View Full Version : Computer sound

05-29-2007, 03:59 AM
Well once again i find myself asking an annoying question. Well my friend is getting married and he needs some sound for his new little house. My friends and I are looking to get him either a 2.1 or 5.1 system for the computer and all of us are willing to spend up to 200 dollars.

One of the friends has some creative 5.1 and well i wasn't to impressed with the semi farty sounding bass and lack of clarity. So to ask, where should I start with when it comes to brands and models?

Logitech makes some fairly decient computer speakers that arent to bad.
Most are a 2.1 or a 4.1, dont really need a 5.1 since the center channel is mainly used for dialogue.
You could also get him a nice cheap home theater in a box.

something like that would work pretty well.

There are home theater systems that are really 5.1 channels, then there are the fake ones that use a 2.1 signal but has 5 speakers + subwoofer.

5.1 is gay for computer systems ... Just get 2.1 ... Klipsche is probably the best you'll find for computer speakers as far as clarity goes ...

I run 5.1 :blackeye: (when i watch movies anyways. :) )

Thanks for the input.

My friends and I narrowed it down to the klipsch promedia 2.1 or the logitech Z-2300 spec wise. We chose a 2.1 system because we visited the "soon to be married" friend and his room is teeny tiny, and 2.1 will suffice.
