    No reason why not, but you could probably do better. The Control 1 is a commercial speaker, so you are paying for a more robust case and some protection circuitry and also the mounting points whrn fixing to walls etc. As a design, it's also more than 20 years old.

    For the same sort of money, you could get 2 pairs of these: Q ACOUSTICS 2020IGraphite Speakers Per Pair which will sound significantly better, with more low end and cleaner highs.

    Believe it or not that's exactly the set of speakers I opted for when i got to the shop ! Going back tomorrow for the centre speaker, very happy with these two, next payday I will add two more for the rear two
