Summary: Initially I would have rated this product as 4 stars. I had it hooked up through the headphone jack to my PS3 (I have a red/white auxiliary to headphone jack converter that does not come with the speakers) and it performed reasonably well for watching Netflix, Hulu, and gaming. My only complaint would have been there was no bass control, and sometimes the bass would distort despite the volume not being turned up that high. Otherwise not a deal breaker... However...
Summary: Shorts out...should have sent them back. Sub is pretty much a joke...other 2 piece speakers much better IMHO. Not sure why the reviews were so great as it is nothing special for sound either. My old Creative 2 speaker system sounded just as good...before dropped and broke.
Cheap, Speaker Already Distorted, Pay more for Quality Speakers

Summary: One of my speakers already sounds distorted, while my 10 year old Altec Lansing speakers still sound great. This is one of those really cheap items that you should really just pay more for a good quality brand.
Summary: By Danny True story. Recieved the speakers april 4th, 2012 Subwoofer started to crack and distort on april 22nd The subwoofer really does give off too much bass in general when i heard people say "too much bass" in the reviews, i thought "wow i love bass, this will be great" HA! This system gives off so much bass that it distorts and it really isnt nice to hear, like its not a thumping bass, its more like a grumpy bass.
