Did they tell you in dB range of the frequency response? My laptop
speakers do 1-1,000,000 Hz (+-100dB). Obviously, the important part
there is the +-100dB. Generally, a decent frequency response is
+-3dB. Many manufacturers use +-6dB because it makes them look much
better. And many just make up the numbers.
If they don't tell you what the +-dB are, they are probably lying.
