Corsair entered the speaker markets with two models - SP2200 and SP2500. We already reviewed the SP2200 model, and while it was a good competitor at the popular $100 price range, we found ourselves wanting a bit more. Now Corsair was kind enough to also send us the current top model SP2500's. This set is priced at around $250 and clearly aimed at people who are more demanding on their speakers and also want to listen to high quality sounds on their computers.

Straight from the size of the box it's easy to tell the SP2500 sits in a whole another league than the SP2200 we saw earlier. Weight is usually a good sign when talking about speakers, and at 17 kg the set really isn't featherweight. Inside the box everything is very well padded to prevent shipping damage.
Looking at the specifications, also the SP2500 is a 2.1 set with two satellite speakers, but this time both satellites pack two drivers. The combined frequency response of the satellites and the 8" subwoofer is 35 Hz - 20 kHz and the amplifier power 232 watts. The feature list includes a separate controller with a 1,8" color screen, three inputs, headphone output and various DSP and EQ settings.
The bundle contains the usual set of manual and warranty information, but there's also a remote controller and plenty of cables available. For the satellite speakers there are color-coded cables, power cord and 3,5 mm - 3,5 mm and 2*RCA - 2*RCA cables for input. There are also a couple of plastic parts designed to rise or lower the satellite speakers according to the installation.
