Default new logitech speakers

I just saw a pic of the new logitech computer speakers, and I think they are now using the W3-871S if im not mistaken. Can anyone confirm this? I know Tang Band makes tons of drivers, but what ive read about these lends me to believe that they are using the 871.

I was going to post this as well.

Here is a link to the speakers: http://tinyurl.com/44pt4 . They are priced at about 370$ canadian.


It really does look like the 871. Although it could be a custom driver made for logitech like with the z-640s and I believe the z-680s.

They rate them a little high though (as usual), 62 watts. While TB says 30W max for the 871.

Even if they are 871s (a hit-or-miss proposition at best, since TB makes an awful lot of similar-looking drivers and as I understand it the 871 is something of a special-order model, hence its availability only from a couple of sources), I wouldn't take that as an indication of the sound quality. In tiny boxes with tiny baffles like that, they probably are crossing them over really high and running the sub really loud/really high to compensate. And I seriously doubt they would trouble themselves to do any FR smoothing/notch filtering.

Not to knock Logitech, they are well-regarded in the "multimedia speaker" market, but I've yet to hear any speakers like those that sound anywhere close to "real" speakers. It's probably not possible to get really good sound out of boxes THAT small with inexpensive drivers and still be able to make them go loud (which is a major priority in that segment of the market).

Interesting all the same.

They always do that, even with the 680's they said It was like 50 watts, but on the driver it said 25 watts if you took it out of the "box"
