If you need a inexpensive home theater PC speakers MS40 are fun. Their mids and highs are sweet e the mid-bass line is satisfatory. Those ones who intend to listen to MP3 and watch movies on PCs will enjoy MS40.

On other hand, if you need a reference monitor for recordings, forget it! No way! MS40 is quite uneven, lacks resolution and clarity on mid band and its treble has absolutely no resolution. Bass lines isn't good enough also, because of its lack of control and velocity (they are boomy speakers). Their quite apparent boxiness also let MS40 down.

Looking for a entry level reference monitor? I would recommend to spend a bit more and get KRK Rockit RP5G2 or a M-Audio BX5A. They cost twice as much, but sound 4 times better. You can't afford any of them as your budget is short, so go with M-Audio AV30 or AV40. In my opinion, even the chep M-Audio AV20 offers better mid and treble resolution than behringer MS40.

These are excellent amplified speakers, with great fidelity for their size and unusual flexibility to accept both analog and digital inputs. The exposed and delicate woofers, however, had me worried. I searched the web for speaker grills that had four mounting holes to match those of the MS40 (screw holes exactly 4 15/16" across from each other). I hit paydirt in my search, have just finished installing the grills and have uploaded a photo to show how they look installed. These grills are Item 260-420 from Parts Express. They come singly, so buy two. These are a perfect fit in size and color for the MS40. Mounting these grills takes about 5-10 minutes per woofer, requires no drillling or modification to the MS40 and is reversible. In my opinion, there is no effect on sound quality. Cost with shipping is about 18 bucks for two grills. Lastly, I have no affiliation with Parts Express.

Brief How-To: Place one of the enclosures on its back and remove the four screws with a 3mm hex driver. Lift off the plastic ring. Save the ring and four screws if you want to restore to original later. Mount the circular grill bracket using the four screws that came with the grill kit. Put the included steel clips on the screws to act as spacers against the rim of the woofer, aligning them to conform to the rim without extending over the woofer cone. Carefully screw the mounting bracket onto the screw holes in the MS40 enclosure, alternating between screws until the bracket is flush with the enclosure - don't overtighten the screws. Push the circular grill onto the bracket -it goes on easily and can be removed for cleaning when needed. Repeat the process for the second enclosure. Enjoy.

I bought these Behringer MS40 speakers from amazon a few weeks ago, and had the exact same problem as some other reviewers, right speaker would make loud rattle sound when low frequency sound or bass is on. After I researched this problem online, it seems this is quite a common problem with the MS40, one reviewer even exchanged and got the same problem with the 2nd set of MS40. I didn't really want to ship the stupid thing back to amazon unless I have to. So I opened up the right speaker, trying to find what's causing the rattling. It seems to me that it is the untied cable that is causing the rattling, there are two loose cables (one thick, one thin), directly behind the sub-woofer, and comes loose by default. So I duct taped these cables securely to the internal wall of the speaker, making sure they will not touch the sub-woofer at all, then I put everything back, tested it with a heavy bass, and the rattling is gone.

Other than the rattling problem, the speaker sounds nice. But Behringer really should've taken care of the rattling problem at the factory, this problem has existed for over 3 years, and still these speakers being shipped today still comes with this problem. I am disappoint. I will probably not buy a Behringer speaker again in the future.

These Behringer MS40's are rockin' my apartment big time. I have had plenty of speakers in my day, but these are the best combination of size and sound. I still find myself thinking "where's the sub at" on occasion when enjoying these speakers, because the low end sounds beautiful. I remember when you would have had to of placed tower speakers sporting 10" cones or had a sub cabinet to get this sound. Best part is that the mid range and highs sound GREAT too!! With about 8-10 feet of seperation between the speakers the imaging is right on. When I watch movies with them you get what they intended to mix. Dialogue is centered, cars sweep across the room, and explosions rock the walls. I listen to quite a bit of music and enjoy various styles. It really doesn't matter what the genre because the end result is always excellent. My only advice would be to make sure that you are not to close to the speaker when listening. I originally place them about 3' from each end of my couch and realized that the "sweet spot" was my kitchen...I switched their placement to the opposite end of the room and have sounded great ever since. Seriously well balanced speakers...not like they are the best, but I have not found any better for the price. Something else that makes them awesome is the input section. I have my computer running through one input, my tv/dvd through another and sometimes friends will drop by and we plug their ipod straight into another input...two volume controls allow me to adjust the computer and tv/dvd seperatly. These speakers are SWEET for the Price!!!
