    [font=verdana, arial, helvetica]Are these speakers from cambridge soundworks any good?

    They're MicroWorks II Amplified Multimedia/Computer speakers

    They cost $150...

    I have a nice set but I want a better subwoofer...

    "The MicroWorks II is a versatile, three-piece amplified speaker system composed of two small satellite speakers and a compact subwoofer. The system provides a total system RMS power of 80 Watts (20 x 2 satellite, 40 subwoofer).

    The MicroWorks II features a compact yet sophisticated fifth-order, downward-firing subwoofer. A 6 1/2" active driver rigidly mounted in the center of the subwoofer enclosure pressurizes an 8" radiator at the base of the enclosure. The 8" bass radiator features a 1" wide butyl rubber edge surround for distortion-free, high-level bass output down to 45 Hz.

    The new MC40 satellite drivers feature a central phase compensator for evenly spread high-frequency output, along with magnetic shielding. The asymmetrically curved satellite cabinets all but eliminate distortion-causing reflections known as "standing waves."

    The satellites and sub combine to create lifelike music and video sound. The sonic accuracy is evident at all output levels, making the MicroWorks II useful in a wide range of typical home applications. The MicroWorks II is reproduces superb music and movie sound in small home theater environment, or produces "thunderous output while fragging unwanted invaders in the latest PC or video game.

    The system has two signal inputs (Main and Auxiliary). The system is supplied with desktop stands for the satellites and a wired remote volume control (including headphone jack).
    Features:

    * Active 6 1/2" bass driver, 8" bass radiator
    * 80 Watts RMS system power
    * Subwoofer Level control
    * Headphone jack
    * Two stereo analog inputs
    * Subwoofer Dimensions: 11 1/8" H x 10" W x 10 3/4" D, including cables
    * Satellite Dimensions:
    4 1/2" H x 4 3/8" W x 4 7/8" D (w/o stand)
    6 1/4" x 4 3/8" x 5 5/8" (with stand)
    * System weight: 15 lbs"

    if you ask if something is good or not, then I'm going to say yes or no. I am not here to write a book for some dumbass that can't go to a fucking store and listen to them and decide if he likes them... If you want my opinion, you'll get it.

    you're an asshole.

    but he's right. they are going to sound like crap. cambridge soundworks is notoriously poor quality. the bass will be weak to non-existant. won't be able to get much volume without distortion. the quality of the cones is sub-par. the amp/crossover is poorly constructed.

    save your money up for a low-end home theater system. an 80 watt 2.1 set of speakers just won't have enough power to give you proper bass or clearn mid-ranges.

    If everyone is going to give yes or no answers without reason especially from you, why the hell is this forum here??

    People post here asking for help and some recommendations on things and are more likely looking for more than a yes or no answer. Why did you even bother to post in this thread if you have nothing to say?
