Does anyone know how these speakers are? I may have a chance to get them half price.


Thanks.

decent thats all i have to say is decent. better than no speakers. they aren't loud but at the same time they are better than most built-in speakers.

I know they're not going to be incredible, but I'm just assuming that they will be louder and have more bass than the macbook's piece of **** speakers.

Half price for a brand new item can't be bad either...

for the money the logitech's are hard to beat, the quality isnt that great, but they work well for desktop speakers.

I just bought some, I forget the model now, but they are 5.1 but without the built in decoder... I have them plugged into my airport express for air-tunes action.

the subwoofer is under my desk, I have it turned the WHOLE way down, no kidding, it's boomy, even at it's very lowest level, I find it still too boomy, perhaps I should move the sub somewhere else.

It's obvious they are targetting gaming and techno weenies that love the 'boom'.

I had the top of the line ones a few years ago.. the Z680's or something? Out of the box the subwoofer had a rattle in it, it went back, the next set also had a rattle. in the end i was in the shop i bought them from, going through every set they had on the floor, testing them, every set had a rattle in the sub, I got a refund.

But yer, for the money you spend, they work well for some regular listening, etc.

All the Logitech setups seem to suffer from too much woof. Try stuffing a rag or some foam into the tube to damp it a little.
