    Computer Audio 3.1 Setup

    How would this setup sound. This will be going into a 7.1 Surround Sound card that will be coming with my new alienware laptop in a couple months. Til then into an Audigy 2 ZS sound card. Any other suggestions?

    Reciever:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=250-500

    Speakers: (should i get the 3 ways? with the 8" mid woofer instead?)
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=250-675

    Center Speaker:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=250-685

    Sub:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=295-120

    Sub Amp:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-804

    Custom Box for the sub, undecided on specs yet. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance. Also what wires other than speaker wiring would I need? RCA's I'm assuming, anything else?

    It's all good, I just figure I could throw the extra speaker in there for a little more sound instead of the rear speakers. I see no need for rear speakers for a computer when I'm mostly just going to be playing music, rarely gaming with them. And even then, not much surround sound is needed. Anyways, good setup you guys think?

    That's a hellacious deal on a set of bookshelf speakers...

    For that price it'd be worth it just to experiment with new crossovers and driver tweaks Definitely post up your comments when you get them.

    Re: Computer Audio 3.1 Setup

    BTW that driver you posted isnt a sub at all, but rather an OEM driver used for towers...look for something else...

    For a budget sub, look into the dayton DVC classic series. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=295-490. They are cheap and cheap to power, i have the 8 inch version and its surprisingly beefy and well built...100 watts would be enough...

    Plus a ton more I never added, lol. If you are not on the list and you had a pleasant transaction with me, PM me!!!

    That looks like a pretty good sub. What should I build a box for it at, if I'm going to mostly be listening to music? Maybe 1.5cf tuned to 28-30? I really have no idea, just a rough estimate.

    just wondering, how would you build a box for a home theater sub if you were to use a car sub?

    The same way you'd build an enclosure for a vehicle...except that if you're porting, you're generally tuning lower.
