Summary: I was happy with these speakers until the on off volume control core was damaged and there is no way to fix it or get another, so I have to throw these expensive speakers in the trash because only the cord needs repaired. I have emailed the company and they say they can't provide replacement cords. Basically they didn't give a crap. Don't buy these or any other Creative Lab Speaker!
Summary: Ordered 2 sets of these speakers for use in the garage and basement with my MP3 player. Have these speakers at work, so I knew what to expect. Each set of speakers came in separate boxes. The manufacturer's box containing the speakers was packed in a much larger box (with a little craft paper)such that the inside box was very loose and able to rattle around in the outer box. Bottom line, one set worked and one set didn't.
Beware Cheap 1/8 Female Audio Jacks will ruin Sound Quality.
8 July 2007
Summary: Beware of the Creative Inspire T3030, the 1/8" Female Audio Jacks (Remote Control / Subwoofer) are made of extremely cheap components leading to bad contact between them and the male jack. This translates to poor audio quality, (with significant low & high frequency loss) It is a shame that what appeared to be a well designed 2.1 speaker system ended up ruined and sounding slightly better than cheap 5 dollar speakers due to extremely low quality Female Audio Jacks If you...
Summary: I don't know if these speakers came defective, but the subwoofer air exhaust lining vibrates. And this produces an awful sound, unless you virtually shut down the subwoofer it won't rattle. I'm returning them tomorrow, they are a pice of junk.
