Enhance the sound quality of your game console, computer, stereo, and more.
These speakers have more than just good looks; they were built to produce a rich sound with enough presence to fill any room. Each satellite speaker has an audiophile-quality driver surrounded by a stylish chrome trim ring.
The subwoofer features three individual drivers and the type of deep bass you'd expect from a much larger unit. Stick it anywhere in the room to feel the explosions in your soundtracks or the drumbeats and bass riffs in your music.
Control and Connections at Your Fingertips
Volume is controlled from a stand-alone pod, so you can choose where it goes for convenience and easy access. The pod also has an integrated auxiliary input--no more crawling around behind your equipment to find a place to plug in your MP3 player. The large, easy-grip dial lets you set the perfect volume level, and you can easily plug your headphones into the built-in jack for private listening.
When you're not enjoying the GigaWorks T3, the system's power-save mode consumes far less energy than a standard speaker system. Each GigaWorks T3 satellite speaker measures 3.7 x 5.9 x 3 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 0.8 pounds. The subwoofer measures 9.3 x 8.4 x 11.3 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 13 pounds.

I had a Creative I-Trigue set up that had lasted me about 5 years, until the subwoofer blew out (don't know whether this was on Creative's end or on my own). I decided I wanted a new system with deeper bass, full range of tonality, and that got a little louder. The bass on this system is certain better, but the sound range may honestly have been better on the $120 I-Trigue system. To compare, the I-Trigue system had two satellite speakers, each of which had 2 1-inch drivers for highs, and two 1.5 drivers on the side for mid-range, and a subwoofer.
- Small footprint satellite speakers
- Volume dial has a good feel to it, headphone jack and aux input very convenient
- Solid bass... it goes fairly deep, definitely enough to shake the room
- The sound has I think gotten better over time, but that could just be entirely subjective
- Bass control is only on the back of the subwoofer... my old system had a separate control for bass on the volume dial, which was real convenient
- Midrange may be lacking a bit as others have mentioned, but highs are solid. You can more or less correct this with an equalizer pretty easily (e.g. iTunes), but I still feel like there is something lacking after transitioning to one-driver satellites.Read more ›
I've plugged them in side by side to have a listen and really am not that impressed with them.
The subwoofer is more 'boomy' and doesn't give a good representation of bass guitar. The speakers look nicer sure, but my old ones gave a warmer and smoother sound.
When listening at the quietish volumes I usually have, you basically only hear the kick drum and some bass guitar briefly, you have to turn the level of the bass up then the kick drum is too loud and all this time you have to get down on your knees to adjust the bass level as there is no adjustment for that on the remote.
The volume control squeaks sometimes when turning the volume up.
All in all, wish I had saved the money and bought a new monitor or something instead. Maybe if it was 1/2 price or even 3/4 the price I wouldn't be as disappointed, but these are not good value for money on the sound quality side.
I went to one of the local computer stores, and spent some time listening to quite a variety of 2.1 speaker sets (don't have the space or interest for the 5+ speaker sets). The creative labs gigaworks speakers really impressed me. The footprint for both the subwoofer and stereo pair was fairly small, but the sound produced was extremely full. I'm amazed at how far the speaker technology has come since I last looked at computer speakers. Here's my subjective list of pros/cons:
* Sound/clarity. I'm not sure how to quantify this, but they do sound wonderful. I would urge anyone considering spending this much money on speakers to actually hear them before buying, as what I think sounds great may not be to your taste. But for me these really satisfy my sound palette.
* Footprint: I don't have a ton of space to work with, and these were fairly compact.
* The volume control. There is a rotary dial volume control that is very easy to use/intuitive. I love digital, but I confess I like the old "analog style" rotary volume control. Place this near your "mouse hand", and it's easy to adjust volume very quickly for any inbound phone calls, etc. And if you turn the volume all the way down, the amp will cut off altogether.
* Headphone/auxiliary jack. This is placed on the rotary dial I mentioned above.Read more ›
There is nothing wrong with the speakers - pretty nice sound actually. However, after using it for over a year, the contact points in the volume control pod gathers dust and causes a myriad of problems. Contact customer support, and they tell you that they do not have any replacement parts. If you are past the 1 year warranty, all they give you is a 10% off coupon code to buy a new pair of speakers. Honestly, why would I want to buy a new pair when it's just gonna break down after another year?
Many people have written online that they have the same exact problem, so unless you're willing to spend $200+ on a pair of speakers that's not going to work after a year, I would not recommend this product.

There is only 1 active driver in the sub, the other two are passive radiators (they work like a port), but they are not anything like an active powered driver. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Erin
