Closer Look:

The E3350 speakers some complete with a pair of tall satellite speakers and the included Subwoofer.  These are powered speakers and the amplifier is located in the subwoofer as are the sub volume controls and connections.  On the bottom of the subwoofer are three small foam pads that keep it in place and prevent it from rattling on the floor if you turn it up too loud.  The satellites have a nice soft padding underneath that prevents them from sliding around on the desk.

The satellites are tall and quite narrow and are tapered as they extend upward.  They measure 9.25" in height and are have both a 2.75" driver and 0.75" tweater in each unit.  Due to the plastic construction of these speakers, we are not able to take them apart without destroying them and can't get a better look at the actual speakers under the grill.  As you can see below, the Edifier logo is brandished on the glossy top of each of these speakers.  Also take note that the speakers are wired together to a single 1/8" stereo jack and can only be separated as far as the cable is long.  That being said, these will easily sit at least 7' away from each other and should provide ample stereo separation.

While we can't see much of the subwoofer due to its plastic design, we can take a peek and see that there indeed is a driver residing under the plastic pyramid.  Edifier says that the driver is a 5" unit capable of reproducing sound as low as 40Hz.  It may actually do that, but not at any volume.

The design of the subwoofer is quite unique and the whole set of speakers is a little "jolie vie".  On the subwoofer we have connections for power, speaker output and audio input as well as a connector for the external wired volume control.

You don't get a real good idea of the shape and style of the subwoofer until you take a "Top Down" look at it.  It has a very interesting triangle footprint that is probably more for style than for function.  It catches the eye though and the very top of the subwoofer also holds the power button that controls sound to all speakers - not just the sub.
