Small, but deadly. These tiny speaker cubes, measuring just under 2.5 inches square, have not one, but two speakers inside. JVC has packed a lot of sound into these SP-A440 Active Speakers.

If you're in the market for some a new set of desktop speakers or a compact iPod-based audio system, these might fit the bill. They come in four colors, black, red, silver, or white and will set you back $79 for the set. The included speaker stands will also let you position them just right, and they will disappear into anyone's decor.
