Summary: So for those that have one channel go down, pull apart the right (main/controlling) speaker and shoot the rheostats behind the 3 knobs with the compressed canned air. Did the trick for me, the canned air is cheap, and it could bring your speakers back to life!
Pros: First off, I bought these used, but in researching about them after getting them, I found these reviews here so thought I would post a review/response as I am a Newegg regular...
Cons: In response to the reviews of one or both channels going out, being used I didn't know what to expect... Well, turns out the left channel of mine didn't work. Figures... So I started fiddling to diagnose WHAT the issue might be. Using the PC L/R balance and different cables and such, narrowed down the speaker itself was fine - played OK under right circumstances. Taking the right speaker apart (6 screws down the 2 bottom holes and 4 holes where the grille goes) there'...
Summary: If you want a good speaker system that doesn't take up a lot of space, these are your best bet. I was considering the T40, but having owned these for almost 2 years I can say that they are all you'll need.
Pros: I own the original T20 series I, which are identical to the series II except for the color.
Cons: -Short cable length between the two speakers, but they are designed for a computer desk so not that big of a deal.
Summary: I do not own the Series II, but rather, the Series I speakers. Both sets are practically identical; using the same amps, same speakers, but there are some cosmetic differences and a more energy efficient ac adapter.
Pros: - EXCELLENT bass output for such a small system!
Summary: I'm very pleased with these speakers. I think they sound pretty fantastic for a $100 2.0 system. I listen to practically every genre of music From Mozart to Bernstein to Johnny Cash to Nirvana and Tupac to Emenim. Going through my playlists I was really pleased with its range and I never really felt that I needed more bass or that I needed it to be any louder.
Summary: For the ones who are trying to compare this to other speakers, I also have the Bose companion II 2.0 and these are better hands down better mids, highs, and base im not saying that the companions sound awful they sound good too but these are just better and it should be because they are about an inch taller than the companions (about the same width an length) these are comparable to the AV-30 which a friend of mine owns I went with these over the AV-30 simply because of...
Pros: Looks and Sounds great! treble and bass control, headphone and aux jacks. mids and highs are crystal clear.
Cons: It would be nice if they put some notches on the knobs, it will be easier to turn and you'll know for sure that you turned it. sometimes your not quite sure if you need to grip it tighter because there is a possibility that your finger slipped, it is very smooth.
