PRODUCT COMPOSITION & SETUP (cont'd)
How does it look when it is properly setup?
Now, if you do not have the means or space to wall mount the rear speakers, set your speakers up as shown above for optimal enjoyment of surround sound.
CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
Now it seems that I am being a little hard on Hercules(r) in this review, and this is not my intention. Hercules in my mind stands for quality, and this system is not a bad introduction for them into the 5.1 speaker system genre. If you are in the market for a reasonably priced base level system to get you enjoying your new soundcard, by all means, you will NOT go wrong with this setup. Now on the other hand, if you are familiar with a decent sound system and are an audiophile like myself, maybe you should look into a more expensive speaker set. If Hercules(r) does not take this review the wrong way and actually uses my constructive criticism in a positive manner and incorporates my ideas into their new model year, I think we will see a vast improvement and a much better system next year.
- Well built
- Excellent bass response
- Very reasonably priced
- Ability to hang the speakers on the wall or use the included stands.
- Poor satellite speaker sound (hollow)
- PC connection cables should be colour coordinated for easier setup.
