YAY! I got my new Z5500s!! Can someone teach me the ropes?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well, I got them for Christmas (thanks mom). And I love them to DEATH.

But I have many questions...(as usual...and it gets annoying as some of you who may have seen my Xbox 360 thread know very well).

1. Where can i get the manual for this?
2. Is there a way I can get more effects?
3. What is your opinion on these speakers?
4. What is the best arrangement for these here? (if possible be specific with feet and what not)
5. Are there any cool hacks mods, or cool things that I could do with my speakers? (without ruining them of course).

And umm that looks like thats all for now.

Thanks in advanced all!

I just got my Z5300e's today. I love them also.
1. Manual? lol pllleeaassee, 'tis for choobs.
2. More effects? Just make sure when you play games you turn the sound quality as high as you can get it
3. I'm sure I'd love them because they're well above mine which I love
4. Try different spots and decide for yourself which arrangement you like best.
5. Not sure what the heck you're talking about there... turn it on full blast and get rid of the neighbors maybe?

If youre using them in your room (box shape) then put each satellite in each corner and find the 'sweet spot' for yer sub.

If the cords are long enough to get to each corner, that is, without you tripping on them and breaking a collar bone.

Also, I'd recommend getting a video card for your rig so you can play games of which I speak. Or do you just listen to music?

i assume these are for your PC?
1. It should have a manual in box. If not visit the logitech website.
2. The installation CD comes with some nifty software.
3. they are the best PC speakers on the market imo, im a music phanatic and love lound sounds so i give them a 10/10.
4. At desk height, but i think its about preferance. I have the sub at monitor height, the centre one infront of my monitor and the sats are around the desk. In order.
5. Could be, wish i knew

No, I play a few games too. I am working on saving up for a 7600gt. So yeah that will be here within a month.

My room isn't box shaped, it is all weird because it is the basement I am going to do some re arranging though.

Like others said, make a "box" out of the four side speakers and the center speaker in front of you. You want to keep them at ear level, so whatever height your chair or desk is at, approximately. The sub will be EXTRA loud (probably OVER loud, with the 5500s) in a corner, so kinda avoid that.

I have the Z-5300s and have REALLY loved them. My close friend has the 5500s and I like them as well, but they are way too big for my 8x12' computer room ^.^. The 5500s have a lot of nice inputs and a really great control panel.

There they all are. What would you people suggest as a good speaker arrangement?

Yes I know that my computer room is a dungeon but thats the only place I can have it (says my mom). Yes, it is in the evil murky scary basement
