Lookin to new set of speakers

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Currently i have Altec Lansing GT-5051 (Link here) Gives a simulated 5.1 sound by bouncing sound off walls.. Worked well for the past few years ive had them.

Lookin to replace with something that sounds nicer, and has a bit more... oomph? (sub power...) I've been drooling over the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Computer Speakers for a while.. At $150, they (i believe) probably best you could find... but since i'm part of this wonderful community, wondering what you guys have to suggest for a $100 ish budget that can perform better than the Klipsch 2.1's. pretty sure a 100ish budget cant get those nice monitors n subs you all have... >_> and i dont have that much space on my desk to allow such big speakers... xD so suggestions?

Here's my thread to a similar question.

I ended up going with the AV-40's and man do they sound beautiful! For more "oomph" you're going to need a sub (Probably the polk would do fine) but I've been really impressed by them! I love their aesthetics too rolleyes.gif

The competitor against the AV-40's for me was the Swan M10, they might do the trick for you. thumb.gif

iunoe about the swam m10's, on the other thread, it said a lot of people complained about the sub not being strong enough.

think at this point after lookin at the speakers suggested in the other thread for like 30 minutes...

im stuck between...

HiVi Swan D1080MkII 08
M-Audio BX5a
M-Audio AV40

and for subwoofers, probably the

Dayton Audio SUB-1000

being a COMPLETE noob about this.... how do i hook these up? the outputs on the speakers and the inputs on the computer are different... totally different wires/connectors no? on the side note, what wires/connectors to get? XD

Thats why I got the AV-40's as well, you just plug them in and you're done. I've got a 3-way AUX splitter with my AV-40s and subwoofer in it into the sound out on the computer.

Hope this helps thumb.gif

You can't go wrong with Promedia 2.1. I've tried the Logitech Z623 and they are awful.

Theres a decent bass on them as it is, but I just wanted to "fill the room" a little more so I added the sub.
