Image for Little But Loud

I recently bought a new laptop. I take it to work with me so that we can listen to internet radio from Hawaii. I hooked up the laptop and turned the volume all the way up. It was hard hear the music coming from the speakers. Laptops don't have the best speakers because you will be sitting right in front of the laptop when you normally are using it so they aren't designed to be loud. In our case we needed additional speakers.

The man who connected our high speed internet suggested that we try Walmart. He said Walmart would most definitely have the best price. He told us to be aware that some speakers would need batteries. We didn't want to be buying alot of batteries since we will be using the speakers daily. So after work we headed for Walmart.

In the electronic's department, the salesman showed us the shelf with speakers of all kinds. We wanted something small but mighty. I found this Durabrand set of speakers for only $10.00. At that price I was skeptical of the quality of the product. I took the speakers out of the box so I could understand exactly how they were going to connect to my laptop.

It was simple! You only have to connect one cord to the USB port and the other cord to the speaker outlet.No batteries are needed and no power cord. That's it! The side of one of the speakers has an on/off button. You can also control the volume on the side of the speaker too. We took it to work the next day and turned the volume all the way up on the laptop and on the speakers. WHAT? I can't hear you!!! The speakers are too loud now!

Problem solved! These little speakers are stylish and powerful. We can move them to face in different directions so that we can hear the music in any part of our restaurant.

Now that I have told you that....here's the specs of the speaker system:

Total Power Output: 2.4 watts (1.2 watts x 2)

Speaker: 3" 4 Ohm Full Range Driver

Magnetically Shielded

Frequency Response: 120Hz - 20KHz

MAC and PC Compatible

Flat Ergonomic Design

All I know is that for $10.00, we got a big bang for the buck!
