These things are AWESOME. Maybe not quite "studio monitors," but at half the price of most of the other monitors out there (and not much more than most computer or bookshelf speakers), these things little things are surprisingly clear, balanced, and perfect basic recording/mixing of guitar and vocals - not to mention just regular music playback. They are surprisingly full-sounding! As for features, it's nice too that you can choose which side you want the volume knob to go on. I do wish the tilt-back angle of the little monitor pads it comes with was maybe a little steeper, but the fact that they come with foam pads at all is great - for acoustics AND for placement. The look of them is really nice too. Again, they're not exactly studio monitors, but they're so much more "pro" looking than computer speakers. Anyway, no regrets with my purchase here. Highly recommended.

I used these speakers for about a year until they went out. I bought insurance when i ordered them..then after they went out, I was still covered under the insurance but was required to still pay a $50-60 fee to get them fixed. They are good if you need them for a quick setup but definitely not long lasting and not worth buying the insurance if you still have to pay a "deductable".

Comments about Mackie CR4 4" Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors - Pair:

I was very impressed with the CR4's overall performance. Very versatile for such a small unit and at an affordable price. The design, colors and the many options it provides for you, make this a small multimedia beast. I personally use the CR4 monitors for production and I have no regrets at all. If you have thought about buying the CR3/4's and have had doubts.... I am telling you don't! Go get these bad boyz!

      These were some good speakers just didn't pack enough punch for me. But good quality for the price. Of ur looking for something small with good sound, pick these up. But not if you're looking for something that thumps.

          I purchased these monitors for listening to musical recordings that I make on my Boss BR-800 instead of listening with my headphones. They work great in my bedroom/studio.

          Got them real quick after ordering on-line. Just hooked them up, tried them out, and am really pleased. Gave that low end I was looking for for my small home studio needs. Sounded great on my past projects done in a professional studio. I look forward to new projects to come. Very good price and very good quality. Totally Pleased. Thanks you Guys and Gals at Guitar Center.

            If you are looking for something in between a studio monitor and a multimedia speaker, these are perfect. Work great for bedroom recording as well as watching videos or gaming.

              Use for office-based voice/interview studio monitoring. Excellent sound worthy of larger Mackie monitors (I've had MK5s for 5 years in my home video editing studio).
