Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II 2.0 Multimedia Speaker System with BasXPort Technology
Rich Audio Performance with Improved Bass
GigaWorks T40 Series II propels audio enjoyment into the next level of acoustic fidelity. The 3-Driver audiophile configuration, with BasXPort technology delivers excellent dynamics with rich extended bass, eliminating the need for a subwoofer. The silk dome tweeter with dual woven glass fiber drivers produces crystal clear highs with full range audio, letting you enjoy a wider soundstage experience when you game or watch movies.
Quality Materials Make for Better Sound
The midrange speakers are constructed with woven glass cones for durability and longevity. You get tight, accurate sound, including rich, low tones produced by the integrated BasXPort technology. Each cloth dome tweeter delivers clear highs without being too sharp.
Front Controls and Ports for Easy Access
An array of controls are within easy reach, with front-mounted treble, bass, and volume knobs. Add any MP3 or CD player to the T40 Series II Speakers through the auxiliary input, or connect your headphones when you need to keep outside noise to a minimum.
You can even connect the speaker system to your TV or gaming console and enjoy solid audio entertainment.
Intelligent Power-Saving Feature
These speakers are designed to save energy! When audio isn't being played, the speakers will automatically go into a power-saving standby mode after approximately 10 minutes. And when you want the music back up, they will intelligently wake themselves from standby as soon as they detect audio playback.

<EDIT> The review below is 3 years old now, and it still stands, but here is an update.
For some reason the bass now sounds better. My best guess would be that through use (cone excursion) possibly the glue loosened up, an the cones are traveling much truer than they were when I got them, or at least it sounds that way. IOW, a break-in period. Kind of a long one, they didn't really sound better until after a year or so.
But I made another improvement, which is I connected a subwoofer I had laying around. I had put this off because I could not find a practical way to do this, but I found a box that works as a crossover from Rolls (SX45, about $90) that made this work pretty well. I roll the Creatives off at 150 Hz, and the sub back in at 150 Hz, and it sounds much, much better, because now the Creatives are not trying to do all of that work in the lower octaves that they are probably too small to do efficiently.
As I originally stated, sub-200 Hz is where the Creatives fall down, while above 200 Hz they sound really good. But the combination of this and the sub really works well. The Creatives by themselves sound OK when the volume is low, but now I can listen at a reasonable level and still get good bass response. <END EDIT>
The box says "Premium, home theatre sound with booming bass". If you qualify that, it is exactly correct. And here's what I mean by "qualify": The word "premium" applies if you are comparing this system to conventional computer speaker systems (it is the best I've come across in that regard).Read more ›
Creative Labs Gigaworks Series II T40
You may read reviews about how these speakers recuscitate hind parts when it comes to bass. I just got mine delivered today and purchased them sight unheard. After a month of research, I narrowed my focus to the M-Audio Studiophile AV40 ($200), Creative Labs GigaWorks Series II T40 ($140) (important to note Series II due to minor desirable enhancements), Creative Labs Gigaworks Series II T20 ($90), Bose Companion 2 ($90) and a Dayton Audio ($150) solution featuring Class T amp (50 watts/channel), 6.5" Bookshelfs and left the door open for a matching 80 watt 8" sub ($100).
I am using a Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium HD (THX) sound card. I will be listening to my music library on iTunes and general gaming.
Speakers that handled the entire vocal range and highs very nicely. Imaging was important. Only being 24 inches away from the speakers, I need to feel the vocals hitting my face and not my chest. Speakers need space and direction to achieve imaging. Remember, your head is on TOP of your shoulders, ;). An inheritent design problem with most pc speakers. You don't lay your head on the desk to use your PC. Yet most pc speakers are flat on the base and sit on your desk, pointing right into your chest.
Stereo sound (2.0), fit and finish, build quality, vocal sound quality, imaging, sound controls and design simplicity.
I had listened to the Bose Companion 2. For $90 they seem worth every penny.Read more ›
Cons: Size isn't for everyone. No remote. Not having a separate subwoofer may be a dealbreaker for some.
I recently moved into a studio apartment and I can't afford a massive sound system. Like many people I rely upon my laptop as pretty much my sole source of entertainment but was growing tired of using headphones and my valiant, but tiny Altec speakers on my HP laptop.
Looking through Amazon.com, NewEgg.com, and Cnet.com was definitely an exercise in frustration. In fact, it took me two months of trolling through those sites and my local Best Buy before I gambled on these. I finally settled on the T40 because both the T20 and T40 have garnered solid reviews. Are they perfect? No, but neither are most reviewers. But generally no one had horror studies to tell (ahem, JBL, ahem) and the only complaints seemed anal-retentive. A sale price of 99.00 on Amazon.com was also perfect and the lack of a subwoofer was a plus. Finally, I've owned a few Creative products in the past...MP3 players, etc...remember soundblaster? And while they were often on the fringe of the mainstream, they have always been solid and never poorly made.
I want to break this review into several parts based on how I went about choosing these speakers:
1. Looks: with a sophisticated design and piano-black exterior, these speakers are very fancy looking. On my black lacquer Ikea desk, they look outstanding. Of course, like a shiny black BMW, they do require weekly dusting but I find it to be worth it (buy a Swifter). You will get nice comments from your friends, trust me.Read more ›
