Sony SPSL2 Speaker Package? by Andy Turner
Anyone know what the spec is with these, and whether they're any good? From the photo, the sub appears to be 100w (which I guess isn't that much?), but I don't know about the rest. Maybe it's a Richer Sounds only package, because I can't find a review or much reference to the model number...
