Summary: This speakers are great sounding little things for the computer. If you are looking for a set of speakers with a subwoofer this is definately not a bad place to start. I have two sets of them and have had no problems with them, and yes... They are loud.
Summary: THE ACS33 SPEAKER SYSTEM CAME WITH THE PC I BOUGHT WAY BACK IN 2001. THE PC WAS AN OFF-BRAND AT THE TIME, KNOWN AS ABS. AFTER RESEARCHING MY OPTIONS FOR BEST PC UNDER $1000, I OPTED FOR THE ABS MAINLY BECAUSE THE REVIEW RAVED ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE CLEAR AND ACCURATE SOUND FROM THE INCLUDED SPEAKERS.
Summary: These speakers do not sound bad, don't get me wrong. If the company had actually used a tad more thought when designing the cabling they would have a winner. However, even the sound quality on these is not up to par with the set of Cambridge Soundworks/Creative Labs computer speakers I have that...
Summary: This speaker system is so cool. I have had it for about two years. The satellites produce crisp clear sounds with enhanced frequences in all ranges. The subwoofer-it is simply amazing how a little box like this can put out such rich bass. The sound just shakes my entire apartment.
Summary: Most people out there want a decent set of speakers that are not going to set them back a hundred dollars or more. I bought these on sale at Fry's Electronics 3 years ago, and everybody who had heard them say "WHOA!" That much sound from those little things.
Summary: I had never had any speakers on my computer other than the ones that came prepackaged with it. After they died a slow, horrible, crackling death, I started to shop around. I finally chose the ACS33, both for the terrific price and the good reviews here.
Summary: I've owned this exact set of speakers since my dad bought them for me as a gift when I was in college over 15 years ago. They're a little dirty and yellowed with age, but they still work the same as they did when I got them, talk about a quality product!
Summary: Certainly not the best speakers you could ever have for your computer, the ACS33 nevertheless fills an important niche in the market. If you're looking for subwoofered sound on the cheap, this is probably your best bet. They're competent performers, without taking price into consideration.
Summary: These speakers stunned me. When my tiny "came with the PC" speakers died, I looked into getting some similar little speakers, but then realized that I could spend just a few dollars more for this three speaker set. First, let me say that the subwoofer BOOOMS!
