Wall-mounted flatscreens look great. Big floor standing speakers sitting in front them of them don’t. If this hits home, today’s deal is a very cheap fix.
The Athena WS-60 gives you the say on the wall vs. floor debate, it’s flexible. It also can serve as your left/right, rears, or even center. Heck, at this price, buy five, add a cheap sub and your set for a starter home theater.
Each speaker has a multi-transducer arrangement that Athena claims will provide “numerous advantages over traditional designs”. No details after that, but again, these speakers are only $89, so don’t get picky. They have Teteron 1” tweeters while multiple woofers replace the usual one-per arrangement. Four passive radiators also help extend the bass response even lower.
An included wall mounting bracket allows horizontal and vertical alignments, and also serves as a small footprint base. The WS-60 also comes with an attached round table top base for use on your mantle, A/V furniture, or on any flat surface.
This deal is featured on Woot, so don’t be surprised if it sells out fast.
