The iBall Tarang Red 2.1 Channel Surround Sound System is a portable and lightweight speaker system. The speaker cabinets are made of wood which enriches the sound quality. The design on the faces of the speakers is a wonderful mixture of edges and curves finished in a glossy black paint. The speaker grills are painted a dark muted red.
There is a big knob on the centred of the sub-woofer for controlling volume which is surrounded by the rest of the controls in a ring design. Above that is a nice big LED display for displaying volume and track information. There is an SD card slot beside the USB port at the bottom of the sub-woofer. All these design elements come together nicely and combine to give a futuristic look to the set. The main power button is at the back of the sub-woofer.
The iBall Tarang red being a 2.1 Channel Multimedia Speaker sound system gives a surround sound effect with a nice deep bass along with clear highs and lows. This is a low-cost system.

The frequency response starts from as low as 20 Hz. and tops out at 20 kHz. The total peak output is a whopping 130 W!
The included remote control works very well and the FM cable which acts as an antenna is a thoughtful inclusion here as it clears up the built-in FM radio’s reception in some tight spaces. The speaker set supports multiple inputs like SD/MMC, USB, and Auxiliary input. One more convenient addition here is Bluetooth play. The speakers can be connected to a PC or a smartphone via Bluetooth and can play music wirelessly. This eliminates the hassle of wires and tremendously increases the utility of the speaker set.
