Elegant Passive Bookshelf Speakers
The P17 is a set of passive bookshelf speakers that give you the freedom to amplify and press the boundaries of sound. * An external amplifier or receiver is required.
Solid Built MDF Enclosure
The P17 passive speakers use market proven MDF enclosures for the classic designed cabinets. These enclosures are engineered to reduce cabinet resonance effectively. The exterior of the speaker is finished in an elegent wood accent that fits both comtemporary decor as well as setups with a vintage vibe.
Silk Dome Tweeters and 4’ Bass Drivers
The P17 uses a ¾ - inch silk dome tweeter allowing for more room at the high-end. For bass, a 4-inch driver is used for smooth, rich, low frequency sound. Each speaker also has a bass reflex port that adds emphasis to the woofer.
Versatile Placement Options
The P17 is designed to fit perfectly on shelfs, deskstops and the walls. Complete your home theater with Edifier’s passive speakers. The P17 features a wall-mount bracket built-into each speaker allowing for use as rear channel or surround speakers.

I initially bought the R1280T - Edifier's cheapest active speakers here in Oz - to plug straight into the headphone out on my laptop for watching movies and YT vids. They're fine for this - I now have them hooked up to my TV - but not much chop for music. I didn't want to buy an external amp, but eventually my curiosity about the little P17 passive bookshelves got the better of me. Despite a somewhat scary sensitivity rating (77dB) they work fine with my little T-amp (80 AUD from memory) using Fiio's BTR5 as a DAC - all up, a cheap desktop combination. If you are plugging your amp directly into a phone or laptop headphone socket, you should be fine if the amp has at least 60W - that's the beauty of the T-amp despite its incredibly small size.
I'd like to start by trying to manage expectations. I think the closest I could get to credible stereo bookshelf speakers from anyone else in Oz when I bought the Edifiers was over $350 - you might get cheaper on EBay, but I know from personal experience that you cant even BUILD a pair of speakers for less than Edifier's asking prices for the P12/P17. None of the kits I saw - Parts Express or the Loudspeaker Kit here in Oz - even come close, and that's before you buy glue, masking tape and tools. That said, I dont expect these to compete with ~$500 bookshelf speakers from the slew of manufacturers that seem to compete from that pricepoint up to the tens of thousands here in Australia - everything that follows has to be taken in that light. Hype is a massive part of this industry, and I'm not here to add to it. If you have $500 to spend on a pair of passive bookshelf speakers, you can undoubtedly do better, but we aren't talking anywhere near that price. Put these in a JB Hi-Fi store and the asking price would be at least double IMO, and that would STILL be cheaper than their competitors.
If I had to nominate one thing that has blown me away about the Edifiers, it would be the bass response from those relatively tiny 4" woofers : I'm at the point now where I am considering stuffing the ports with a pair of socks to dampen the bass. There *are* tone controls, but I've never been a fan of those knobs and I tend to leave them very close to the centre with just a slight decrease in the treble. Even though the bass is clean and punchy, anyone who has to share a space with others in an apartment building knows just how quickly one can wear out one's welcome. If this isnt a consideration for you, and you have a small-to-medium sized room where you can let these off the leash I doubt that anyone other than serious headbangers will fail to be impressed for the money Edifier are asking. The combination of the cheap T-amp and the P17 - at least IMO - is considerably better than any Bluetooth speaker I've heard and many of those are in the 300-400 dollar range here in Australia. Build quality also appears to be excellent but obviously with less than a year's use I cant make any predictions regarding reliability over time. I've given then 4 stars on the basis of superb VFM slightly marred by the low sensitivity and elevated bass response which may turn some off.
