Summary: I bought these speakers to replace the 40 watt sound bar I had bought for my High-Def TV. I bought the speaker bar without the subwoofer and was disappointed. I disconnected the soundbar and connected these speakers instead. The sound is great at 1/4 the price! I used the RCA stereo out on my TV, I got an adapter that changed the RCA to 3.5mm, another adapter, 3.5mm female to female, and hooked up the speakers. Sounds great!
Summary: Overall these speakers are pretty decent. The high frequencies are a bit unclear, but acceptable at lower volumes, some EQ adjustments helped even out their response. The lower frequencies from the subwoofer add a nice fullness to their sound.
Summary: At first I was skeptical b/c I read some disappointing reviews, but I really wanted to get a set for my room because hearing the stock speakers to a laptop gets boring. When they arrived and I plugged them in, skeptically expecting them to not attain my satisfaction, played Kendrick Lamar's "Money Trees", and the bass dropped sending me chills and thrills for these small speakers. Definitely did more than what I expected, wish I got two sets instead of one.
Summary: After searching for weeks for PC speakers in the retail stores. I cam up with over priced low watt speakers. After finding this product on amazon I took a chance and ordered it. Received it and immediately set them up. I can say I was shockingly very pleased with the speakers. For around $20 I get 50watts of pure sound. No rumble or rattles.
Summary: The bass on this 50w system is surprisingly unsatisfactory compared to the altec lansing BX1121 i also use. If you are looking for decent bass, this is not the system for you. otherwise it would work nice for background type situations. There is bass, and in a way it could be considered more rich, maybe accurate is the word i'm looking for, but it isn't pounding that is for sure.
