Rosewill SP-7260 2.0 Woofer Speaker System Review

Rosewill SP-7260 2.0 Woofer Speaker System Review
Recently, I was asked to review the SP-7260 2.0 Woofer Speaker System from Rosewill. I've reviewed several speakers here and Amazon in the past but they've all been either Bluetooth or headsets. This is the first wired speaker system I've had my hands on in a long time. Boy do I miss the audio coming out of a high quality set of speakers. There is just no comparison to any built in audio or even a high end headset. These are perfect for gaming, movies, or just listening to some tunes.

First off, some quick specs:
  • 2.0 channel gaming woofer speaker system
  • 60 watts output RMS
  • 4.00” deep impact bass driver
  • 1.50” crystal clear tweeter unit
  • Individual volume, bass and treble control for fine-tuning
  • Side control panel with headphone and extra aux-in connections
  • RCA or 3.5mm connection support a wide variety of source devices
  • Dimensions: 11.3" high x 9" deep x 7.3" wide (each)
Not too shabby for under $100.

Setup of the speaker system was easy. It comes with just five wires in addition to the speakers. The first is the power cord. The second connects the two speakers together. The last three then allow you to connect to most audio producing devices like a computer or a DVD player. As long as you have a 3.5mm or RCA audio output jack, you should be all set. Once ready to use, be sure to flip the power switch on the back of the subwoofer speaker as well as adjust the volume, treble, and bass controls on the side. You'll even find a headphone jack and extra AUX-in connector on the side of the subwoofer.

From there, it is crank up the volume. With any speakers/headphones, the first thing I try out is Radioactive from Imagine Dragons. Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas is another bass heavy, pulsing song to experiment with the speakers. Since there is a separate bass controller on the speakers, you can really feel the chest pounding sounds if you turn up the bass controls.

From modern, I then went classical with Tchaikovsky and the 1812 Overture. With the cannons sounding off, you really feel like you're in the heart of a battle, which really brings us to what these speakers shine at, gaming. 

While certainly okay to limit their usage to music and movies, what Rosewill seems to be targeting with these speakers is the hard core gamer. At 60 watts RMS, you have a reasonable level of power for the home gamer who wants more than what the built in speakers offer. You can certainly pay more to get 75 or 100 watts, but 60 watts will certainly help make you feel like the center of the action in your games.

I had clear sounds coming from the speakers with no distortion no matter what I was playing. This allowed me to hear faint sounds in games coming from the distance or just subtle cups flipping in Anna Kendrick's song.

For fun, I connected these speakers to my mobile phone. Not your typical audio source for them but makes an interesting speaker phone. I also used the RCA connector to connect the speakers to my TV. If I didn't like the sound of these so much when connected to my computer, I can see them used connected directly to my TV. If you have a gaming console, you might like that setup, too.

For the price point, the sound quality you get from these speakers is hard to beat. Using a laptop so much, I do miss the sound quality coming from a wired speaker. I'll definitely keep them available and easily connectable from my laptop when they're nearby. Great gift idea for the gamer in the family, too.
