The best for the money at any level of audio

DoubleDoug from North Hollywood, CA, Sonic Electronix
2 April 2012
  • Conclusion: I'm a pro recording engineer with a number of hits and award winning recordings to my credit. Know that the COBY CSMP80s, when properly placed and set up (the bass control is critical), are good enough for me to use as my main mix speakers!!! At a little over $30, that is phenomenal. I would not have believed it until I heard it. My go-to speakers are JBL LSR28Ps, which are highly accurate. The Coby's are not quite as good, but again, I could mix acceptably on them.

Terrific for the money!

Ash from Los Angeles, CA, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: For the money, this is the best speaker set in the world. It seems impossible to have gotten so good and balanced a sound at the oh, so low price. I know a top record engineer/mixer who checks his mixes on them. He praises them for the solid bass and overall balance of frequencies. The sub-woofer does not have to be turned up much beyond one third.

worth the price!

Scubaman from Stockton, CA, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: Well, Cons: States it puts out 100 watts. I don't know exactly cause I have not used a meter to measure it. Sounds like half. Low in the midrange do to speaker size. Pros: It was well worth the price and loud and clear enough for a small room. Bottom line, if u want power. Go buy the Klipsch 2.1. It will cost u another $125 or so but has a real 200 watt sound. I have it on my computer and the coby in da rest room for my mp3.

CSV from Fresno,CA, Sonic Electronix

  • Conclusion: The Coby csmp-80 is a very good stereo/speaker system. The Coby csmp-80 has a well structured box for the subwoofer, and 2 towers for the speakers. The subwoofer is the best for something this small. it has a very good bass response, it plays low notes very well, and high notes are not to bad. The knobs on the back of the subwoofer box are easy to use but sometimes they are hard to find if you are not looking but soon you will get used to were they are.

Great speakers, dont be discouraged!

Anon from Riverside, CA, Sonic Electronix
27 May 2010
  • Conclusion: These speakers are an amazing value.. Coby is a pretty cheap brand but this is one product they did rite! I have 10+ years of dealing with audio equipment.. and these speakers are still surprising the VALUE they have. Pros: Great sub, good CLEAN bass. Decently loud. Good speakers, they seem to pair decently nice with the woofer. Cons: Lacking a little in the mids, but if your no audiophile, you'll be just fine!

Good price, good quality

KW, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Really good price for pretty decent quality speakers. I had read a few reviews saying the mids were weak, and they are, but it's not something that upsets me enough to consider a return. My main issue is that the main volume and base knobs are on the back of the base, and you can't change the base anywhere but there. There is a secondary volume control on the aux cable, so the main one can be maxed and that one manipulated, but it still bothers me a little.
