General Features

Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
56 - 20,000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
>90 dB

Good for narrowfield desktop monitors.

July 1, 2012

Great for small home recording studio. Descent value. Guess my expectations were too high. I was lookin' for a little more power;But for what I'm using them for there fine. Good sound. Just not loud enough for serious recording. You get what you pay for.

im using them right now, so far so good. quality is good and if you are really into the way your music sounds, alesis has been in the game for a while. i use these for production and i havent looked back its the best buy for those who have a mini setup at home and want to mix down your music. these things even have a little light on the right speaker to let you know its too loud so you dont blow them up (haha). but, i definately recommend buying these and buying from sonic electronics. great service and fast shipping.
