PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Let's look at each piece separately, starting with the subwoofer. It is a fairly large enclosure with an LCD on the front and some volume controls below it. The subwoofer itself has a side-firing 5.25” driver. The enclosure on both the subwoofer and the satellites are made of wood.
A closer look at the front controls shows a menu button in the center surrounded by a reset, mute, and volume up and down buttons. Pretty straightforward stuff.
The back of the subwoofer is where you'll find all the necessary input and output connections. There is also a hardwired power cable and an on/off switch.
On the bottom of the subwoofer enclosure are four pads for extra stability. Each satellite speaker has these pads on the bottom too.
Now it's time to move on to the satellite speakers. Each one has two 3” midrange drivers and a 1” tweeter. As a result of having two midrange drivers, they are taller than most 2.1 satellite speakers.
Uh-oh. This is the part where I'm wishing that Eagle Tech would have included covers over the midrange drivers and tweeters. One of the tweeters was already crushed in when I pulled it out of the box. Ouch.
