Re-engineered for 2012, these Pioneer SP-BS22-LR bookshelf speakers were a bestselling audio item purchased by our readers on Amazon last year. They may be an older model, but they’re still a favorite when it comes to budget speakers.
These speakers house a four-inch structured-surface woofer with oversized magnets, one-inch high-efficiency soft-dome tweeter, and six-element crossover. They have 80-watt power handling, a nominal impedance of six ohms, and they offer accurate, high-performance sound. The curved cabinet design also reduces standing waves, and the speaker grills are removable if you prefer to have the drivers on display.
Designed by the internationally renowned speaker engineer Andrew Jones, this compact speaker was built to deliver quality sound at a reasonable price. And with a list price of $129, they fulfill that promise. But right now on Amazon, these classic compact bookshelf speakers are only $99 — that’s 24 percent off. Take that $30 to the bank or buy these popular mounting brackets, or the wire and banana plugs to get them set up.

These side-clamping speaker mounts hold up to 33 pounds. They’re easy to install and permit a 360-degree swivel and 10-degree tilt up or down. The clamps adjust to hold speakers from 5.3 to 11 inches wide and 13 inches deep. Made of heavy-duty steel, the pair come with standard mounting hardware and a wall-plate cover. They were the bestselling mounts on Amazon last year and should fit the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR perfectly.
AmazonBasics 16-gauge Speaker Wire 100 feet (
This AmazonBasics 16-gauge wire was the bestselling speaker wire of 2017. What else is there to say? It comes wrapped on a spool, and one side of the plastic jacket is marked with a white line so it’s easy to distinguish the polarity during setup. Pair them with these Monoprice banana plugs, which were the second most popular item purchased by our readers on Amazon last year.
