Design flawed volume control!

May 22, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Good subwoofer bass response. Reasonable cost.

Cons:Volume control failed within two months.

The Bottom Line: Purchasing this speaker system should be done at a local merchant with a service warranty. This additional cost should be taken into consideration when value-comparing against other, more reliable speakers.


This speaker system would be a good value if it weren't for the design flaw with the volume control. Post-purchase research revealed this is problematic with this speaker line. They are currently available at brick-and-mortar stores for less than $55. Unfortunately, I purchased them via a mail-order company, so I had to return them to the manufacturer for warranty repair/replacement. I would only recommend purchasing these speakers if they are offered at a discount, and then done locally with a service warranty enabling a convenient return policy.
This speaker system has good bass and adequate midrange response. Set up is easy, but wiring connections preclude substituting other manufacturers' speakers with this product. The satellite speakers have a small, stable footprint and are easily placed. The volume control on the satellite speakers does not allow for separate control of the right and left speakers. It does allow for on and off switching from a single control, but the switching is not convenient and must be visually confirmed. The subwoofer volume control is not readily accessible.
