Summary: bought these to replace some old old old Dell speakers....my Dells were nothing fancy, but did have a sub woofer on the floor.........I read the largely stellar reviews for these guys, and thought they would serve me well, and allow me to get rid of the subwoofer on the floor under my feet...........These Edifiers are good speakers, sounded crisp and clean......BUT they lacked the bass my ears had been used to hearing, even from my lackluster Dells.
Summary: These speakers are great. However, one of the subwoofers blew out within the first week of purchase. The volume on the Exclaim and my computer was not even on the highest options, and the subwoofer still blew. Very disappointed as these were great speakers. EDIT: After returning these speakers, I bought the Harman Kardon SOUNDSTICKS III. The mid-highs are BETTER on the Edifier, but the bass on the SOUNDSTICKS is much much better.
