Good product for the price

 

Well worth the money for a small room. would not consider this for a room over 200sq ft. Alot of bang for the buck though.

I recently had to down size and sold a nice klipsch system. My room was 12x14 and to small for anything to large. I purchased this system and was very pleased with the quality of the sound. Easy to set up and good crisp sound

Proprietary plugs make changing speaker tough. Sub woofer can not be adjusted at all, however for a small room the base is OK. Not alot of ways to adjust the sound period, pretty much all pre-set
