What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Harman/Kardon Soundsticks II 3-Piece Plug and Play Multimedia Speaker System
  • The sound is adequate for the size, price and design of the speakers.
  • Sound truly remarkable with deep bass (for size and price point), great mid and high range, and smart appearance.
  • For the price, size, and sound quality, these speakers are fantastic!
  • If you're considering these speakers, you probably want good sound, a small footprint, and a good price.
  • The only negative I've noticed is that since the sub-woofer is small, you have to place it fairly close to the middle of the satellite speakers.
Bose Companion 3 Series II 2.1 Computer System
  • The two small speakers on stands taking small space on desk. And also the stands can be easily removed.
  • The two speakers are incredibly small, as Bose products usually are.
  • As I wanted a small speaker set I've got this two tiny footprints.
  • The subwoofer is relatively compact and easily fits under a desk.
  • The weird thing, however, is that the subwoofer is absolutely enormous. It is, in fact, too deep for my shelf on my desk.

  • For an office or computer desk where you don't want to clutter the space these 2.1 system are the bomb!
  • Just hang the speakers on each push pin and your done. Easily adjustable for sound and separation.
  • I am not a fan of 5.1 systems so i wanted a good basic 2.1 stereo speaker system and these speakers were the best choice.
