Corsair SP2500 2.1 Speaker System and HS1A Headset

11 thumbs up

Inside the Corsair SP2500 box, users will find a large subwoofer, a pair of satellites, two small stands to help angle the satellite speakers up or down depending on their location, a control pod, and all if the necessary wiring to get the speaker system connected and running.


Corsair SP2500 Fouth-Order Bandpass Subwoofer

Because the Corsair SP2500 2.1 speaker system uses a standard analog connection to a PC’s sound card or integrated audio controller, installing the system couldn’t be an easier. A single 3.5mm stereo to dual RCA cable plugs into the PC’s output and then into the left and right channel inputs on the subwoofer. Then the satellites need to be connected to the sub along with the control pod, and then the sub needs to be plugged into power (obviously).


A View Of The Back Of The Right Satellite Speaker

The cables for the satellite speaks have four-pin, keyed connectors on each end, so they can only be installed one way, i.e. the correct way. The cables are color coded as well, to designate the left and right channels. Simply plug in the cables to their color matched receptacles, place them properly on your desk and the satellites are set up.


The Corsair SP2500 Control Pod

The control pod is similarly easy to install. The pod features a thick cable with a DB15 connector on one end. Simply screw it into the port on the back of the subwoofer and that’s it. The cable is 6 feet long, but we should note that a standard VGA extension cable can be used to extend it if the need arises.

With everything connected and powered up, the final step to configuring the Corsair SP2500 2.1 channel speaker system is telling Windows that you’re using a 2.1 channel speaker system. Any games you play will also need to be set to 2.1 channels or stereo output to ensure no details are lost.

Noticed an ongoing error.

3” 16 watt midrange and a 1” 40W ferrofluid-cooled silk diaphragm tweeter

40 watt midrange class-D amplifier and 16 watt tweeter class-D amplifier

Which way is it? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the 3" midrange should be 40W, with the 1" tweeter at 16W

Yup. Will Fix. Corsair's actually got the specs wrong on their site and I just carried over the mistake. :)

Thanks for the article I have been eyeing these and wondered how they perform. I have the HS1 Headset and I love it. I recently bought some speakers but I am not completely happy with them so these are tempting.

I will like to pick up a new headset as mines is about to give any day now... :D. I would love to get the speakers too but i was looking for a 5.1 system, i will just have to deal with my monitor's built in speaker and my head set for now. Logitech should have some old controllers laying around!!!!! My controller for the speaker broke and the whole thing is basically useless :(

Man, it seems like stereo sound will be rocking until the day sound days, and we have implants implanted that allow us to feel sound in every way possible.

Tell me about it, the subwoofer for my X-530 is blown to high-heaven, surely Logitech has some subwoofers lying around for my poor 5.1 sound system...

I had the same issue with the controller on my Logitech ZX 560's. In my case I was able to take it apart and found the issue to be a loose wire.

Anyway I really like the look of these Corsair speakers.

I'm pretty sure Logitech sells spare parts for thier speaker system. I know they do it for some gaming mice.

Not for products that are not in manufacture any more, that's according to their customer support. :(

These speakers look great. Clean Lines and not a lot of unnecessary flash & bling to them. They are a tad on the expensive side, but are probably worth the money.

I need a new controller for one of my older 2.1 speaker systems too. It's a Microsoft Sound System II. When it works, it's amazing to hear.

I also have two pair sets of JBL 2.1 Creature-II's that sound great too.

Bandpass boxes tend to be HUGE... and this subwoofer looks to be no exception to that. lol

Got any dimensions on that bad boy?

Nevermind, found them!
