This review is from: Cyber Acoustics CA-1001WB 5.25" Drive BAy Amplified Computer Speaker System
the speaker holes you see in the front arent even where the speakers are the speakers are normal sized speakers mounted by 3 screws facing up to the top of the housing those holes are simply for sound to be heard and most likely arent even needed seems more for a design and authentic look rather than a actual use. it is about a 1/2 inch shorter than a SATA DVD Burner drive (Lite On Model) and where as the SATA ports of the DVD Drive are aligned to the left the power and audio in ports on this is mounted dead center so it will clear both power and data cables when mounted right below a SATA drive. Using the AUX jack in the front center (closest to the Volume control) cuts off the input from the computer completely. In most cases the Headphone jack will never be needed as most cases already have a front headphone jack. The is plenty loud although the sound quality is about as terriable as USB powered desktop speakers it does work well.
Could be better sounding for 12V speakers.
The terriable sound could be do to the fact that the speakers are mounted facing the top of the housing. What might have improved quality is making some sort of funnel system that sent the sound DIRECTLY out the grill holes in the front.
i bought the CA-1000 (Beige) model.
The included adaptor IS NOT NEEDED this can be powered by the Floppy Drive power connector just as good.
