With the SP2500, Corsair has reinvented the PC speaker system. Get ready to experience a revolution.
The Gaming Audio Series SP2500 is the product of a design philosophy that embraces the importance of clean, detailed audio reproduction -- not just for games, but for movies and music as well. Building a great PC speaker system is more than about giving you room-shaking power. You also need optimal imaging and positional accuracy, and sonic depth and detail. Since you have only one speaker system, you don't want to make compromises. That's why we've created the SP2500.
The smartest speaker system you've ever met. The digital signal processor and dynamic digital crossovers provide sophisticated processing and equalization effects for a listening experience that simply can't be matched on ordinary analog speaker systems. Enjoy late night gaming or movies without disturbing others, adjust your listening experience for your favorite gaming, film and music genres, and choose from custom listening environments. The power is yours.
The beauty of bi-amplification, and more. Each two-way satellite has discrete digital amplifiers for both the specially developed 3" midrange driver and the custom-designed 1" ferrofluid-cooled, silk dome tweeter for accurate reproduction. You'll enjoy pristine audio that's clean and tight, even when pushed to the limits. You'll also experience stereo imaging that's nothing short of amazing, creating a compelling experience that's as close as possible to how the recording engineer or the game designer intended.
You're in control. We've designed the Gaming Audio Series SP2500 to be a flexible and capable audio hub that will give you years of performance through multiple PC upgrades. You get a PC input, two additional audio inputs (perfect for a gaming console and your MP3 or network music player), and a headphone connector that lets you tap into the incredible digital processing power even when you're listening in private. Master them all with the desktop controller. The 1.8" (4.6cm) color TFT display looks great, day or night (and even includes a night mode color scheme). You can use the intuitive menu system to:
- Enable Mod X™ theatrical audio processing for Blu-Ray and DVD audio that recreates the theater experience
- Select dynamic DSP programs like Late Night, which uses the power of active digital crossovers to redirect bass tones to the satellites
- Choose custom-designed EQ curves for sophisticated environment simulation and optimal enjoyment of game, music and movie genres
What the Experts are Saying...
"The Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-power 2.1PC Speaker System is exceptional and we have absolutely no reservations about recommending these. Assembly was extremely easy, the speakers look great, and performed well in all of our tests. Corsair makes excellent, innovative products and its SP2500 speakers are another reason why the company deserves your hard earned dollar." –
-HardOCP January 11, 2011
"All in all, Corsair's splash into the PC speaker market has been a success in our view. The SP2500 is a ridiculously powerful desktop buddy, one that won't let you down if you decide you want to drown your entire apartment building in block-rocking beats. Construction and components are up to Corsair's typically skyscraping standards, which is also why these speakers come with a significant premium." –
-Engadget January 5, 2011
"When the Corsair SP2500 2.1 PC speaker system showed up in the test lab we hooked it up and were shocked to hear our music. We were able to hear details in the audio that we weren't able to make out on our old speaker system. The satellite speakers on the SP2500 are amazing and the midrange audio is crystal clear. Most audiophiles talk about sound separation and having bass that overpowers vocals and we finally get what they were talking about. The Corsair SP2500 might 'just' be a 2.1 speaker system, but they fill a room with crystal clear audio that is worth every penny of it. The Corsair SP2500's are worth it. You truly need to hear these to believe it. The Corsair SP2500's are worth it. You truly need to hear these to believe it."

Build Quality: Excellent. The subwoofer is made of sturdy wood and weighs a ton. The satellites are a perfect balance of hefty quality plastic and being too light. It has a total of three inputs which is nice. The desktop controller allows you to switch between them all. The free rca and pc cables are a thoughtful touch.
Sound Quality: Excellent. Its amazing how clear and how 3D this 2.1 setup seems. I've been playing Bioshock 2 and the little sisters singing are awesome. In Halo Reach I can hear where the enemy is. Music has great clarity as well as punchiness. My wife's favorite part is the late night setting shifts the base from the subwoofer to the satellites.
Price: 260 is what I paid (with shipping), but that was the week they came out. If they were closer to 215 this would be on everyone's desk. Ultimately, I'd buy them again in a heartbeat.
I've now had my SP2500 for approximately a week, giving me ample time to test them out with a variety of music genres and inputs. I listen to classical music, hip hop, electronic, and some alternative rock. It handles all these with amazing detail and clarity. The bass is deep and powerful, but not overbearing in the slightest, thanks to each individual speaker getting its own amplifier. The SP2500 also retains clarity at 100% volume, which is extraordinarily loud (I like my music loud overall, and it even had me flinching). I generally like to keep it around 70% to 80% when I want to play loud, and it's enough to fill my house without hurting my ears.
This system comes with an 8" side-firing subwoofer, and the thing is absolutely gigantic. Looking at pictures of it online will not prepare you. It's not a problem for me, but if you are severely constrained with your space, it's definitely something to consider. It also has two satellites, each with a 3" driver to carry the midrange and a 1" tweeter to sustain the highs. A fantastic thing about these speakers is that every frequency stays where it should be at any volume level. For example, on many computer speakers/iPod docks, the bass becomes disproportionately lower as the volume goes down overall. Not with these.
I don't play PC games, but I do play my 360. Hooking these up and playing Halo Reach was amazing. When a grenade went off near me, I didn't just hear it, I felt it. And even though this is a 2.1 system, direction was still easy to pinpoint.Read more ›
The box is huge, but so is the subwoofer. There is indeed a LOT of packaging, but everything is nicely organized and can be put back non-destructively. I plan on using the same box and packaging for any future moves.
I consider myself an audio junkie. There is simply no need to spend $200 on an audio system if you don't love or have a need for great audio. I am just the opposite, and this system seems to be able to deliver. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect.
One thing buyers need to know is that the subwoofer does not work like a subwoofer attached to a home theater system. It is not separate. The back of the sub if "command central" for all the connections. The sub will increase in bass the louder you turn up the volume. You can't have lots of bass and low volume, that's not the way this system is designed to work. If you turn the bass up as high as it can go, and say perhaps turn the volume up to around 50%, then you will be blown away.
I hear sounds in my music that I hadn't heard before, all because my satellites now have tweeters that are actually doing their job. The voice quality is outstanding. you will hear a nice full sound from these speakers.
One thing that is a bit of set back - no digital optical connection. I understand these are computer speakers, and will mainly have 3.5mm audio jacks. But for the 220 watts and huge sub included...having a digital connection would have just put icing on the cake.
Also, the EQ and PROGRAM options are a little corny. I don't particularly care for them. I suppose if you just want to feel like you're in a different environment...Read more ›
Unfortunately, I have to give them one star on account of Corsair's RMA policies. Unlike other manufacturers, Corsair does not cover return shipping for RMAs. My speaker system failed under warranty and I had to send it back to Corsair at my expense. This is a heavy system. The cheapest available shipping option was UPS ground and it cost me $40. I asked Corsair to send me a pre-paid return label and they declined to do so, saying, "We do not pay for shipping."
