The Sirocco lineup has long been the top of the line PC speaker option in VideoLogic's acoustic stable, the Crossfire version builds on this reputation by adding two additional speakers for rear channels.
The 80Watt Sirocco Crossfire set encompasses the following components:
2 x 10W dedicated front satellite speakers
2 x 10W dedicated rear satellite speakers
1 x 40W Powered Subwoofer/Amplifier

Pair the Crossfire set with a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Platinum sound card or VideoLogic's own SonicVortex2 card and your PC is immediately ready to tackle MP3 audio, and DVD playback at an impressive scale.
The jet-black speakers and control module reinforce the serious intent of the kit, in fact the feel of the stainless steel control module is second to none, it really belongs in a custom Harmon Kardon or Bang and Olufson audio/video setup.
