Bose Companion 2

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Are these Bose Companion 2 good speakers?
http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/nav...=5&item=349465
These are the first series. I just wanted to know if they are still good if not I'll need to buy a new one.

Will a sound card increase the quality of the sound with these speakers?

A sound card is always help a little but those aren't worth 70 by any means if you are going to buy them, buy any other 2.1 comp speakers or better yet a set of bookshelf speakers.

Here's a review. 3 stars out of 5. Biggest complaint - sound quality doesnt match cost.
