    Creative T100 Layout and Features

    Pictures do make the T100 speakers look tall and thin but they measure in at 216 x 90 x 123 mm (8.5 x 3.5 x 4.8 inches) each.  The smaller profile does give some additional versatility when placing the speakers on a smaller workspace.

    The T100 speakers can be placed up to 2.0m (6.56 ft) apart using the link cable attached to the left speaker. Both speakers have a slight offset giving them a bit of a upward angle from the front.  The metal grills don’t come off but the setup looks pretty durable and should wipe clean under normal wear.

    Audio is provided by a 2.75″ full-range driver in the top of each speaker supporting a frequency response of 50 Hz to 20kHz. Additional bass is provided through Creative’s BasXPort technology seen opening up in the back. The system uses a built in Amplifier to push up to 40W RMS and peaks at 80W.  Pretty impressive for such a small package!

    The onboard controls are pretty basic with a power button, volume controls and an input selector on the top of the right speaker.  The buttons are textured rubber and pretty intuitive.

    As with all of the latest Creative products, the T100 offers more connectivity options than you might expect on a compact setup. The T100 Speakers can be connected with Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm AUX-in, optical-in or USB.  The USB port supports USB flash drives up to 32 GB in FAT 32 format. Optical is designed for optical Input from TVs.

    Also included are the required power cable with a 1.5m (4.92 ft) length and a relatively large remote control.  The remote control has the same basic features as the onboard controls and more. With the control you can initiate Bluetooth pairing, select from four preprogrammed EQ settings (Music, Cinema, Concert and Gaming) and control your media when using the Bluetooth or USB sources. There are also separate controls for bass and treble tuning.
