A speaker system is an extremely important part of any home theater or gaming system. A good speaker setup can deliver an immersive audio performance. A good speaker set has three main characteristics; clarity of sound, loudness, and fidelity. The absence of even one of these makes the experience fall flat. The Intex IT-2590 SUFB is a 2.1 channel sound system which gives an impressive sound output and has a wide frequency range of 20Hz ~ 20 kHz.
Let's check the in-depth review of Intex IT-2590 SUFB 2.1 Speaker. It is consists of 1 main subwoofer unit and 2 satellite speakers which together have a peak sound output of 50W. It features a built-in FM radio and supports input from varied sources. It even comes bundled with a remote control and it carries a 1-year warranty. It is available at a price of Rs. 2,580/- in online stores.
The Intex IT-2590 SUFB is a set of portable, light-weight 2.1 channel surround sound system that is built out of wood and plastic which are acoustic-friendly materials. Consequently, this speaker setup delivers a satisfyingly deep bass and an overall rich output. The speakers are well built and appear to be quite sturdy. The main subwoofer unit houses all the controls. Unusually, the subwoofer unit has a horizontal orientation and it immediately reminds one of those old retro radio sets. The front is dominated by a big chunky volume control dial which is surrounded by the four digital control buttons; Mode, Play/Pause, Previous and Next, laid out in a circular pattern.
There is no LED display for displaying track information, etc. But there is an ambient LED light display hidden in the volume knob. It gives the set a futuristic look. The subwoofer unit stands on four rubber feet and has a downward-firing speaker for an extra punchy bass output. The USB port and the SD card slot sit on the top edge of the subwoofer for easy access. The two satellite speakers sport a glossy finish. The speakers in the satellite units are exposed and are painted in a bright orange color. These provide a nice contrast to the glossy black speaker body. This further adds to the futuristic look of the speaker set. The design of the Intex IT-2590 SUFB is an eccentric mix of retro and futuristic and it works in the favour of this setup. Full marks to Intex for a sturdy build and a beautiful design.
The Intex IT-2590 SUFB has a separate subwoofer with a downward-firing speaker for a punchy bass performance. The two satellites take care of the mids, highs, and lows.
