie sound I’m running on volume setting 70, where as with the living room setup I seldom went over 60.
Have no idea if speaker wire makes a difference in this volume discrepancy, I’m using the included speaker wire with these speakers, appears to be 18awg, I’d guess about 100′, I had plenty to route the wire for surround under the base board around the room for the rear speakers and still have enough for the front 3. Even used mediabridge banana plugs on receiver end. Used a mediabridge sub woofer cable instead on included cable, mainly because I had an extra. Sub woofer just uses a single rca connector.
I’d be happy with these in my living room for movies, they sound that good. Music is OK, but if you are like me and play music in your living room mostly, you’d probably want something more filling. Would recommend these to anyone wanting a good sound 5.1 surround system, and you can’t beat the price.
I had previously tried a Samsung 3.1 sound bar with sub, and while the sound was fine for the bedroom, this absolutely blows the sound bar away in sound, and surround effects.

These speakers are well suited to my AV Receiver (Dolby 5.1, 7.1), which has 100 Watts/Chanel output for Dolby 5.1 (L, C, R, SL, SR) and a sub-woofer line level output. With my Receiver, these more than fill the 30’x20′ living room with more sound than is needed. The addition of this speaker system to my system using Dolby 5.1 logic has made watching movies much more enjoyable. Dialog is clearer, deep base thunders though the room from the powered sub-woofer and music sounds clearer than many actual theaters I’ve heard (and I’ve seen and heard a lot of them as a projectionist). Of course all sorts of listening material is noticeably better. TV audio, Radio stations, and music all benefit.
For me, setup was easy and everything I needed was in the box. I just replaced my old set of speakers with this set, hooked up the sub-woofer with the supplied audio cable to my receiver and powered up the sub-woofer. Speaker wire was included, but I didn’t need it with my existing system. After fiddling with the Receiver to set up the sub-woofer and re-equalize the system for the new speakers I was listening to an action movie. What a difference!

that the wire does not lock into the speaker connections. I used the included wire while waiting delivery of #12 gauge wire and after installing the heavier wire I need to reprogram the receiver to lower the input to each speaker. The larger wire is much better at transmitting to audio to the speakers. Less resistance.
