The SP-BS22-LR compact speakers from Pioneer are ideal as computer speakers, stereo speakers for listening for pleasure, or part of a multi-channel home theater system. They deliver a wide frequency response and sophisticated sound quality regardless of the source.
70 Years of Audio Firsts
These speakers come with a pedigree of over 70 years of Pioneer audio heritage and industry firsts. Like every speaker Pioneer builds, these are engineered to offer incredible design and amazing sound quality. 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 compact 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 compact 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.
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 Compact Speakers are ready to step it up with authentic audio reproduction to bring your listening experience to the next level.

Comments about Pioneer Andrew Jones Designed Book shelf Loudspeakers:
These speakers are hard to be outdone by virtually any speakers in their class or price range. In fact, they sound surprisingly bigger and better than many larger speakers costing more money. Many folks (including myself), would venture to say that you could easily spend two to three times more money to get equal or better sound and build quality than these BS-22s offer. The bass in these sound exceptional and tight for their 4" size. However, they REALLY seem to shine in their incredible mid-range delivery. Additionally, male and female vocals sound extremely crisp and authentic. The speakers also hold their composure quite well, even at high volume. Paired with a subwoofer, you'll be blown away by these.
I have done quite a bit of research on their comparative performance, specs and sound quality from many different venues prior to purchasing these speakers. In short, their performance really can't be beaten, ESPECIALLY for the very reasonable price.
