Rockus 3D 2.1 Speaker System Overview
The Rockus speaker system is made up of 3 parts, the subwoofer, satellites and control module. Let’s start with the satellites as those really set the system off. Each satellite is made of anodized aluminium and has 2.5-inch drive inside. Another thing that makes these satellites stand out is that they are cylindrical rather than the normal square or rectangular shapes we are used to seeing. This not only protect the sound of the speakers, but also makes them look damn cool!
Each speaker carries 25W of power. One thing that I immediately noticed about the satellites is that they use a honeycomb design on the front. This design really reminds me of Antec’s cases. The satellites are held up by aluminum stands, they do not offer any adjustment, but it really is not needed. At the back of the satellites you will find the connection to connect them to the subwoofer.
The subwoofer is more compact than we are used to seeing. It contains a 6-inch speaker that uses passive radiator technology. The passive radiator creates an extended low frequency response, producing deep bass from a compact subwoofer enclosure, eliminating the need for a larger, bulkier subwoofer. The subwoofer is pretty plain with a black cloth front covering and the Soundscience logo towards the bottom.
Moving around to the back of the subwoofer you have all of your connections. There are connections for the satellites, analog in which has both 3.5mm and RCA inputs, optical input, and the connector for the control module. There is also a small switch to change the bass level, there are 3 different levels. If you were wondering the subwoofer carries 100W of power.
The control module looks pretty cool and stylish as well. The top silver part can be rotated to adjust the volume and if you press down on it, it will mute the system. On one side of the control module there are 4 indicator LEDs and a button. The button will switch the system between Music and 3D mode (gaming & movies).
