High quality home audio doesn’t have to break the bank. As proof, we’d like to introduce you to the new SP-BS22-LR bookshelf speakers from Pioneer. Whether you use them as stereo speakers or part of a multi-channel home theater system, with their ability to handle 80 watts the SP-BS22-LR’s deliver wide frequency response and sophisticated sound quality regardless of the source.

70 Years of Audio Firsts
These speakers come with a remarkable pedigree of over 70 years of Pioneer audio heritage and industry firsts. Like every speaker we build, these are engineered to offer incredible design and amazing sound quality. But then that’s exactly what you’d expect from speakers designed by internationally renowned speaker engineer, Andrew Jones. As Pioneer’s Chief Speaker Engineer, Andrew has designed some of the world’s finest loudspeakers, some costing as much as $80,000. Now he has brought his high-end expertise and passion to the creation of this affordable bookshelf speaker. And while the price is considerably lower than some of his other efforts, the expectation and delivery of accurate sound reproduction are the same.

Thinking Out Of the Box
Typically you’ll find most bookshelf speakers not only come in a box, they are a box. And while that might be better for production costs, it isn’t better for sound reproduction. The SP-BS22-LR speakers utilize a true curved cabinet design. So besides the aesthetics being considerably more pleasing, this stiffer design reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet, resulting in high-performance and exceptional sound quality. As you look at them, you’ll also notice our unique speaker grills. They’re beautiful and elegant in their own right, but not for their own sake. They protect the speakers, but are also removable if you prefer to see the drivers themselves.

The Inside Story

Crossover: The job of the cross over in a speaker is to break the audio signal into low, high and sometimes mid-range frequencies. It’s an important job, and it uses circuitry like inductors and capacitors to accomplish it. Much of the competition uses an extremely simple, low-cost cross over made up of a single capacitor and inductor. The Pioneer SP-BS22-LR utilizes a sophisticated 6 component high quality cross over. The reasoning is simple: we do it because it’s one more way of insuring high quality sound that makes its presence known.

Woofer: There are many challenges designing and manufacturing a woofer capable of delivering true bass performance. In the SP-BS22-LR, we’ve added a structured surface to the 4-inch woofer. By doing so, not only is rigidity improved, so is bass accuracy. Engineers have also vented the pole piece, again improving bass response from the same size woofers in previous models.

Tweeter: To widen the sweet spot of the 1-inch High Efficiency Soft Dome tweeter, we’ve engineered a custom wave guide. Increasing tweeter efficiency, together with newly designed crossovers, allows the SP-BS22-LR’s play louder using less power.
Whatever your system, the SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Speakers are ready to step it up with authentic audio reproduction to bring your listening experience to the next level.

Pioneer Andrew Jones Designed Bookshelf Speakers - Pair - SPBS22LR is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real audiophile quality for peanuts After reading rave reviews in all the major high end audio magazines on these speakers and the designer, I had to take a chance and buy a pair. I hooked them up to some much more expensive electronics and was blown away.....audiophile types if blindfolded would guess these speakers cost five times as much or more than they do. They are very smooth, have enough bass for most music and are ideal for apartment or condo living rooms. It kind of peaves me off that this type of value is rarely seen or heard these days......of course other than the home theatre people no one these days seems to care about good home stereo anymore...highly recommended !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make time to relisten to everything you own Over 10 years ago, after listening to many budget speakers, I settled on a JBL home theatre package. To my ear, the sound was top notch for the price I wanted to spend and have been very happy since. However, after the recent power outage trashed the subwoofer, I was in the market to replace it. After researching I found this Pioneer speaker series and saw it had been designed by Andrew Jones. Do yourself a favour and listen to the interviews he's done about how he designed this series. Once I brought these home and started listening I have been continually blown away. Such awesome treble clarity. Everything sounds fresh again and I want to listen to everything I have just to experience it through this system.
