Ok, first let me say, please don't put my system down, just cause its WalMart

anyway, I went to Walmart with some $$$ I got for Christmas. only had about 100. anyway, I got the Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater System....the one without a DVD player, because i already have a DVD player. So I hooked it up to the big 27 inch Tv and it was pretty good. Only problem was I cant run the back speakers to the back, because I live in an apt and would have to run wires across the floors. Well, after a couple of days, I noticed that something didn't sound right....well sure enough, one of the front speakers wasn't working. So I went back to Walmart, and did an exchange...just got the same model again.

Now here's the fun part. When I got back home, instead of hooking it up to the TV again, I hooked everything up to the Computer. I play games more than I watch TV anyway, and I was able to set the rear speakers up right. The computer is on a computer desk in a little cubby hole between the closets in the bedroom. So the front 3 speakers are on top of the desk and the 2 rear speakers are on the wall on each side of the cubby hole. and the sub is under the desk next to the CPU

Now, I know that this thing is only 60watts, but I also downloaded a little program called SRS Audio Sandbox, and I don't know exactly how it works, but it more than doubles my sound. I can't put the volume up on my computer more than 1/4 or its too loud (at least thats when my wife starts to complain). I played some Bass Mekanik songs through it, and I am thoroughly impressed. Who says that you can't get good stuff cheap.

Anyway, thats my my 2 cents worth...it may be a cheap system but my games (notably Call of Duty) sound a LOT better with it.

hey, if think that **** kicks *** north and south, revel in it all. congrats!! ppl always get on here and say they bought a subwoofer and they f'n love it to death. they say that it goes so low and they hear bass loud and clear that they never heard before. when they say it's a 12" flubblelish sub. ppl diss it sayin ' that sub is a piece of crap!! you get a ( fill in blank) instead and you'll be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay happier' . so what what it's from walmart, so are 1/2 of the clothes and 80% of the groceries that ppl have
