Summary: Speakers work good but where not as described. One...There is only 5 feet of cord between the two flat panel units and there is only 5 feet of wire to connect to the right panel. Two... The wires are all permanently connected except for the 7 foot shielded wire to the sub woofer. That wire was the only shielded one. Three.... None of the connections where gold plated as advertised. Over all , I feel ripped off and advise not to pay more than 25 dollars for this system.
