Summary: When I purchased these speakers I expected something much bigger and much better. First the package comes in a much larger box giving a false impression. Then, after setting up the tiny speakers and playing something, another disappointment, the sound is small too. You are only paying for the name brand with these speakers and are not getting bang for your buck. These speakers shouldn't cost more than $100.
Summary: This fact wouldn't be as insulting if those speakers weren't 1/4 the price of the ones I'm now reviewing. I bought the Music Monitor units to compare and possibly replace the Companion 2 speakers that I currenly own. Disappointment set in immediately upon opening the box. These speakers both look and sound cheap. If you removed the Bose name plate, I would have surmised they had cost 25 dollars, perhaps 30.
