You get what you pay for. They are alot better than the speakers attached to your monitor. The cords are plenty long so you can place them almost anywhere on your desk. I recommend keeping the sub on the desk for better sound. Very clear sat. speakers and do produce good volume and sound. I have no complaints for under 15 bucks.
The only way to get true dramatic bass performance is with a system that incorporates a subwoofer. This three piece subwoofer, speaker system offers solid audio performance with slim styling, convenient finger tip controls and cloth grills that adds elegance to your desktop. You won't believe the performance from your PC, CD, MP3 players and other devices when connected to this affordable system.
