Summary: Got these because my pretty excellent ten-year-old old Cambridge Soundwork speakers didn't like my new Mac -- they suddenly buzzed when not in use, five or so seconds after the music or video sound stopped. Tried grounding them, then LIFTING the ground with a two-prong adapter plug, plugging them into a different outlet, using a UPS; no dice. The JBL Creatures were cheaper than a decent noise eliminator like the Hum X, so I decided to give them a shot.
Summary: these speakers look amazing and sound clear as a bell, ive heard things in songs ive never heard before with these speakers, but if you want to blast music these speakers are not for you, they start distorting a whole lot when you turn it up
Summary: Overall this system has been rated pretty high on Amazon so it's not going to be easy to dissuade you from buying them. You really cant go wrong for the price. For 50 bucks they are very good buy. I paid over 100 for them at compusa. My gripe with the system is that there is no mid range at all. Not surprising since they only come with 2 tweeters and a sub, thus no midrange. The bass also sounds muddy to me and the tweeters are a bit to shrill for my taste.
Summary: I don't know where the guys with the negative reviews got the small sound from, I seen these at a local mom and pop shop and it was blastin out X-Men III with the quality of a home theater system. I was hooked, just glad I saw them here since they are about 20 bucks cheaper :) If you have a good tricked out rig for gaming these speakers are the bomb! I never turned my old speakers off so the power switch where it is isnt a problem for me.
Summary: Although these speakers are truly amazing, the "touch" response on the sattlelite speakers gets stuck and usually not the volume you want/need. No way to fix it, just one of the drawbacks of a less expensive but great sounding speaker system for your Port. DVD or MP3 players.
Not good enough at what they're designed to do to justify purchasing them.

Excerpt: Like much of the technology I seem to buy these days, I bought these speakers for my girlfriend, and at the same time made the classic mistake of buying something purely based on looks. I judged a book by its cover, and the content turned out to be less than inspiring. To start with the positive, the speakers are incredibly good looking, easy to set up, and feel very solid and well constructed.
Summary: Sono stata convinta ad acquistare queste casse perché ho notato che si intonavano benissimo con il mio arredamento moderno. Bellissime da vedere come d altronde lo sono moti altoparlanti della jbl anche se io preferisco la versione di colore nero che si intonano su tutto mentre la rossa e la bianca stona se messo in un arredamento classico .Dopo averle provate delusione, non mi ha convinto il suono, non l ho trovato abbastanza potente per quello che sono costate , ne...
