Mostly off-topic, but responding to help and get fully on topic.

Which ones and how many?

There are five Andrew Jones designed Pioneer "bookshelf" speakers: SP-BS21-LR, SP-BS41-LR, SP-BS22-LR, SP-BS22A-LR and SP-EBS73-LR.

but they don't come with instructions on how to plug them in. Googling I've figured out I need the wire to the speakers which is fine but then my Panasonic plasma and blu ray player only have plug sockets. What am I missing?
In short: an amplifier (or receiver).



Your signal source - TV, BD player, etc. - outputs a "line" level (or digital) signal which needs to be amplified (and decoded) before it can be sent to the speakers. Analogue signals from the source to the amplifier are typically connected with "RCA" terminated cables. Digital signals from the source to the receiver (which includes an amplifier) may be "RCA" terminated coaxial cables or optical (TOSlink) cables, but these days are all HDMI cables.

Pioneer has several receivers which can often be found for reasonable sale prices, however any modern receiver should work fine.

You don't mention which BD player or TV (beyond the very wise choice of a Panasonic plasma) you have, so it's possible it may have a built-in amp on one or both, however you still want to buy a receiver. The receiver will be the hub of your audio-visual world, with all sources connecting to it (by HDMI), display by HDMI and speakers by speaker cable.

Obviously there are many choices and details which fall way outside this thread and you should start with some kind of guide to home theaters for beginners, however please follow up here with details related to the speakers themselves.

Thank you so much for the answer. This is the missing link I was looking for! I'll have a read around about receivers.

I have two SP-BS22A-LR speakers, the Panasonic is the TH-P50ST60A, the blu ray player is a cheapo no name 3D Laser (it's region free).

Hello, for those who are interested to modify their SP-FS52 speakers, Mr Dennis Murphy from http://philharmonicaudio.com/ was kind enough to send me the complete and detailed procedure to swap the tweeter and modify the speaker crossover. I'll contact Mr Murphy to ask him permission if he accepts that I can transmit this document. Contact me for more informations.

Kind of an odd question. I was thinking of raising the tower speakers up a small amount (around an inch) and noticed the FS52's really just sit flat on my hardwood floor with these very thin rubber pads underneath.

I have a pack of Isolate it! Sorbothane rubber feet.

Would the speakers actually benefit from what may be decoupling them off the floor? Id hate to waste the rubber feet otherwise?

Hello Caesu,

I exactly asked same question to Tom Vodhanel from Power Sound Audio, and you can use rubber feet. But 8 pieces of rubber for 26$ its quite expensive.

Check those weblinks too :
