Bose Speakers - Worth the money? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Why couldn't the world just have 2 Types of speakers for each price range. $150 offers 2 types, quality for $150 or for $100 you get more power but not as good sound quality.

It's all good guys, I have JBL speakers and have had Altec Lansing and the $120 Lansing set I had actually started to pop so I chucked them. I am not sure who said Bose doesn't have bass must have been listening to a 2 speaker set or something but mine really do sound like a much larger set. I really do know there is cheaper sets of speakers out there that do sound great but for how long? I agree with the other guy who was saying to look into JBL also and yes they are also expensive but when it comes to speakers you get what you pay for.

Not really, I took several CD's, DVD's and hi quality mp3's and ran them through both. I saw a post which i VERY MUCH agree with. Bose sounds great at a distance but they're not made for a gaming rig. Speakers that are made to be at a close/intermediate range has Logitech written all over them. Now this almost makes a difference on sound card as well. I'm a firm believer that onboard sound cards won't measure up to a high quality sound card. My X-Fi plays a HUGE role in the sound I'm getting out of my computer.

You know with what I just said, before you start looking into speakers, look into getting a nice sound card first.
