Creative inspire

GREGORY R., Newegg
29 September 2012
  • Summary: If it had came with a built in adapter of some sort or even a buy this get one free deal it would have been possibly the greatest deal of the year. but i give them three because now i have to spend more money to make them work right :\
  • Pros: -Amazing sound for size and cost -easy setup -recommended for dorm rooms or small bedrooms. you will be shocked at how loud they are
  • Cons: -Wires are short. can be remedied with extensions -I Use this with my Qosmio x505 and it only has 1 audio port so i can only get 2 speakers and the sub woofer to work. Should have came with an adapter

  • Summary: The whole satellite-subwoofer system was invented by Henry Kloss who founded Cambridge SoundWorks who were then bought out by Creative Labs. So believe me when I tell you that these are bonafide
  • Pros: I have had the same basic system for almost 7 years now paid less then twenty clams for them at Wally World as I remember; still thumps hard; with a good sound card these will astound you.
  • Cons: If you want to feel the earth move well it's obvious your going to have to pay much much more.

Additional Information required

Michael G., Newegg
15 August 2010
  • Summary: The information on this item is hit and miss, w/o adapter and/or interface details I am hesitant to invest upwards of $70 (after s/h) only to discover that the system may not even be capable to interface with my current sound system setup.
  • Pros: Extremely affordable price on a brand name system that has been a solid pillar of sound design for as long as I can remember. Creative has always been known for ease of use and powerful, clear wide-range sound.
  • Cons: A system of this caliber will *require* an after market sound card upgrade powerful enough to process the sounds this setup could produce - an additional $15-$20 investment (for a cheap but solid/respectable card)

An OK product from Creative...Couldnt get the sub working at all

Manish Trivedi, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: Bought this product and was initially very happy to get a CREATIVE product. I bought these speakers along with Creative X-Fi 5.1 USB soundcard to be used with my laptop. Installation was easy but the main problem began when I could not get the subwoofer working at all...

SUB

Jen, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: First of all the speakers don't plug into TV's unless you have some weird TV that works for it. And the Sub wont work at all. I tried to unplug the system and plug it back in and also unplug all the speakers and nothing worked. No bass from any speaker also. Terrible

Decent Inexpensive 5.1 (3.1?) Speaker Set

Kort, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: I've liked most of Creative's products in the past, so I looked forward to trying out the Inspire T6160s. They came neatly packaged but the set up instructions left me wanting. After the cumbersome job of wiring 5 speakers to the sub, I hooked it up to my son's Windows Vista (SP2) desktop.
