Summary: Over rated. Had these speakers passed down from my sister. This is just an ordinary so so Mid-Fi speaker. It does work ok as a desktop speaker though. Pros: Highs are crisp at low to moderate-low volume. Tight bass. Cons: Things just get worst when you go beyond 1/4 volume. Mid range is recessed and not crisp. Distortion is audible even at moderate volume. Very weak bass for such a large box. Total waste of wood.
