Speaker Enclosure Type
Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.

Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 66 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb "Budget" Speakers I genuinely can't fault these little beauties! They look rather stunning and sound quite awesome and,considering just how small they are,they rate as "just perfect" for my needs! With the sound reproduction,they can be used for many situations...hi-fi speakers,surround speakers,etc. But, just one <little> "downside" to their petite dimensions, is that the bass isn't really powerful enough to deliver full complimentary deeper tones to your music,etc. A subwoofer of some kind would make all the difference. But I'm not going to complain, especially at this price! If I could, I'd rate the audio quality as 4.5*...somewhere between 'good' and 'excellent'. Good all-rounders; I love 'em! 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Bargain monitors Watched these speakers for about 6 months, receiving reviews from current purchasers/users and only ever read good things. Then saw them go down to ú49. For the price, these speakers are a steal. Excellent sound for their size, look good and well put together, even comes with their own optional, wall mounting device/system, which I did not use, or need, but for them to bei included, especially at such a low price, makes them all the more impressive. A very happy customer. 18 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Perfect speakers for the job Having rediscovered my vinyls, I just wanted a set of small speakers to go with my 1970's amplifier. They work perfectly and I have been reliving my record collection. Worth every penny! 11 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Really pleased. I bought these in Jan 2016 when they were ú49. For the price I think they are fantastic. They are sturdy and well made, if a little industrial looking. I have used them as front speakers with a cheap surround sound system, and attached to my hi-fi. I am no audio expert, but to my untrained ears they sound great, particularly when connected to the TV, replacing the small Sony speakers that I previously used. When used with the hi-fi the sound was clear, and plenty load enough. Given the size, the bass was obviously a little lacking, but more than good enough for me. The service received in branch (Bristol) was good as always. Overall I am very happy with my purchase. 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby The classic installation speaker The Control 1 remains a classic installation monitor. Fairly flat response, with reasonable bass reach for their size, makes them a serviceable studio monitor as well. With wall mounts included, they are unbeatable at this price. 07 January 2016
