Bij Tech-Review is een review online gezet van de Guillemot Maxi Flat Speakers 2.0. Net als veel van deze modellen wordt er helaas een slechte subwoofer meegeleverd. De twee 6 watt speakertjes blijken ook alleen goed voor een matig geluid .
Considering the Maxi FS lack of a subwoofer, the bass test didn't turn out too well. First off they are limited to a 150 Hz rating, which is way too high for good bass performance, as the low bass hits come from the 20 - 100 Hz range. The lower the Hz, the lower the sound and bass hit, so speakers sets that are rated as low as 20 Hz have the ability to produce improved bass performance. And bass is not what flat panel speakers are intended for, which is why bass in itself is completely lacking all together with the Maxi FS. Even with the inclusion of the bass control, it would not make much of a difference without it. Unfortunately, this set of speakers is in desperate need of a separate bass unit. But when considering their super low price, it is obvious that these speakers were not intended for high end use.
On the higher frequency end, the speakers put out a somewhat good quality sound, but the overall sound quality is simply not up to par with other speaker sets out there. The sound quality takes me back to the days of my $12 Labtec speakers that I bought with the original Sound Blaster sound card. The Maxi SF do however put out clear vocals, but not without a tin pan like sound to accompany them.
Overall, the sound quality of the Maxi FS is unfortunately not up to par with other speaker sets on the market. The complete lack of bass and tin like sound production just doesn't cut it in the speaker world.
