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.
Okay, Corsair, you’ve gone too far. First you dabbled in Power Supplies and then Computer Cases, but this time you’ve crossed the line and provided us with reasonably priced Speakers!? Whoever would have thought that the prominent solid state memory producer would ever venture into the speaker market? Surely, I didn’t. Today we take a look at the Corsair SP2200 2.1 Speaker System; a 46Watt 2 Satellite, 1 Sub, Ball-O-Fire. Corsairs’ website proclaims that these speakers are, “Designed for gamers and media enthusiasts who want a compact 2.1 speaker system that doesn’t take a lot of space. It delivers big gaming sound in a small package.” Today at ThinkComputers we find out how true that statement actually is.
