The Corsair SP2500 2.1 Speakers arrive in a box which can only be described as gargantuan.
Inside, the speakers are well protected, wedged between some thick, heavy duty slabs of cardboard.
The bundle is extensive, with all the necessary cables for connection between computer and speakers and subwoofer and satellites. Corsair also supply a well written manual, control pod, power cable and angled satellite stands.
The talking point is surely the subwoofer. This measures 46 cm x 26 cm x 30 cm and is built from MDF. It houses a whopping 8 inch driver which is rated to 120W RMS. This subwoofer really is massive and demands most of the space inside the box when shipped. It is extremely well built and feels as if it could withstand some serious abuse.
There is a reason why the subwoofer cabinet is so large however, the driver is a 4th order band pass subwoofer design so it can produce a deep, focused lower range free from distortions and levelling, which is often a problem with smaller implementations.
The back of the subwoofer is were all the action happens. This means the front is very clean and free from clutter. The rear has connections for both satellite speakers, colour coded to ensure an easy fitting. There is also a VGA style connector for the remote control. Underneath are fittings for aux input and phono style inputs.
