Pros - Decent subwoofer, Simple and upfront controls, Pretty loud
Cons - Needs a sound limiter, Mids
Firstly I was running some old Panasonic speakers (about 20 years) but I've always wanted more bass. Yes, I'm a basshead. After a lot of research of what's available for purchase in my country I settled down with Logitech Z623, well, mainly because of the subwoofer. First day I got them I didn't really like them, but as I got more used to their sound, they fitted into my life pretty well.
Not over-exposed or anything. Sounds balanced out and doesn't hurt my ears even on high volumes, though not enough for studio use (as I also have a studio, I know a lot). It has a "nearly dedicated" tweeter. All in all 9/10.
That's where these speakers lack quality. It just LACKS MIDS. It's very unbalanced, guitars, vocals sound dim.
Bass is just what you'd expect with that big of a sub. It's very good. Nearly splendid. Though I'm running them off an amped pc output on 50% volume set on windows and around 60% of volume on logitechs subwoofer sounds distorted and smells like burning.
Lastly, It's a decent pair of speakers for daily use. You won't be disappointed.
A friend recommended these speakers for me. They work great if your room is not too big. The bass is pretty good and they are pretty cheap. Good bargain for the price. I would prefer more treble but for the money I think it is fine. I am thinking of getting some tweeters to work along with these Logitechs and have the highs come more to life.
Pros - They play sound, and hook up through everyday common connectors!
Cons - MUD!
The Logitech Z-2300 were a decent pair of speakers. A few friend had them and I was enthused when they played them. Also they were made at a time where it's said that fitting the most quality into this range of computer speakers was the goal of many manufacturers (*Klipsch ProMedia 2.0, from said time period, still selling*) Logitech has and ugly side we all know too well. In current days it would seem keeping up with the neighbors and releasing products made cheaply with false claims is the route taken here.
The highs and mids are a mixed, muddy, bloody mess, despite allegedly using the same tweeters as the Z-2300. The sub is OK, it gets boom and muddy when turns to high (aside from the volume itself) On top of the ikky sound they took out the separate control pad and put all the knobs on the right speaker, so you can't 'stow' them or put the right speaker out of reach. To make matters worse, there is no externally present slow blow fuse. The fuse is inside the *smaller* sub so if that blows, your down an entire set (happened to me )
If (*IF* and only ifffff) yo need a quick fix then be my guest though for the ~$150 range there IS better.
