On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.
So today we are actually reviewing a complete kit from Point of View graphics. The kit entails a graphics card (GeForce 9600 GT), a gamers amBX kit (speakers/subwoofer, lights) and a free copy of Brothers In Arms - Hell's Highway. Since the kit was not yet ready, each manufacturer shipped their product separately to us. So this box and contents is a little different to what POV will offer you.
Once unpacked we spot the subwoofer, two (left/right) speakers with top lights, a control unit (HUB) with embedded three LED clusters, and should you opt for one of the more expensive kits, two optional ventilators and a rumble/vibration pad.
Here we see the subwoofer. It offers enough punch for sure. Basically, one lead goes to your PC (sound output) and then a cable to the amBX hub (we'll show you that later).
Here we spot one of the small speakers, you'll receive two of them. Obviously noticeable on top is the segment powered by bright LEDs. Again, organized in RGB colors to cover all colors of the spectrum. Each LED/Speaker leads to the hub.
