Hercules XPS speakers
Hercules has unveiled the XPS 2.150, the latest addition to its line of multimedia speakers. The system features two eight-watt compact satellite speakers and a 16-watt wooden subwoofer. The magnetically-shielded satellites feature a gloss black finish with orange driver cones and a back-lit control knob. Users can adjust the ported subwoofer separately, with bass controls and an on/off switch.
The system can also output to headphones, automatically disabling the speakers when they are connected. A line-in jack is provided for an MP3 player or other device. Users can remove the speaker bases and mount use an included wall mount instead. The XPS 2.150 will be available in December, with a suggested price of $70.
