Pinnacle BD 1000 Review


Pinnacle has done a decent job with the execution of their BD 1000 3-way, 4 driver slimline tower speaker system both aesthetically and performance-wise. They understand the tradeoffs in providing a small form factor tower speaker system and know their audience of buyers for such a product. A few tweaks to the crossover, and usage of a smaller non horn-loaded tweeter could have potentially improved product performance but I suspect many folks will appreciate the overall sound of this product as is. If you’re looking for an unobtrusive, relatively affordable compact tower speaker system that gives you plenty of boom and sizzle with excellent midrange clarity, then this is your speaker. MSRP: $1,299
