Terrible, circuitry problems

Jeff B, Amazon

  • Summary: Do not buy these speakers. Its an attractive price with good specifications, but there are well documented cases of the subwoofer shorting out after a few months of ownership. Also, the satellite speakers use an irregular voltage/wattage (unsure of terms), rendering them useless on any other non-Creative stereo. Now I have a bunk sound system.

Keeps cutting out

  • Summary: I bought this unit a while back. While the sound is just fine, it constantly cuts out. I think it trips an internal breaker or something. It stops working and I have to shut it down and let it cool before I can use it again. Customer service was of little help. Save your money, and choose another unit.

Sub Woofer stopped working after 2 and 1/2 months

  • Summary: today my wife noticed that the subwoofer wasn't working. I've turned it off, let it cool, restarted... nothing. It has plenty of space, I keep it fairly low so I don't anger the downstairs neighbors. I'm going to try out the warranty but I am not happy. They sent a new one. So far so good. I just had a defective model, seems to be becoming fairly common, (unrelated?) had my camera and monitor go bad after just a few days (from different companies). Or I'm just unlucky.
