Summary: These speakers have a fantastic sound. They are heavy. This isn't an issue if they are going to stay in the same spot, but my wife uses them for working out and their weight does cause a carrying issue.
Summary: well, i just got these... i should have listened to the few reviews that said the mid drivers dont work because they dont. put your finger on them and they are dead... hope i can return them... and i cant return them because they are hazardous material!!!!!!!
Summary: I bought these on ebay used for $35. Based on that price I have no complaints. They look great. The specs are over-inflated. These are really 5-10 watt RMS per channel with the low-end frequency response being about 80Hz (not 20Hz). I use them with a Visio 39" TV in a bedroom instead of a sound bar- for my purpose they work great (I don't need them to be any louder). They sound way better than many sound bars I have heard priced up to about $100.
Superb sound for the price; sounds fills big room easily

Summary: I purchased these speakers for a 42 inch television I have that has terrible sound- and is in a large room (about 15 x 20 feet) . I had two other options -- first, to use some very good speakers with a high end amp that I have not been using. This would not work, since I do not want my family turning my expensive amp on and off all the time.
Summary: I had these speakers for about a year and a half before the sound started crackling and fading. About a week ago they just completely died on me. I emailed Genius twice with an email asking about warranty or repair and they never got back to me at all. The speakers look real nice but that's about it. They were so bass heavy I couldn't listen to anything real loud without them shaking off my desk anyway. Total garbage save up some money and buy something good.
Summary: So, I bought this speaker four months ago. I like the sound of it: all the sounds were pretty good and decent. However, now when I change the volume, the sound started to crack and one side of the speakers (woofer) does not work. Basically it keeps making white noises. So, I contacted them for warranty, and they said I was able to send it to them. However, I had to pay the shipping fee just to send it back and get it checked on.
Summary: I ordered these and received a defective pair, one cuts out and doesn't work. I gave them 2 stars because they do look good. I have tried to return them to Amazon, but in the returns it lists these speakers as unreturnable due to hazardous material... WTF? I have kids playing around these and they're speakers, and an amplifier... aren't they?? These are electronics right???
This are s***. I had 2 pairs of them and both of them failed me. And it was always the main one with the volume bass and treble

Summary: This are s***. I had 2 pairs of them and both of them failed me. And it was always the main one with the volume bass and treble controls. They are really low quality speakers that break easily. Didn't even last me a month. Even thought they did sound good, but sadly did not last for a long time. I wish I can send them back or get my money back. This is a steal.
