The Creative SBS A120 has three (3) main parts. The satellite speakers, the subwoofer, and the volume control cable.

The Satellite Speakers

Final Thoughts…

The Creative SBS A120 is definitely a decent speaker for its price. If there’s a “Monitor ng bayan“, then the Creative SBS A120 will be the “Speaker ng bayan“. For the price ranging from ₱799 to 1,199. This speaker definitely is a good value-oriented speaker.

Overall, the loudness is likeable and very satisfying. The audio clarity is excellent at decent levels as well as its bass. However, cracking up the volume reveals the weakness of the speaker. Setting the source at a maximum level and adjusting the speaker volume to mid-high around 40 to 60% already causes the audio quality to waver. The audio produced starts sounding like a broken stereo ready to explode.

In a real-world scenario, you will rarely hit that level or get to that point where the weakness of the speaker starts to show up. TIP: The ideal setting for this speaker is having your source to sit at 80 to 90% volume and adjust the loudness using the speakers’ volume control.

With the overall performance, audio quality, and value, we reward the Creative SBS A120 a B2G Best Value Award.

  1. ganito yung speaker ko dati. nabili ko I think 2015. ngayon hindi na gumagana yung left satellite output. nagloloko na yung volume controller. tingin ko andun ang sira.

  2. Sana palaging may gantong review, yung pang masa ang price para naman nakaka inspire bumili, pag mahal kasi yung niri-review na items hanggang basa na lang kami. hehehe

  3. This is actually a good budget set of speakers. I had a similar one before and it lasted for a couple of years. 🙂

  4. Got this set around a year ago. Really happy with the sound quality especially for its low price. For the bass control, it was necessary to use a 3rd-party application as there was no other way to adjust the load bass output. http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/equalizer_apo.html

  5. Hi, I Sohaib from Lahore Pakistan. I need Volume Control of this model. please advise. Thank You.
