Review: Cerwin-Vega XD3 speakers offer big, but unbalanced, sound


Cerwin-Vega's XD3 speaker system won't earn any accolades for balanced audio, but that may not be what you're looking for.

Inexpensive ; Decent stereo separation

Unimpressive sound ; Limited connectivity

For a hundred bucks, it’s tough to find great sound, and I’ve heard similarly sized desktop speakers at this price that sound far worse. So your purchasing decision comes down to money and the type of speakers you’re looking for. If you’re on a tight...

Cerwin-Vega! XD3 Powered Desktop Speaker Review


It's not very often that I get to use and enjoy a review item while working on the actual review, but that's exactly what I'm doing as I sit here listening to my favorite music. The new Cerwin-Vega! XD3 Powered Desktop Speakers have been designed to...

Cerwin Vega XD3 Powered Desktop Speakers Review and Ratings


Old-school, straight-stereo audio never sounded so good on the PC desktop as with these hard-hitting powered speakers. They pack subwoofery sound into two compact satellites.

Two-piece speaker set with three-piece punch ; No subwoofer required ; Wood enclosures with brick-like build quality

On/off switch is on rear of the left satellite, rather than front ; Left (master) satellite runs very hot

Our only significant concern with the XD3's performance wasn't with the sound—it was with heat. The left satellite is the one that connects to your audio source, as well as the AC power; the right one is merely tethered. The amplifier electronics are...

Cerwin-Vega XD3 Desktop Speakers


With over 50 years of speaker system know-how for concerts, movies, public address and clubs, Cerwin-Vega has been around the block. When creating the XD3 speaker for desktop and computer applications the goal is to optimize the sound output while...

Overall, Cerwin-Vega has one of the better sounding 2.0 desktop speakers we have heard in the XD3. Installation took a little longer than most 2 speaker setups, but the results were well worth the extra time! The aesthetics of the XD3 were nice and fit...

Powerful desktop speakers


Cerwin Vega does not disappoint with the small size desktop speakers. They deliver a deep bass sound and the power will not disappoint.

these speakers sound cheap.....


I was very excited to try out these speakers. They felt heavy and solid in my hands and they looked awesome. I wish I could say the same for their performance. If you are ok with cheap sound, these are the ones for you. I spent $90 on a pair of...

Great speaker for desktop!


I bought this item for my desktop. Sound/bass quality is great for the price. The only complaint is that the audio cable is too short.

The perfect powered bookshelf speakers


I was looking for a small pair of speakers to go with the turntable I recently purchased. I did not have an amplifier so I needed something that was self powered. The sound quality is amazing for speakers in this price range. Icky Thump by the White...

The best powered bookshelf speakers on the market


I purchased the speakers to pair with a turntable that I recently purchased so I could give vinyl a try. Since I do not have an amplifier in my office, I wanted something that was self powered so I wouldn't need an extra component to listen to records....
