Telex EV SonicXS Speaker 2.1 System

For anyone that has seen Back to the Future, there is a scene at the beginning of the film where Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) plugs his guitar into a kickin set of speakers and plays one chord on his guitar. Basically that s all he can get out of the speakers, and since he set every dial on max, he was literally blown off his feet in a hilarious stunt.

Imagine speakers with that much power on your desktop for your PC. It s enough to excite anyone, and it s more than enough to cause dread to those living with the buyer. However, I believe that the computer industry has found the perfect set of speakers The Telex EV SonicXS series. Telex is definitely not the new kid on the block, with 75 years of concert audio experience in every set.

As a matter of fact, the big brother s of these speakers are on tour with the Rolling Stones this summer.

Shielded Satellites

To keep it simple, you ll be hearing a lot more sound (and cranking out a lot more power) than you would if you went to Walmart and got a cheap pair of speakers to plug into your PC. Since these awesome speakers are magnetically shielded, you can put them next to your monitor if you like, and there won t be any interference. They are nice and loud, yet at the same time there is a clear, crisp sound to it as well.

It isn t like some other speakers where you crank the volume and everything becomes distorted with these speakers, you can crank everything up, and it still sounds good.


These babies are massive. After managing to heft everything out of the box (they are rather heavy) and getting things set up (which took a total of 5 minutes, tops) is a breeze. Everything on the back of the subwoofer is color coordinated, so even an imbecile could hook these things up without any problem.

After getting everything into position, I was ready for some serious gaming. Although, first, I loaded up a few MP3s to see how things sound. The Chemical Brother s remix of Magic Carpet Ride never sounded so better.

Listen to the song and imagine this before the music plays; BOOM ..BOOM BOOM .BOOM .BOOM . and then the song starts playing.

Now, how go games like Grand Theft Auto 3 sound like on this speaker set? So many good words to use, yet so little space to use them in. Everything sounds phenomenal. When being chased by a load of cops in GTA3, my family looked outside to see where how many state police cars were going by.

Well, there were none going by, but, hey, people thought there were state police cars going by.

Heck, even games like Nocturne had the spook-factor increased by these speakers. Imagine zombies all around you, their feet shuffling against the ground and their low moaning. Now, imagine that with bass cranked, and a great set of speakers. That s enough to give anybody the heebie-jeebies.

As a matter of fact, after playing Nocturne at night with these suckers on, I could barely get to sleep for fear that things that go bump in the night were going to come after me.

One of the things that really impressed me was I m now hearing stuff in games I ve never heard before. For example, I ve played Medal of Honor: Allied Assault using two different sets of speakers, such as the ones that came with my computer … and until I plugged in these little darlings, there was some stuff I never heard before. For example, where I picked up a lot of new comments from NPCs was in the D-Day level.

As the landing craft are going to shore, behind me I can hear a guy praying in Latin. The first thing I said was, Hey! I never heard that guy before! As the boats got nearer to shore, I could hear a lot of other random comments being made from the troops in the boat with me.

When the boat stopped and the ramps were about to be lowered, one of the guys nearest the landing ramp said; Sweet Jesus .. then it was all over.

If you crank these speakers, don t be surprised if the local/state/federal cops show up at your doorstep wondering what the Hell is going on. I cranked these things up, closed all the doors and windows, went outside and I could still clearly hear everything (of course nobody was home at the time either, these things have a high annoyance factor to those that hate bass). These speakers are so loud that a Surgeon General s warning needs to be placed on the box.

Something like, “Surgeon General s Warning: Listening to these speakers at excessively loud levels can cause permanent hearing damage.” Hey, it’d probably be a heck of a selling point!

Let s do a quick comparison to other speaker sets as well. When I was on a recent trip for college, and my roommate at the time had a nice speaker set for his stereo. One day, just for fun, we cranked everything on the speakers, a few minutes later, a C/T (counselor/tutor) came down the hall and yelled at us.

He said we were making the front desk vibrate. The speaker set he had was three years old. I cranked everything on the Telex speakers (after that comment for those crappy speakers we were both … to see what these badboys could do) and I went down cellar and the pipes were vibrating, totes were shaking.

After that test, I turned everything off and when I did, the family cat emerged from behind my parent s bed because he thought there was a thunderstorm brewing.

When it comes to getting good speakers, most people want to get surround-sound systems. Unfortunately, where most computers are placed (i.e. living rooms, bedrooms, or small dens), there isn t enough room to hook up a surround-sound system. These speakers are the best solution to that problem. I myself was thinking of taking my old speaker set and hooking them into my computer and seeing if I could make some sort of surround-system. That plan back-fired.

The Telex speakers are so powerful and I swear I am not making this up, to even hear any sound from my old speakers, I had to crank those all the way up and turn the Telex speakers to one notch above minimum. The speakers are perfect for hooking up just about anywhere.

Value and Usefulness

At $199 things just don t get any better than this. You get a great set of speakers AND a powerful subwoofer for $199 total. Most people that have seen them ask me where they can get a set of speakers like this, most likely at your local CompUSA. You can t go wrong here. Most $199 speakers I have seen at the stores have an okay-sized subwoofer and two to four small speakers, with this, you get a subwoofer that is 10 x9.5 x15 , not to mention the woofers on the satellites are 5 x5 .

You seriously cannot go wrong with buying these speakers. When it comes to the value of these speakers, I quote my cousin, who is going to be five next month; Wow! These are really nice. I need to get me one of these puppies!

As for the usefulness? If you play games, listen to music, watch movies, whatever it is you do on your computer, and your old speakers just can t keep up, an upgrade to the EV Sonic XS speakers is definitely in your future.

Overall Impressions

To be honest, these speakers are just awesome. I cannot say enough about them. They are powerful enough to put a hole through the wall and then some.

The clear, crisp audio and the steady boom of the bass is enough to keep you gaming in style for years to come. And at $199 you can t go wrong.
