Best Speakers in the Universe


Buy them when you can, cuz when they're gone they are hard to find.

Deep bass and theater quality sound is provided by enclosures that were actually designed properly for the aerodynamics of the speakers! These are the best speakers you will ever find, I'm going to buy 2 more before they're gone

They are hard to find, buy them when you can. They are easy to blow out if you mishandle them. Don't max out your outputs completely, Provide approximately 30% output from your source and use the speakers to amplify to prevent this issue

Great Sound


These speakers sound great for the price. Hookup was a piece of cake. I would recommend this deal to anyone

Dealing with a rebate. They are always a pain


Consumer review by:

At $20 it is a steal


can use longer cables, i like the fact it can connect to virtually anything. using for a home theater system.

cheap, powerful, relatively good sound

None for the price

I purchased these in Feb 2014. Did all the rebate process meticulously to the T. Even have proof of mailing from the Post Office. So far no rebate check in the Mail. It has been 5 months now. dedicated customer since 2006. To Whom would I...

Good speakers. No Complaints. Just do not play them at high volumes for long periods

None. Heavy, very, very heavy and built like an Army Tank

Worked great for me!


Like I said, I'm pretty sure these things have been sitting around for a while but if you got the 50 bucks its worth the risk. I feel like I hit the lottery when I listen to these things sometimes, lol. Its a GREAT deal if it works:)

These speakers sound amazing, the base is what you would expect from a medium quality 10 inch sub or a very high quality 8 inch sub, idk how the heck they get so much power out of this 6 incher, but IT HITS HARD man. This thing can shake all 3 of the...

These can be a bit tricky to set up to your computer because they dont use only one plug to connect, they use two. One for the rear speakers and one for the front speakers. Problem is you have to figure out what goes where, it took me about 30 minutes...

Wasted hard earned money on this. Don't do the same.


Unit failed with exact same problem reported on internet search of equipment. Technology level of this equipment is maybe early to late 1990’s it’s really junk out of production from company that made them. Warrantee requires buyer to pay shipping back...

Good Deal


Others have complained about receiving DOA items. The item I received worked great and at $50 I was glad I took a chance on it. In fact i am ordering another set at the same great price.

Very low price. Loud. Good sound quality. Low price

Short cords

Great system you will be amazed! I actually brag about the price point to people listening to them.

Price! Got them for $14.99 ; I just bought these because they were cheap and had good reviews. I did not expect to receive what I actually received. The box is full color! Easy to set up. Came with lots of cable options. The sound is on par with entry...

Maybe a bit too simple. No bass or treble levels just one "tone" knob but it does what it needs to do. Cables are a little short for the rears but hey this is actually a desktop system not a home theater

The Price Was Right


These speakers really harken back to a set my college roommate had that could quite literally shake the building (Z5500). The sheer volume and potential bass of that set was unbelievable, these are fairly similarly powerful without some of the other...

They worked, maybe I'm just lucky ; They sound better than ANY computer audio system I've heard short of the $250+ price range ; Even at that price range these things might still take the cake for volume. At half volume these things will make your ears...

If I had to pick a con, which is silly for this price, I would have to say it is a bit of a trick between the various dials to get the sound balanced the way I like it. The subwoofer has its own volume dial which to say the least is on the floor, while...

a few duds in every batch


I bought 2 sets of these because they would be $15 after rebate. Turns out these things were made in 2002. As an audiophile these sets are great. But I would not pay over $40 for them. My first set worked great but the 2nd set I ordered was defective....

good bass, many provided cords, only $15 after rebate and free shipping. provides good clear sound only if you have a sound card to use with it, otherwise you get highly distorted sound when you turn this baby up

made in 2002 ; loud hiss and extremely loud volume when you turn it. very thin cords (one small tear and the set is ruined)
