Pro The sound is great despite the speakers' small size
These speakers produce clean highs and full-sounding mids, despite being really small. Audio has great detail so high-frequency effects sound airy and can easily be heard. The mids are also full and slightly forward so vocals and dialogue from movies or games won’t be lost in the mix.
Pro They will easily fit in most audio setups
These speakers won't take up a lot of space on your desk or entertainment table as they are small and compact.
Pro They don't require an external amp
The Kanto Yu2 are powered speakers, meaning they have their own amplifier. You can simply connect them to your audio source via USB or 3.5mm cable and you’re good to go.
Pro The build quality is solid
These speakers have a good heft with a quality look and feel. The cabinet finish is nice and smooth and there is no rattling when moving the speakers.
Pro You can easily integrate subwoofers
There is an extra 3.5mm port at the back of the main speaker where you can connect a subwoofer. This port makes it easy to enhance the Yu2’s bass performance.
Con Bass may be lacking
These speakers may not be able to deliver the deep and rumbling low-ed that you are after. While the bass is present, the small drivers are not able to deliver a lot of low-end thump.
