A couple of weeks ago when Bob was unboxing the Corsair SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System he made mention of how large they were. I really did not think that much of it until I went to pick up the speakers up from Bob’s place I thought he was having me review a 21 inch CRT monitor. The box is that huge. Most of the time people can claim that a 2.1 system is small enough to be semi-portable. This system, by definition is the exact opposite. Heavy and Huge. I was excited to get these boys home to hook up and play with them. Lets see what that play session yielded.
Below you will see the unboxing video. If you haven’t seen it check it out. I’ll admit, even though I’m a writer for ThinkComputers I take an interest in all of the new video’s. I think it’s something that site has been missing for some time.
Before I talk about performance lets go over the packaging. Corsair sets the standard when it comes to packaging. The box is huge, we’ve already established that, but it’s for good reason. The speaker system is huge, yes that’s probably the main reason, but they also gave adequate room for all the cables, manuals, and controllers. The packaging is also designed so it’s quite easy to box back up if you need to transport the speakers. The only issue is finding a place to store the box in the mean time. The box is has all the information you could desire, but honestly who reads the boxes now a days. We just go to sites like Think Computers if we really want to know something about a piece of hardware.
After we take everything out of the AMAZING packaging we have a couple things in front of us:
- Satellite Speakers
- Desktop controller
- ATX4 cables for connecting the Satellites to the Sub
- RCA to RCA audio cable
- 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable
- Power Cord
