I found a pair of Bang & Olufsen Beovox cx100 desk speakers on Craigslist in excellent condition for $190. My source is going to be an early 2015 MacBook pro. Two questions:

1. Is this a good deal for this model in this condition?
2. What kind of amp will I need to drive them (assuming built-in power from MacBook won't be sufficient)? On Craigslist the specs of the speakers are listed as "6 hohm 100(115)watt". Will this amp work? ( If not, what's a good (ideally budget) option that would?

Thanks so much for any advice on this!

You could consider a pair of BeoLab 4 instead.

They have build in amplifier. And I think they will be a way better match for your Mac.


If you insist on CX

The bass-drivers in the CX speakers are often suffering from bad foam. Check if they have been replaced - and replaced/repaired properly.

I have powered a pair of CX50 with such a small stereo amp. My amp was from Lepai. Got a decent result at moderate volume but don't expect hifi sound
