Now Your probably asking yourself, what the heck is an NSB? Well, NSB is short for No Stinkin' Badges, Named by a person who posts at parts express(also a DIY'er). These little things are now down to .49c  a peice, and they sound great!
 
This page is on a design with  A Center channel, Left, and Right speakers, using the NSB, and the also budget, onkyo tweeter.

Listining Impressions:
 
Let me first say, these things have more bass then the .49c pricetag has a right to. They sound good for the low pricetag. When all put together, i  broke em in a little, listened to some music they preformed exceptionally hitting with a clean high, the midrange was a tad harsh, which is common for the little NSB's. I watched a couple of movies, had to tune my reciever to em a little bit. These definitly need a subwoofer to mate with em. Overall out of 10 i give these and 8 because of the bang-for-the-buck ratio. Excellent Speakers!
