Wavemaster MX3+ 2.1 Speaker System Review
Peter Donnell / 8 years ago
The MX 3+ comes complete with a separate sub woofer, two satellite speakers, wired controller, 3.5mm audio cable and a 3.5mm to AUX adaptor that can be used when connection to devices such as a games console, TV or DVD/Bluray player. Not exactly a lot in terms of extras but when it comes to an all in one audio solution, there isn’t really anything else you need to get the system up and running.
The subwoofer is made of glued MDF and since its fitted with a 13cm driver, it’s still heavy for a compact subwoofer. A touch of silver plastic trim around the driver port adds a little touch of style and the extended trim around the bass port gives the front of the sub a very modern and stylish appearance that shouldn’t look out-of-place next to your desk or home entertainment system.
Around the back of the subwoofer we find the main I/O panel, this features a bass level control, line in, controller connection and the left/right speaker outputs. Further down the unit you will find the master power switch and hard-wired mains power cable.
The satellite speakers are really nicely designed, much better than I was expecting for a set of budget speakers. Featuring a separate driver and tweeter, good quality removable covers and overall a very clean-looking construction.
Around the back you can see that the speakers are hard-wired, which is pretty common for an all-in-one solution. A welcome addition is the support for wall mounting the speakers.
The wired controller is really well designed and made, a large control dial on the top allows you to toggle from standby mode and control the overall volume of the speakers, while a pair of 3.5mm jack plugs allow for headphone and line in connections.
