i'm interested in purchasing the z-2300's for a small dj setup. will be using primarily for personal mixing and maybe for a small gethering here and there. it'll be pretty quiet most of the time, with the exception of a few times where it should be a reasonably loud volume. can i plug the mixer into this model without it overheating or killing the speakers? can these speakers handle a little bit of juice? any help would be appreciated!
thanks in advance!!

Hello Floppyt & welcome to Logitech's online Forum.
Yes the Z-2300 can be hooked up to a turntable/Mixer with the provided audio adapter. But will require an additional cable Audio Interconnect (2-Channel) 3M length cable as well from the mixer to the included Z-2300 speaker adapter.
As for cooling:
- The Z-2300 will heat up during long periods of use if its used at or more than 50% volume. In this case, I suggest you add a computer cooler-fan to the heatsink to prevent overheating of the system.
- For low volume between 0% and 49% the heatsink won't heat up as it is passive cooling.
There's no need to hesitate in purchasing the Z-2300 system. It's woth the quality and are the best 2.1 speakers avaliable. =D

Thank you for the info. That makes the decision easier. The reason I ask about the frying/blowing out is that I killed an old stereo system..probably by cranking the stereo and not the mixer. Does that sound likely? In the future, should I just adjust the mixer volume and keep the speaker volume at a reasonably low level to prevent any more mishaps?

I also blew my stereo's amplifier - Aiwa 5.0 system.
The output volume of the mixer should be at Max 80% level - then increase the Z-2300 volume till satisfied.

Hello Dioxholster & Welcome to Logitech's online Forum.
Depending on your output source volume, 80% might not be loud. (I.e.. You may have had your source on 20% volume with the Z-2300 at 80% volume)
Overdriving your Z-2300 system will blow the fuse.
Overheating is a cause of a blown amplifier when the heat fins do not have an adequate cooling source.

set up the z-2300's last night. took about two minutes. didn't crank it since it was really late.
it was pretty loud even at about 1/3 of the volume. the different frequencies were nice and crisp when i played around with the mixer. very pleased with the sound quality, especially since i was using some old busted up stereo before. the vinyl sounded warm and lovely. the bass was clear and thunderous at the midway mark. i tried pushing it higher but i realized i would definitely wake my roommate out of a coma. from the look and sound of it, it seems like it can handle enough to cater to a house party. can't wait to give it a good test after work.
i was looking for a cheap pair of speakers that could fill my cavernous bedroom with quality sound and chest thumping bass from my turntables. the z-2300's are everything i've been looking for in one convenient package. it even came with the adapter to connect from the mixer to the speakers. if you're looking for the same, these are on point right out of the box. it's tough to believe that this tiny set up can produce such clean, high quality sound, and bass.
no buyer's remorse here. best purchase i've made in a while. real happy! thanks for the set up and product advice!!

I'm glad you're liking the Z-2300 system. For even better quality sound from the Z-2300 system, replace the provided satellite speakers with a pair of 8 Ohm 2-way or 3-way Bookshelf speakers! Remember to add a PC cooling fan to the fins before blasting the volume otherwise the Z-2300 will Fry.
