Dayton Audio Short Floor Standing 5.1 Speaker Systems
The budget-priced Dayton Audio 5.1 surround sound speaker system bundles below are noteworthy for two reasons. First, priced at less than $400 for the six-piece system, they are the cheapest, most affordable 5.1 home theater speaker systems featured on this site that include floor standing front left and right speakers. Second, those two front speakers also happen to be the SHORTEST floorstanding speakers on this website! Notice I didn’t say “tower” speakers. 🙂
Besides buying a Dayton Audio 5.1 speaker system, you will also need to separately supply or select and purchase a home theater receiver, as well as speaker wire, subwoofer cable, HDMI cables, et cetera to complete the proper setup and installation of your home theater audio system.
The 2-way, 3-driver floor standing front left and right speakers are a pair of 30″ tall high (I told you they were short), 7.1″ wide, 9.5″ deep T652-AIR [manufacturer’s link] [available as pair at Amazon] which feature a 1″ AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter with a folded Kapton ribbon diaphragm, dual 6.5″ polypropylene cone woofers, and a front port. The wall-mountable 15.8″ wide, 5.5″ high, 5.7″ deep C452-AIR center channel speaker [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] features a 1″ tweeter and dual 4.5″ woofers in a sealed enclosure.
The rear surround speakers are a pair of compact wall-mountable 9.5″ high, 5.5″ wide, 5.7″ deep B452-AIR bookshelf speakers [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] which feature a 1″ tweeter and 4.5″ woofer in a sealed enclosure. Lastly, you get your choice between two powered subs to handle the low bass frequencies. The smaller 14.8″ high, 14.2″ wide, 15.8″ deep, 30-ish pound 100-watt continuous SUB-1000 [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] features a front-firing 10″ woofer and is bottom ported. The larger and slightly more powerful 16.8″ high, 16.2″ wide, 17.8″ deep, 40-ish pound 120-watt continuous SUB-1200 [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] features a front-firing 12″ woofer and is also bottom-ported.
