Works Fine and low price too  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use one on my TS-520. Works well and can't beat the price.

I like em'  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had a pair for a few years now. One is dedicated to my Icom R75 and the other to a scanner. They were a great buy at $9.95 each and I wish I could find another for the garage workshop.

GREAT SPEAKER, TOO BAD IT'S GONE!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have used this speaker for everything from CB, to HF and now 2 meter FM at my shop. It is great for communications use. The good sound quality and wattage output rivals speakers costing $150, just because they are made by a big name ham radio manufacturer. If you can find one on Ebay or at a yard sale, buy it!

Now the bad news. Radio Shack does not sell them anymore and I do not know if RCA does either. Has anyone seen them for sale new recently? I would like to buy some!

Great Speaker, Great Price!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I purchased one new over a year ago for $20 from a local Radio Shack dealer. I should have bought two. I've used this speaker with everything from boat anchors to my most recent purchase, a 706MKIIG. This little speaker fills the room with big sound and very pleasant tone. Nice, quality construction and good looks. For the $20 price, it was a steal. A couple of friends bought theirs for $10. I have been unable to find another. If you can find one, buy it! Radio Shack has discontinued it.

Great Speaker... Great Deal ... if you can find one !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After reading the reviews while seeking a speaker for one of my receivers, I trotted down to my local Radio Shack store. They had none left... but the manager did a search and found three in surrounding stores. The price was $5.95 each so I snapped up all three. Performance is excellent and they are about the size and style of all the new radios. If you can locate one buy it.... and a spare or two !

Great Sound Reproduction  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had this speaker in the shack for more than 2 years. It has very good flat frequency response, and the sound reproduction is great connected to my Jupiter. It also handles 40 watts of power in case you install a large audio amplifier after your rig. Rating of 5 equals performance and value, you can find it discounted at some stores.

Great bargain!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I got one of these speakers at a closeout price of $9.95 to go with my new Ten Tec Jupiter as an external speaker. Works great sitting on top of the radio. I added four stick-on rubber feet to the bottom.

The Radio Shack store manager where I bought it is a ham, and he snatched one up for himself, too.

good deal  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I picked one of these up the other day at radio shack for 9.95. What a deal! I use the speaker with my 746 and it sounds great and looks real nice along side it. I rated this item a 5 because it works well, and the price is very reasonable.

Excellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
Just a well rounded speaker with excellent tone for CW and high fedelity SSB, or AM. I own three and use them on each significant radio in my shack. I've shelved the radio manufacture's speakers with the dust bunnies.

perfect fit  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I use an O-Sullivan older style computer desk with hutch. It's loaded with gear, so room for speakers is very limited. The cube just snuggles in and for it's size provides some comfortable listening. the box is heavy, shielded and rf proof. for a 5X5 cube freq response about 150hz-18khz it's a very good deal.
