So I walk into my spanish class, and it is a decent sized room and as soon as I walk in I hear this bass cause my teacher was playing some spanish music. I sit at my desk and I look by where his laptop is in the middle of the room and I see 2 little logitech speakers and like a 4" sub. Man that little thing put out, it sounded very good for only 2 speakers and a sub connected to a little boom box.

No "computer speakers" I've heard sounded very good to me...you need to build your own to really get great sound quality out of them.

Fortunately, you could build a pair and a sub for relatively cheap.

IMO, no computer speakers sound great ... and Logitechs generally rank fairly low on my of computer speakers as far as SQ goes ... However, most Logitech systems are very capable in terms of output ...

jMac! haven't you heard the Klipsch Promedia 5.1? That's THX, baby!

I have the Logitech 5.1 system...

Bass is incredible. SQ not really there. But I was going to buy the Klipsch 5.1 system for my computer but they sounded identical to the Logitech series but the Klipsch cost another $100! There pretty good computer speakers imo

I prefer the klipsch promedia's if I was looking to buy a dedicated speaker setup for my computer. But I just use a stereo receiver and 2 12" sony floorstanding speakers and a set of JBL Sat 10's running with the Bass 6 sub (dual 6 1/2"s)

I think my computer speakers are Logitech... and **** they ****. But they still do the trick until I get a CD burnt and play it on a real system. But logitech makes the best mouse... I got one... had it for like 5 years with no problems.

I have a hand-me-down Altec Lansing 2.1 set...

They sound...well, like they were given to me, to tell the truth. And no multimedia speaker setup that I have ever heard - whether it be on a computer in a house, displayed in a store, wherever - sounded worth the asking price.

I listened to the Klipsch setup...they sounded overpriced, IMO.

But my pc isn't used as a source of really listenable music. It recreates the various video games I play well enough and that's all it needs to do, I reckon.

O/T: Not pc speakers but ~ I had a set of Klipsch Tangent T40 towers and a set of KG4 shorties once. Even for entry-level Klipsch they were...awesome. Really tough bass for 8s with 12" passive radiators.

JimJ

KG4's are very decent speakers...91dB/W, IIRC.

You'd have to go to the full-size Forte's to get a noticeable improvement from them.

And let's just say...my Forte II's kick some sonic ***.

This was back in '91 when I had splurged pretty big on home stereo one afternoon...

Complete set of Onkyo components and those two sets of Klipsch speakers. The Tangents were essentially the same speaker as the KGs (horn, two 8s, and the rear passive) but the Tangents' enclosures were just about twice the height as the KGs. All of 'em sounded great for the $350/set I got 'em for ;) Place I bought 'em from had a serious overstock and wanted 'em gone. I asked how much for the two sets and dude says "$700 if you'll take all four of those **** things out of my showroom today."

A pair of those would own a set of "computer speakers"...badly.

50 watts can't be loud? :uhoh:

Well, maybe not for the Altec Lansing system...but choose your speakers correctly, and 50 watts will be more than you need.

you ever been to a concert? those 2x12's that they use for the guitars are usually under 120 watts...

120 watts being ran by a constant 110v is alot different than car audio..

I'm not sure I understand the second part of your statement...a watt is a watt as far as measurement goes...it's the loudspeaker's efficiency that makes the situation different. You don't generally have 98-100dB/W efficient speakers in a vehicle.

The Kilpsch Stuff is awsome.. sounds so good. Im gonna try these out in a few days http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002QKUUM/sr=1-1/qid=1125803146/ref=sr_1_1/002-8026043-6446434?%5Fencoding=UTF8&m=A9B09ZK9BZJQ6&n=10931451&s=merchant&v=glance

Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 Ultra >>> Logitech *

I've owned Logitech Z-5500's, Z-5300e's, and Klipsch's ProMedia 2.1's prior to owning these (5.1 Ultras). IMHO these ProMedia 5.1's dump all over both Logitech models. In some cases the Logitech woofers produce a little more output (barely noticable), but when it comes to deep, clear, quality bass response there's no comparison (Logitech's stuff from my experience is very boomy, and sloppy).

I got myself the Klipsch Promedia Ultra 5.1's. I think I paid about 275 for em (best buy discount > all). I was just gonna build my own system w/ a reciever and everything, but it would have costed me over 400 bux, and I'm tight on money right now....

I have a set of the Cambridge Soundworks 550THX MegaWorks from Creative Labs. They sound awesome for the price I spent. Everytime I tell people the speakers they hear are only the little 2 inch satelites sitting on top of the big dead tower speakers, their jaw drops. I can turn these bad boys all the way up, and there isn't even the faintest amount of distortion.

try something that actually sounds good ;)

i am a firm believer in full range and single driver horn setups, but for big sound, u need to sweep some air towards ur head :)

then again, these are computer speakers, so what i said is subject to either flames or disagreement.

i have some polks for my computer (a couple sattelites and a about a 6" or 5.25" subwoofer). they are, eh, ok. they sound good at low volumes, but at higher volumes they dont retain the same sound quality. however, they are plenty loud and good enough for a computer. my home theatre system is where i concentrate my money and listening for movies and music.

Well, maybe not for the Altec Lansing system...but choose your speakers correctly, and 50 watts will be more than you need.he wasnt talking about super home audio 108db sensitivity speakers so i didnt comment on it. i commented on the altec lansing, so yes, on that... 50 aint loud..

on somethin else... thats another story and another thread all together
