3D Spotlight : Hardware : Benwin BW2000 Flat Panel Speakers review


Benwin BW2000 Flat Panel Speakers review
Posted by Adam Klein on November 10, 1999
Company: Benwin     Product: BW2000 Flat Panel Speakers

I first heard about the flat panel speaker technology about a year ago and I must admit I was a bit skeptical that a flat speaker can produce a descent sounding volume.

The flat panel speaker system Benwin has introduced has its own niche in the market. The speakers are ideal for small spaces and are perfect for portable CD players and laptop computer systems.

The BW2000 not only includes the two flat panel speakers, but also includes a small subwoofer that gives sound more depth and powers the flat panel speakers. While the panel speakers provide crisp treble, they are lacking the strong bass that gamers like. Thankfully, Benwin has provided the subwoofer to combat this. The subwoofer is not very powerful though, but we can say it is adequate.

Here's a run down on the specs of the BW2000 flat panel multimedia system:

-Subwoofer Unit-

Total Power Output: 6W (rms)

Frequency Response: 50-250Hz

Driver: 4" woofer

Impendence: 6 ohms

Dimensions: (W x H x D)

4.72" x 4.96" x 6.69"


2.2 lbs.


-Satellite Unit-

Total Power Output: 3W + 3W (rms)

Frequency Response: 150-20KHz

Driver: NXT Flat Panel Technology

Impendence: 4 ohms

Dimensions: (W x H x D)

5.11" x .86" x 6.89"
(including protrusions)

Weight: .59 lbs. with cable

Power Source: 100V AC 50/60Hz

Adapter Power: 12V DC 1.5A

Did you notice the depth the speakers have? Only .86 inches. With only .86 inches, you can place them on a bookshelf with the books still on it. The world is slowly shifting to smaller, more compact sound systems, but most of them use cone technology.

The Benwin speakers in the other hand use a different technology to slim them down to fit into places that cone speakers cannot. This is the main advantage to using flat panel speakers.
