Product Description

Desktop speaker system ideal for MP3 music
With its stylish design and quality performance, the Creative Inspire T3130 is the perfect choice when you want to take a step up from ordinary speakers.

Creative's Image Focusing Plate features a flare surrounding the satellite driver to improve sonic directivity and imaging to the listening area
Creative's Image Focusing Plate
improves sonic directivity

This 2.1 speaker system features the Creative Image Focusing Plate (IFP) design which improves sonic directivity and imaging while preserving tonal accuracy. You can also fine-tune your audio preferences by accessing the wired remote control and bass control easily on the subwoofer. Conveniently connect these sleek speakers to your PC, notebook or MP3 player, and experience great audio immediately! For everyday music listening at an amazing value, the Inspire T3130 is your ideal companion.

Creative Image Focusing Plate design
The system's Creative IFP (Image Focusing Plate) design features a flare surrounding the satellite driver to improve sonic directivity and imaging to the listening area, giving music more focus while preserving tonal accuracy. With the IFP incorporated in the speakers' satellites, it results in improved acoustic throw to the listening area while preserving tonal balance and accuracy.

Imagine yourself increasing the volume of your voice by cupping your hands around your mouth - the tone of your voice changes versus pre-cupping. Hence, although you improve the loudness and directivity to your intended audience, the tonal balance of your voice changes. However, with the IFP, there is a "gentle flare" around the driver, improving its efficiency and directivity without affecting the tonal balance.

Powerful subwoofer
Feel clean, explosive bass from the subwoofer, thanks to its large flared port tube design. Defying its size, at only 213mm x 160mm x 227mm (H x W x D) and 2.7 kilograms, the subwoofer will really help to bring your music and movies to life. You can even set your desired bass level simply by adjusting the volume knob located on the subwoofer itself.

Wired remote control

Magnetically-shielded speakers
Place these magnetically-shielded speakers anywhere you want, even near notebooks or LCD/CRT monitors, as they wouldn't cause any image distortion or interference. Their small footprint also optimises space on your desktop, reducing unnecessary clutter. They are perfectly suited to also work as a speaker system for your MP3 player. Each speaker is 150mm x 75mm x 90mm (H x W x D) and weighs 355 grams

I wanted some new speakers for laptop, as my inhouse speakers were starting to fade and crackle. I was originally going to settle on the Logitech x210 speakers which my friend has and which I really liked. As all friends do, I wanted to get one better than his. After looking at the logitech brands the z323 and z523 were said to be very poor and for the price, not worth it. With my student budget the better Logitech ones were way out of my price range.
The Logitech Z205 was also another choice, but I rarely take my laptop anywhere so that was out of the question. Also the Z205 was said to be very poor when you increase the volume.
After an hour of trawling through various review sites I settled for the Creative speakers. For their price and specifications they were really good. I only needed speakers for my room, not to destroy the house with them.
After ordering them they came the next day via First class royal mail which was surprising! After unboxing them the setup was really easy. All you had to do was plug in the bass box to the mains, plug in the speaker cable to the bass box and then plug in the jack lead into any device: laptop headphone socket, iPod, zen, even walkman!
Anther nifty little feature is that it has a little volume control which you can place anywhere. The cable lengths arn't too stingy as well and will easily reach from the back of a Pc to the front.
The bass box itself also has a bass volume and it does NOT dissapoint! For it's size and price it really packs a punch and with the bass volume turned up and the volume on low, you can feel the bass pumping out.
when I tested it to its limits, (bass max, volume max) there is hardly any distortion at all and it also makes the floor rumble which is quite epic.

I bought this to improve the sound of my Samsung HDTV in the bedroom. Not only was it amazingly good value (£36?), when I play CDs in it it really puts my very very good iPod docking station to shame. I can't recommend highly enough.

When this product arrived, i was amazed at the way amazon had packaged it, even if i threw it out of a moving car, i doubt it would have damaged the product.

The set up is simple and easy, and once i had it hooked up, i was amazed with the sound quality.
Even when connected to my old, broken mp3 player, it still pumped out crisp sound

just make sure that you dont crank the bass up too much if you have pictures on your wall, lmao.

I bought a 24 inch screen tv from M & S and was extremely disappointed with the sound quality. On studying the TV the only outlet it had was a 3.5 mm headphone jack. After some investigations I was advised by Maplins to try these speakers but was given a wink that they would be cheaper if I bought them via Amazon. Well to my utter amazement after taking delivery of the extremely well packed speakers and their easy to connect speaker system the TV was transformed from a coacoa tin on a bit of string to a truely dynamic. unbelieveably stupendous sound system. It is so good I am considering buying another one for my larger TV in my main sitting room. All the favourable write ups about these speakers are understated but other than 5 stars what else to say?

I couldn't be more pleased with the product, and the sound quality easily matches what you would get on a more expensive system. I wanted something that I could get the bass out of my music, but watch TV programmes and movies with good vocal quality. With the bass volume control on the back of the powerful sub-woofer it's easy to do this, and is everything I wanted out of the speakers.

Especially because of the price, this is an excellent product and well worth the money.

UPDATE 2: This review was written a long time ago now, and while the speakers haven't degraded much at all, upon receiving new speakers, I noticed how bad the bottoming out was.

Old first impressions review:

I didn't know if i should buy these speakers, but now i am glad i did.

They look briliant, they were easy to set up, and the sound quality was better than my friends £500 bose speakers, the bass is incredible, all for under £50.

I would say they are best for drum and bass, but all other audio is very clear and just as good.

A few complains are I will say is the outer material cover is quite delicate, not too much of a problem, but my main complaint is about the bass range. These speakers frequently bottom out when turned up loud on high bass songs, and sometimes even at a low volume.

I made this review 9 months ago now, and i would have to say, that after this time, these speakers have retained their quality, they are still in nearly perfect condition sound wise.

I bought the Creative Inspire T3130 speaker system for my wife to use, after our Creative I-Trigue system of nearly three years,developed a fault.
These speakers are used with our PC and are brilliant.The base has a good deep sound to it, and as it sits inside our wood computer unit, you gain the full effect.
My wife is a heavy metal fan,her favourite group being X-Japan as she is Japanese.You can hear the sound clearly, without switching it to full volume,which would definitely shake the house.The speakers are small,sturdy,and compact.The system is easy to assemble,taking about five minutes to install.For the price, looks, and sound, this system is a "must get." Well pleased.

As for the service..."second to none."I ordered this speaker system on Sunday evening 19th of December, expecting to receive the item possibly around the 29th December.Especially due to the date of the order,and the really bad weather.In fact the estimated delivery was quoted between the 23d to 29th of December.While speaking to my wife on the telephone at 10.00am on the morning of Wednesday the 22nd of December, the speaker system was being delivered to our door."How's that for service."
