It includes five surround speakers and a sub-woofer in a classic wooden cabinet, all delivering great sound to simply blow you away.

Design wise, the speakers are not so exciting bearing a heavy style metal grill with ripple design and control buttons on the front panel of the sub-woofer. There is a wooden cabinet for best bass effect. You also get a full-functional remote control with this unit. Though there are lot of wires to connect all the satellite speakers and the sub-woofers, it is not so difficult as you can easily connect all the colour coded wires in no time.

The F3000F system provides a stunning cinematic experience, and also performs flawlessly for musical journeys. The speakers are equipped with digital FM and more importantly a USB port and SD card reader. The USB slot reads a variety of your personal gadgets. The SD card reader supports MMC and MS cards too.

This 5500W PMPO system has a 3-inch full range driver for satellites and a 5.25-inch bass driver for sub-woofer.

We tested these speakers with a number of sources. The tone from the F3000F is pretty natural. The bass has power, and it can completely fill a large room with sound. The woofer has a pretty hard beat sound to it. But you might feel like you are missing some of the punch during all the high volume action scenes.

This 5.1 systems simplicity allows you to tailor your movie or music experience just the way you like it. Its high speed USB disk and smart user conveniences allow you to switch between music or video tracks seamlessly.

Overall, for a relatively lesser price you get a cinematic experience in your living room. These speakers give you a spot-on sound that is beamed across the entire room. The 5500W PMPO sound generated by these speakers rocks.
