Hercules XPS510 5.1 Speaker System Review - Hercules XPS510 - Page 2

With all their success in the audio market, Hercules has recently decided to introduce their new range of speakers. These were named the XPS510, XPS210 and XPS200, with XPS standing for eXtended Personal Sound. We were able to obtain Hercules' high-end, yet low priced speaker system, the XPS 510. At first we were very critical about the performance of this system due to it's low cost, however, as you will see when you read on, first impressions do not always last.

Taking A Closer Look

 

- Satellite Speakers

 

The five satellite speakers are very versatile. You are able to place them with or without a stand, and there is a convenient hole in the back that allows you to hang them from the wall. They each feature a 3" driver with a 180Hz - 20KHz frequency response and are rated at 8 watts RMS each. Like most satellite speakers, they are quite small, measuring 92mm(W) x 100mm(H) x 92mm(D).
