This is what the SW-G2.1 1250 is banking on, the subwoofer. You can see the thick MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) Genius used for this subwoofer. Inside there is a 5.25″ drive unit that helps produce the deep, rich bass that you will want while gaming, watching movies and listening to music. It comes with rubber feet to help keep it in place which is helpful if you decide to put this on your desk or another surface other than carpet. The feet will also help keep the vibration and rattling sound to a minimum if it is on a hard surface.
The individual control box is nice looking with the high gloss finish on the front, along with the red accent in the middle. On the front, you will have the volume and bass knobs, as well as the easily accessible headset and microphone jacks. On the back of the control box, you will find all the connections for your two satellite speakers and the incoming connections from the device of your choosing. You will also notice the microphone connection in the top right for all the people who have stand alone microphones. The bottom of the controller comes with rubber feet, which is also to help keep it from sliding around and scratching your surface, especially if you move it a lot.
The satellite speakers have a great look to them with the high gloss red and black paint job. The 3″ cones are magnetically-shielded and hopefully they will live up to the hype and produce full mid-range and well-balanced sound. On the back, each speaker is marked left and right, as well as their jack being color coordinated with the control box, so it makes it difficult not to install them correctly. Above the “R” and “L,” depending on which satellite speaker you have, you will have a built in hole to enable you to hang the speakers on a wall, if you would like.
