Lowest By: $19
Is It Worth It?: Offering the lowest per-unit price we've seen, this Editors' Choice deal makes these 125 watt SAT-series satellite speakers from Energy Take a must-have for home sound systems. Compact and black, they disappear into a room. Though they won't been seen, the 3.5" woofer and 1" aluminum dome Tweeter ensure they'll be heard.
