The Xenta 303 2.1 channel Subwoofer speaker System is a rather small set of speakers by Xenta yet again. Aiming to fill a room with high quality sound and bass, this system comes packed with 2 speakers and a subwoofer to vibrate the room as well as your eardrums. Since the other products I have looked at featured more in the way of mobile devices that you could take and place anywhere this is a bit of a switch in direction.
This system is one of the more attractive looking designs I’ve seen for speakers in a while, going for a sleek black and orange colour scheme as well as a smooth material case. The only roughness to this system are the undersides to allow these speakers to stay upright and tight, due to the stands the vibrations from the subwoofer can easily transfer to the floor. There are small writings here and there to tell you the brand and how to use the volume controls, which blend in nicely with the overall look of the system.
The two speakers are just bigger than your hand, but fit into each palm allowing for easy transport, but the problem lies more with how you transport the subwoofer. You can stack the speakers onto the subwoofer and carry them together, but this can lead to some careful walking as you don’t want to drop them. The short cable lengths also don’t allow much in the way of transport or distance between the separate parts.
The power and sound input plugs/cables are way too short in my opinion, leaving you with very little options on where to place this system. You will either have to connect this to a plug near your computer or a plug in the house, which isn’t always where you want it to be. Relying on the plug and not USB or multi-format power options really limits your choices in where you want the party to start.
Since this is a system that uses the mains for power you can be sure it packs a punch, at near full volume it does. I have no worries that the speaker set will deliver to a party or house that wants loud and high quality tunes. With over-the-top volume you’d think the quality would take a hit, but this isn’t the case as most sound that comes from the speaker is clear with a little bass boost behind music tracks. Quality changes depending on where you place the speakers, which isn’t that varied as the cables don’t allow much in the way of movement.
The sub-woofer itself isn’t too powerful at low volumes, especially if it’s for personal use and not for an audience. As the volume gets louder so does the effect of the sub-woofer, but you’d be better off with a dedicated or separate cable sub-woofer if you want a system with big beats and vibrations. Due to the cables all linking together into 1 universal one it can be a bit hard to set up the system to get the best quality out of it, considering PC’s sometimes need additional programs to handle 2.1 systems with single cables.
Overall Thoughts and Feelings
Overall I give the Xenta 303 2.1 channel Subwoofer speaker System a 4/5, it is a great cheap system that should supply almost anyone with their music needs, be it for pumping up your own gaming music and tracks or for hosting a party and playing tunes to a crowd. The slick design is more attractive than most as well as the small build allowing you to fit these speakers just about anywhere. The cable length does hinder where you can sit the system, either from the plug in a wall or to the device you’re connecting to for music.
