Looking for Cheap Speaker doesn't need extra power supply.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am using Random asian brand speaker with Soundblaster Z (and Creative AL! headphone)
My cheap asian speaker started to have "hiss" and random noise unless i turn speaker volume to very low...

I dont listen to music with speaker, only for Youtube, movie and non-FPS gaming

Due to limited space and no more power socket next to my PC...
I am looking for small 2.0/2.1 speaker for low price (about $50?).

I know i can't get good speaker with this price but please give me some suggestion.
I am from HK, Choice of brand is limited as well sadsmiley.gif

Thank You.

From Creative:
Output Level (Full Scale)
Front Channel Out : 2Vrms
Headphone (33 ohms): 1.3Vrms
Headphone (600 ohms): 2Vrms


That's not enough power to drive unpowered speakers.
You need powered speakers, ie speakers that plug into the mains.

You may be able to find USB powered speakers somewhere, but I wouldn't recommend it- they usually suck.

hmm.. just ignore the Power supply requirment..
accord from the OCN Audio recommand Post

Creative T3130 is about $40($290HKD) in HK. worth it?

I cant find other brand like M-audio, Swan and Alesis. I can find Klipsch but not Promedia 2.1...

any other suggestion for 2.0 Speaker?
Or other smaller 2.1? Thank You
