Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Logitech X-540 5.1 Speaker System
Surround yourself with the sound of victory

Take your game to the next level with surround sound so rich and detailed, you can hear your enemies before they hear you. With this 5.1 surround sound system on your side, you'll hear every footstep and where the bullets are flying from. Frequency Directed Dual Driver satellite speakers and a thundering subwoofer create a three-dimensional soundstage that envelops you and immerses you in the action. From crisp clean highs to deep thumping bass, this is everything you need to go from playing the game to feeling like you're actually in it.

Key Features

Logitech FDD2 Conventional Dual Driver Design
Uniform, smooth response Uneven response

5.1 surround sound for an intensified game and movie experience
Immerse yourself in the action with richly detailed and accurately reproduced 5.1 surround sound. High-performance satellite speakers use Frequency Directed Dual Drivers (FDD2) to eliminate uneven frequency response—the sound distortion that occurs when some frequencies are artificially louder or softer than they were meant to be. The result?  A smooth and uniform field of surround sound throughout the room, without the dead zones and hot spots sometimes created by conventional dual driver satellites.


Matrix mode transforms classic games from stereo to surround sound
Your favorite old games are about to take a giant leap in sound quality. Choose the Matrix Mode and the speaker system instantly converts 2-channel stereo to realistic 5.1 surround sound. The difference in audio detail is so dramatic, it's like hearing your classic stereo games, movies and music for the first time.  

Ported down-firing subwoofer gives you deeper, booming bass
Enjoy deep, rich bass as its booming best. By facing the ported subwoofer down instead of straight ahead, bass is directed evenly throughout the room. Extra-deep rumbles and explosions make your games and movies more intense. Feel free to crank up the volume. Thanks to real-time bass equalization, you get clean, rich bass without distortion—even at volumes you can feel.

Control pod with headphone jack puts sound control at your fingertips
With the corded control pod, all your controls are at hand—power, master volume, bass level, even Matrix Mode. So it's easy to adjust sound in the heat of battle. And when you want to keep the game all to yourself, there's a headset jack for private listening.

Versatile mounts let you customize your setup
Setup your speaker system however you want to fit your listening environment. You can place the center channel speaker below your monitor. Or, to free up desk space, use the integrated clip to easily attach the speaker onto the top of your flat-panel display. You can also setup your four satellite speakers on a desk or mount them on the wall. Simply rotate the stands to switch from desktop to wall-mounted.

    I am very happy with these speakers.

    I replaced a cheap 2.1 set of speakers, and this sub-woofer is much better sounding than what I had before. Of course you could get even better sound by spending a lot more money, but I believe these are a very good value.

    Remember you might need to reconfigure Windows and/or your BIOS and/or your Sound Card for a 5.1 speaker setup. When you are properly setup, you do NOT need to turn on the "Matrix" feature. That is only needed when you connect it to a simple stereo source like a video game console. Your computer will "upgrade" your stereo music to a 5.1 signal when configured correctly, so like I said, you can leave the Matrix button turned off when connected to your computer.

    The only negative, as others have shared, is the CABLES ARE SHORT. Add $15 to the price to include a trip to Radio Shack for some RCA extension cables.

    I am stilling giving this a 5-start rating, since I knew about the cable length issue before I bought it.

    Verified Purchase
    Since there are lots of comments about the lead lengths, maybe some data would help (why is it not in the official specs?). Here are the approximate lengths that came with mine:
    Power input cord: 6ft 6in (to sub)
    Wired remote: 5ft 6in (from sub)
    Audio input: 6ft 2in (Three 3.5mm male stereo jack plugs on each end; green (front); black (rear); orange (center+sub)
    Center speaker: 7ft 2in
    Front speakers: 5ft 3in
    Rear speakers: 14ft 2in
    There is also an 8in adapter with a green stereo socket on one end, red and white female RCAs on the other (for use with a video game console).
    If you only have a single stereo output to feed these speakers you will only get sound out of the two fronts and the sub, unless you select matrix. Personally I find the matrix mode artificial sounding and hard to listen to, but it seems a waste to only use two of the five speakers so I piggy-backed two one-to-two stereo adapters to make three outputs and plugged in the green, black and orange input plugs (somebody suggested a Radio Shack Boostaroo, but I think that requires batteries - I get plenty of output with the passive one-to-three split). The rear speakers can then be placed alongside the front speakers and the center speaker puts out the sum of the two stereo channels. This gives a very acceptable sound when plugged into the headphone output of the TV and volume can be set with the TV remote. This sound is very much better than the sound from the TV speakers. After going through the experimentation to arrive at this setup I am very happy with this purchase.

    This little puppy rocks!! After adjusting the volume settings on 3 remotes and devices (Yes, I am very picky), well, let's just say that I have to keep the volume down. After listening to this system hooked up to my TV for just 1 hour, I turned the system off (for testing the audible difference), and found that I could Never go back to my TV only speakers. WOW is the word! This is great for "Gadget Freaks" like myself who just want to start small and inexpensive. If you have RCA Audio Out L/R (Red & White - You will also need an AV Cable both ends male to run from included adapter to TV) jacks on your TV, this system comes with the necessary adapter to hook it up to your TV. It took me a total of 3 minutes to set it up. A Breeze! Get 'em and see what kind of set up you can come up with. Yes, I know these are PC speakers, but for what I am doing I needed them to be compatible with my TV as well.

    Update 12/24/2011! >>> See an update to my original post at the bottom of this review!!! <<<

    I've had these speakers for about three months now and they have the potential to be and sound amazing, however for one reason or another, they just aren't and don't.

    The first annoying thing is the length of the satellite speaker cables. NONE of them are really long enough for their intended uses. The front left/right speakers only have about 6 feet of cable. If you put the sub woofer on the floor to the right or left of your desk, there isn't enough cable to run to the farthest left/right speaker. I had to purchase extension cables to make this work. The rear right and left speakers have much longer cables, but even these are only about 15 feet long. Again, if you place the sub woofer on the floor to one side of your desk, 15 feet isn't long enough to run back around a desk, then to some point behind the operator. These should be at least 25 feet long. Again, I had to use an extension cable to make the furthest rear speaker reach where I needed it.

    When I first installed them, I felt like they didn't have as full a sound as my previous stereo speakers, but I chalked that up to the difference between a three speaker (two desktop, one sub woofer) system and this one. They sounded kind of "airy" and light, but some adjustments to my computer sound settings remedied most of that complaint. Now most of the time they're fairly clear, but very often any bass notes will cause distortion in the front right/left speakers. This is something I only noticed with extremely loud volumes in other speaker systems I've owned. At low volumes on music with no bass they sound great though....with one tiny exception...
