Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing upgrade from PC speakers I was looking to upgrade from my Creative desktop speakers, and came across this pair of active monitors. They sound absolutely amazing! A direct upgrade from PC speakers! The highs are very clean whilst keeping the bass punchy without distortion even at high volumes. If you're looking to upgrade to active monitors I highly recommend this pair!

can these speakers be connected direct to a stereo system and used as normal speakers

Asked by: al h
With the right connections , the speakers use an XLR connection so you would require the correct adapter that fits your stereo.

do these speakers come in pairs?

Asked by: ricky

I can see that each speaker requires one IEC cable each for power. Would the speakers still function the same with one IEC cable pluged in and split into two using a IEC splitter (male ends to the speakers)?

Unfortunately i am sorry but the item in question doesn't support use in you intended application.
