We take a look at the Corsair SP2200's are they as good as their big brother?

I could do with some new speakers and was half tempted by these until I read about the bass, I like to have the perfect balance between mids and bass but too much of either does my ears in.

They look good, but personally I reckon it would be worth spending the extra for the 2500 edition.

For now, I'm still rocking some Cambridge Audio SBS52's

I'll just stick with my headphones for now. They have a good mix of bass and the rest of the sound.

I have a set of these, and I totally agree with Bryan on this. Anything above 10 - 11 o'clock is too much bass. I think the best is probably within the 8 - 10 o'clock depending on the audio source you're listening to. The sound quality is still really good, although the midrange is being produced by the bass. If you turn up the bass too much it will get overpowered and the sound becomes really muddy.

I tested it without a sound card, connected to a PC, and then directly to a media player. It will definitely be enough for a small room, and especially enough if you're going to use it for general home theatre use. Turning the dial over 12 o'clock max would definitely be a big NO. While watching movies and music, I couldn't hear any distortion at max volumes; if there is, it's really minimal.

For the price, I think it's actually a good purchase for those who want to replace existing 2.1 systems or upgrade from an inexpensive 2.0 speaker set.

4 years ago a brought a set of JBL spots from pc world ex-display ones. cost me £22. and they still sell them now for £80. I was going to get the phillips AMBX setup. But i heard most games arnt compatible with them anyway. I am just to scared to pay out for a set of speakers if they are not going to provide me with anysound better than the JBL spots. without spending an absolute fortune. I guess if they arnt broke dont replace them lol.
