What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Micca MB42 Bookshelf Speakers With 4-Inch Carbon Fiber Woofer and Silk Dome Tweeter
  • They are light weight enough to wall mount and handle the power of my receiver.
  • The speaker has a little weight to it. Looks great , too
  • Simple to hang, light weight, easy to hook up and good sound
  • The speakers are kinda light weight wise, but it makes quite a bit of sound and bass for its size and weight
  • These Micca speakers are very light weight and have a very budget feel to them
Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2-Inch 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair
  • The build quality is okay: It's light weight, the terminals are plastic, and the overall look is decent (dated) and not offensive.
  • They are pretty light weight as far as the cabinets go, which, for 50W max speakers isn't really much of an issue.
  • They weight about 5.5 pound each.
  • I like the compact, bookshelf size, the clean look of the speaker cover and most importantly the specs given in the product description

What customers say about "Audio"
Micca MB42 Bookshelf Speakers With 4-Inch Carbon Fiber Woofer and Silk Dome Tweeter
  • The speakers sounded a bit tinny, but I adjusted the levels and they sound so full and beautiful. My friends come over to watch movies and they can't BELIEVE how amazing they sound coming out of these small speakers.
  • Sound quality is definitely a step above the logitech speakers I was using before. They can fill up my entire apartment with music at fairly normal volume levels, haven't been testing much above that.
  • Good bass response even without a sub woofer
  • These speakers have an excellent balanced sound with good highs, pronounced mid-range, and decent low end for their size. Vocals sound natural and music sounds full and spacious
  • Not perfect sound quality (though good enough for the price), I found that using my ODAC actually produced a worse sound through these than my motherboard's onboard as the realtek dac seemed to fit the sound signature of these speakers.
  • A big drawback is that they have significant and annoying audible amplifier hiss while powered on.
Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2-Inch 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair
  • They have a decent frequency range and good sound for such an inexpensive set of speakers.
  • The sound is clear across all frequencies
  • Absolutely great mids, a frequency range neglected all too often
  • Good bass, smooth transition into the mid and high frequency range. I didn't expect this level of sound quality and volume from such an inexpensive pair of speakers
  • I was a little disappointed with the bass from these. it's very quiet and resonant at certain frequencies
  • I found the bass to be underrepresented when using this set, a separate subwoofer would flesh out the system nicely, but I would have preferred full range with this single set.
