Creative has established a good reputation as a developer and manufacturer of multimedia hardware. Computer speaker systems have always been the company’s priority – no less important than the production of sound cards. Creative’s line-up of speaker systems is so extensive that any user can find a product specifically for his/her needs. The development process never ceasing, the company’s engineers are constantly updating the model range.

Thus, the Inspire T5900 system to be reviewed today is to replace the older Inspire T5400 set.

Creative is currently making attempts (and quite successful ones, by the way) to reduce the self cost of its products, groping for the subtle balance between the quality of the audio output and the availability of the systems for all categories of users.

We are going to see today how well-balanced the new speaker system is, but first let’s examine its specification.

Technical Characteristics



Model name

Inspire T5900


Active acoustic 5.1 speaker system

Frequency range


Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR)


Subwoofer output power

22W (RMS)

Satellites output power

8W per channel (RMS)

Central satellite output power

20W per channel (RMS)

Subwoofer diffuser diameter


Satellite diffuser diameter

2.5” midwoofer, 1” – twitter

Subwoofer dimensions


Approximate price


As you can see, the system has rather average characteristics. The range of the reproduced frequencies won’t suit an audiophile, but exactly meets the demands of an ordinary user. I just want to single out the very acceptable diameter of the low-frequency driver, which is going to please us with deep bass.

The box is designed using the company’s official colors
