Great Until the Subwoofer Fails
25 August 2013
Summary: After many happy years with a series of CSW products, I ordered an extreme 2.1 multi-media system in 2011. About 1 month after the warranty expired, the BassCube 821 sub shorted out. CSW will fix it for $200 plus shipping, or sell me a new one.
Summary: I own six of the Extreme 2.1 models. I also have two friends that own the same models. In all fairness, they are the best sounding speakers in their class that I've discovered so far. They are great until you use them too long in one setting. Then they break, and they will eventually break.
Summary: Have purchased several items from Cambridge the last five years with disappointing results. I purchased 7 speakers for a home entertainment center, and in less than 5 years two of them have failed. One was replaced under warranty and one I had to pay for.
Summary: I bought a bass cube computer speaker 8 watt system for $200 about two years ago. the amp in the cube blew. Cambridge said it needed to be replaced for about $150. This unit was played less than 50 hrs yet I was told this is a reasonable but short life span. Sorry I expect better.
