A Closer Look

 

 

 

The Fan speed can be adjusted from off to max speed the 120mm can deliver, which is 1400rpm. The manual speed adjustable turn wheel is positioned on the right hand side. Enermax lists the emitted noise level from 25-32dBA. The Audio is connected to the TwisterOdiO 16 via a jack, which is plugged in the Notebook's output connector. The power for the unit is fed from one of the available laptop USB ports. Hooking up the TwisterOdiO is indeed pure child's play. Too bad we didn't find any cable routing on the unit, nor extra USB ports. The two 40mm full-range satellite speakers are protected by a meshed grill.

 

 

 

 

Once we open the TwisterOdiO 16, we directly spotted the vast amount of free space. A 140mm Fan could also feel perfectly at home here. Both the speakers are safely housed into a plastic tube, this being damped by big rubber rings. The fan speaker/control unit is housed on a tiny green PCB.
