IMG Reviews The JBL Creatures
12:33 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review of the JBL Creature, Harman Multimedia's latest 2.1 speaker system for the Macintosh. It's a reasonably priced sound peripheral that hopes to win the hearts and minds of Mac gamers of all stripes with its attractive industrial design and solid audio performance.

Here's a clip from the review:

The JBL Creature is a 2.1 speaker system. In layman's terms, this means that there are two satellite speakers for high and midrange frequency sound, with a subwoofer added to reproduce the low end bass effects. This speaker configuration is easily the most common for Mac users, and the Harman/Kardon Sound Sticks, Apple Pro Speaker/iSub combination and the Monsoon PlanarMedia 9 are just a few examples of comparable systems.

With the main drivers coming in at a small 2-inches high and the subwoofer topping out at 8-inches, these speakers may be Creatures in name but they are anything but monstrous in size. Luckily for Mac gamers, these speakers have more than enough power to deliver killer sound. The two left and right channel satellite speakers pump out a total of 8-watts of audio power in a package that can easily fit into the palm of your hand. The 24-watt subwoofer fills out the sound but does not overpower the smaller satellites.
