      Answer

      These speakers are designed for desktop listening use with a computer. They are not generally suited to use with a television or home-theater setup as they do not feature a digital audio input or remote control. They may be able to attach to certain older TV’s with an analog output, but many newer TV’s may not be compatible. For a powered stereo speaker system to use with your TV, we would suggest Our Cinemate II.

        Answer

        Thanks for the question. Some specifications such as speaker wattage are not published for our products. The reason these specifications are not published is that we do not feel they give an accurate representation of how the product will sound in a real application. That being said, the maximum power consumption for this product is 4.5 W.

        Answer

        I was debating between the two as well, and while the Companion 20s offer deeper bass delivery and a wider range in frequency, don't be so quick to dismiss the Companion 2s with their low price compared to the 20s. I personally couldn't justify the price difference, so I went with the Companion 2s.

        Answer

        The price was very reasonable and you have the option of controlling the volume as well as the power straight from the speaker. Using your iTunes, these could definitely be used for music in a small room for a party or something similar. They work great with the desktop so I'm sure they would do the same for a laptop.

            The Companion 2 III speakers require power however the power supply is only connected to the right speaker. The left speaker connects to the right via a cable.

            To mount these speakers on a wall or under a shelf you pull the rubber feet off the speaker stands and attach them thru the holes where the feet were using locally sourced hardware.

              They are 7.5" (Height) by 3.1" (Width) by 5.9" (Depth). Awesome speakers for the size, and well worth the $100!
