This home theater will work best only if ur sitting inside a cubicle. Not even in a 10x10 room...Absolutely no poin in buying this. Its remote causes issues within a month and getting a replacement for it was also not possible. The philips website itself doesnt have this model...

Please don't buy this product at all. Even my LED TV gives better sound output than this. Especially the sub-woofer, it is just a box of no use.
Comparing to my 2.1 creative, initially i thought my my piece was faulty. Later i realized that this is what a PHILIP 5.1 can provide the maximum. So bad. Please don't buy this product.
Back to 2.1 creative and living with that. Happy to hear good quality sound from 2.1 and than a 5.1 waste.

sound is so weak especially the subwoofer... i tried changing position of subwoofer & sitting position but nothing works... my room size is only 9X8... and the remote control has got mind of its own coz occasionally it completely stops working...
Need to buy another two Y splitter jack and two 3.5 mm jack and , then it will sound good.

I bought this product for my 1 bhk flat 9 months ago, so you can assume my review from a well experienced consumer. I needed a descent sound quality but not so high pitch volume for me. This product does the same, it has good descent sound quality but not the best(mind it).
And like other users must have experienced the low volume of the product which is true if you are planning it to rock your home then dont go for it.
About bass reflex, in starting it was horrible, bass was not coming at all but after placing it under my table bass it is coming really good.
The biggest and biggest problem I faced was its one 3.5 mm jack, which was company provided. Due to which sound was really coming very low, I started to dig in to solve this problem and I came up with the solution to use three input 3.5 mm cord and it was mind boggling and frustrating to purchase two 'Y' shape headphone splitter and two male 3.5 mm jack and then combined it to be used in three input hole of it.
It is a shame from the Philips brand that they are selling the product without its sufficient accessories.
Now about its remote which has got its own limitation of 6-7 feet that also you need to stand in the front only when using. The biggest biggest biggest drawback which I have not mentioned till now is its dependency on the remote only, no manual switches are there to control, so once your remote is gone your 2500 rs. has been wasted, mind it too.
Verdict: To be true just some days ago my brother wanted to buy one speaker for his home, I did not recommend it because of its non sense insufficient accessories(one 3.5 mm cord only was provided) and then sick remote. Go for other brands who satisfies all your music need and the value for money.
If you want to experiment and buy cords and place it under table then you may like the sound quality of this product, so in my view after purchasing this you wont feel like your quest for a good music speaker has ended.
At last, purchase it on your own risk.

I think no one can get a better speaker or home theatre of 5.1 surround sound and also the
Brand quality and guarantee assured by Philips in the price of Rs2500 it works
With notebook, led television .so go for it without thinking too much one thing you must
Compromise with sound output but again no one can get a better home theatre in this price range.its good in this price that is its a very good product from philips.
THE VOLUME IS NOT SO EFFECTIVE

Worst 5.1 speaker ever!!

Cons-(I'm starting with cons cuz there are no pros worth mentioning)
1)The remote works terribly and 'No' manual switches to operate the speakers.
2)Wires are really short,not enough to set up the rear speakers..
3)The Bass is really faint and practically the woofer would just be a way to waste space in your living room.
4)3 jacks intented for the front,center and rear inputs.But only one chord is provided(Excellent!),which means that either you have to buy the other two separately or just use it as a 2.1 speaker with only the front speakers working.I would rather call it a 2-Speakers(not even 2.1 because of its awful woofer) rather than 5.1-Speaker.
1)A great way to waste 2500Inr.
2)A great way to waste space in your home.
3)A great way to promote companies who sell crappy products under their well established brand names.
4)A great way to waste your time ringing up service centres and to curse yourself for buying these boxes of crap.
