Seriously Killer Speakers,

Joshy G, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Seriously Killer Speakers, provides solid highs and surprisingly good lows (for such a small base). The speakers work really well in my angular and off center setup (room limitations) and can get pretty loud for their size without distortion.

Crystal Sound

Brooks A., Newegg
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I put together a new sound setup for my parents since they were using an OLD RCA HTIB setup. I saw these on sale and told him to pull the trigger. I set up the new speakers, with a new Yamaha receiver. Totally blown away.
  • Pros: Laser sharp sound! I was hearing new things in movies I have seen many times. Beautiful speakers fill any size room with consistent and incredibly crisp sound. The satellite speakers are surprisingly powerful. After using the auto calibration on the Yamaha, the center put out just the right amoun...
  • Cons: The sub is pretty incredible for its size, but may not fill out a larger room with the kind of cinematic rumble most are used to. It does make for a very even and precise listening experience.

great for size (need to get crossovers correct)

David O., Newegg
18 June 2012
  • Summary: At first I was not happy. Set your receivers crossover to control your subwoofer at 120 (by pass on sub) Set your front to 120 Center to 200 Rear to 110 Awesome. These are the Denons Aaudyssey settings and made a difference!!
  • Pros: Great overall sound. Lacks mid bass but as a small satellite system you can expect very spacious sound that should satisfy the average listener. Subwoofer is very accurate. What really blew me away was putting in blue ray "the 25th anniversary rock & roll hall of fame concerts" in DTS. Great sound.
  • Cons: Lack of mid bass but I was expecting that.

One active woofer - two passive radiators

Michael H., Newegg
9 June 2012
  • Summary: To answer the question(s) about the subwoofer. It does not have a port to vent the bass from the cabinet. Instead it uses two (2) passive radiators on the left and right side of the cabinet to transfer this energy out of the cabinet.
  • Pros: see below
  • Cons: see below

Simply amazing!

27 May 2012
  • Summary: Wife wanted surround sound, but small since it was in our open living room. I was not going to go bose. Orbs I am sure are nice sounding, but ugly. Mirage is nothing but bar-none a awesome bargain. The sub itself for $400 is worth it. Newegg is just giving away these speakers; I'm telling you!!
  • Pros: I took the chance and got these on sale, but prior to doing so I heading out to my local Best Buy Magnolia store to demo them. Keep in mind first off these MX's were not in the closed in room, but in the open floor area which s HUGE!! The speakers were only hooked up 3.1 (Front left, right, cente...
  • Cons: Small as Bose but we all know bose $uck!

Confusion regarding the sub...

Brian W., Newegg
18 April 2012
  • Summary: Regarding the speaker count on the sub.... Per the description: "dual 6.5-inch black anodized aluminum passive radiators and a 6.5-inch black anodized aluminum cone woofer" This sub has one 6.5" woofer and two 6.5" passive radiators.
  • Pros: Solid Sub at a great price...
  • Cons: Weak Center I prefer standard speakers versus the "Omnipolar" technology, but it is implemented well here.

  • Summary: My wife says they are sexy and look great when mounted on the wall, the sub contains two 6.5 inch passive radiators, one on each side and one 6.5 inch down firing woffer. The sound that this little sub produces is stunning. Bose is no longer the lead dog in small speaker set ups any longer.
  • Pros: The Sub, Front, Center and rear speakers are finished to near perfection. Excellent quality, solid performance and great sound. Sound dispersion is incredible. Listen to this Setup in the Big Box stores and then come back here and buy them. The price quite frankly is unbeliveable.
  • Cons: I really dont think of this as a Con, binding posts would have been nice but in my opnion would have been to large for these sweet little gems. The spring clips for the speaker wire are of high quality and make for a solid connection

Exactly what I was looking for

Reece Fam, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: We have had these speakers for a while now. We had nice floor speakers before, but the sound quality on these are just plain AWESOME. No matter what the volume level, you hear the voices clearly in movies. And for music, it fills the room. We are using them in a room that is 19x28 feet.

God Of War, Amazon
27 May 2011
