Looks great and sounds good for something of its small stature

Tyson Hamilton, Amazon

  • Summary: Looks great and sounds good for something of its small stature. I personally prefer a more powerful center channel and will probably end up purchasing a different center to use with this system. BE SURE TO USE SMALLER GAUGE SPEAKER WIRE WITH THESE SPEAKERS! It was impossible for me to connect my 12 AWG speaker wire to these speakers. I had to trim about half the strands in order to connect the speaker wire.

the fuse is still good. Beware

  • Summary: The subwoofer died after ~ 2 yrs. Not blown out... the fuse is still good. Beware... the warranty on the subwoofer is only 1yr. After this happened to me, I looked online (and even here on Amazon) and noticed quite a few similar stories. Otherwise, quite pleased with the satellites.

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

Patrick, Amazon

  • 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

simon121204, Ebay
1 September 2014
  • 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!
