Top Customer Reviews
They're a little bigger than I was expecting, but still manageable. A nice little surprise is that they came with some pre-trimmed speaker wire, which helped me get set up instantly. I did go back and run my own wire after fussing with placement, but I appreciated the touch. There's a keyhole on the back, and I just put some screws into studs and hung them off that. Simple, no-nonsense upgrade that makes gym time a lot more enjoyable.
See attached photos for one wall of my gym with a speaker and another of my AV panel.
There was evidently a time period where the manufacturer messed these up, but that has clearly passed as I was very impressed with the sound I am getting out of these little guys. I did run them for several hours at a fairly high volume to sort of break them in, and there was definite improvement after this, but even out of the box I found them to be quite acceptable.
Seriously, as sub-$50 speakers go, there's really nothing worth deducting a star over. They are pretty light weight as far as the cabinets go, which, for 50W max speakers isn't really much of an issue. One of the name plates on the covers was applied slightly crooked. That is basically it as far as "defects" go.
I'd say buy these with confidence.
The build quality is mediocre. There was a bit of glue on the surrounds, but nothing serious. The covers are a bit stiff, but that's better than them falling off.
As many of you looking at this know, these speakers are the budget champs. The sound quality is very good for such a cheap pair of speakers. The low end is a bit missing, and the highs are kind of shrill, but you likely won't find anything better at this price any time soon.
These are great home theater speakers. They can handle getting very loud, and if you pair them with a subwoofer they sound pretty damn good. I wouldn't recommend these for a desktop setup though, they are a bit large for that, and they aren't the best for near-field listening (go with the Miccas for that)!
Speakers sound better without grill
The amplifier you use also makes a large difference in the quality of sound you can get out of these.
Polyfill, and remove the grills and they do alright I think
I'm glad I took the time to read forums and get these instead of paying for overpriced BOSE...which are much smaller but, I have the space.
If you need small these are not for your desk.
Packaging was great. Comes with small audio wires, could upgrade to a little bigger gauge. I'm using what came with the speakers and I'm happy
