Need Advice Fast! Logitech Z 680 - do they overheat?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, I need some advice real quick. I am thinking about picking up this nice set of logitech z 680 speakers off a friend of mine for around $150 ~ $160. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about this and people suggest that the Sub easily overheats and then dies? is that true? I am not willing to put a fan on my one since I like silence and quite and it will be next to my water cooled PC. I am not the guy who plays it at 100% volume but maybe once in a while you know wink.gif

Anyway, how are these speakers, does the sub overheat and is that really a problem? should I pull the trigger and get these speakers? Mainly to be used for Gaming and Music , some movies too but mainly Music and Gaming.

You realize most OCNers were probably about 5 or 6 years old when the Z-680s came out right?...

You demand immediate answers for a antique product and they cry when you don't get a response within half an hour? I got these speakers when I graduated high school and I'm almost 30 now rolleyes.gif

The sub doesn't overheat but the speakers do hiss a lot; the control pod has a low quality pre-amp.

Damnit, now I feel old..:I loved the Cambridge stuff, even tho it started to hiss a lot after a few years.
Sorry, I was really in a hurry and wanted to make the deal and head out to the guys place within the next hour. blushsmil biggrin.gif

astrallite, is it impossible to get a very good AMP and a set of surround speakers for the PC without having to build my own and spend $300 - $600 or maybe a $1000? I dont want the usual Hissing, Overheating, Low quality Crap, I want something that I can just hook up without much knowledge on Audio, like building my own, Here some good amps that offer 5.1 Dolby Digital seems to go for like $300 or more second hand. Way over my budget. sad-smiley-002.gif
