Great Value, good for small room only, Don't power with cheap amp, 100 actual watts or up.

  • Summary: Good little system. Installed in 40 foot RV, so living room was probably 10X10. Needs significant power to run these little speakers, 85db sensitivity rating is pretty low for anything under 100 watts RMS. Denon 1513 doesn't quite have enough for large area. Good for den or similar space. Well built and good value for money.

I ws quite disappointed, should have gone with a different build

  • Summary: bought this because of the good reviews and the price. The sub woofer died within just a few weeks so now I am stuck with a useless speaker system. It appears diode on one of the boards shorted out. Online research shows that this is a typical problem with these sub woofers. I definitely would not recommend this speaker system.

Fails to Deliver

IntelliReview, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought one of these a few years ago and the subwoofer went out in less than a year. I contacted them, and they sent me a new one. That subwoofer lasted just over a year and now it is worthless. I do NOT recommend this product!

Boston Acoustics XS5.1

Gerry S., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: one con is the hookup to the speaker. Need to angle it in there to grab the terminal. Once you get past that, it's all golden.
  • Pros: Small size, blends well into a white wall, sound is on par with higher end speaker systems for less than half the price. Would buy more if price point is below $250 again.
  • Cons: wiire connection to speaker

Really like these!

TrippMe, Amazon

  • Summary: I am not an audiophile so use that as a reference point. I was looking for competent SMALL speakers to deliver 5.1 for the TV and ambient sound for radio/Pandora and these perfectly fit the bill. Would definitely buy these again should the need arise.
