Yeah..
noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Time for somebody to stop wasting money in computer parts, and invest in some real audio equipment it seems. biggrin.gif

Make a thread, and PM it to me when you're ready to get started. tongue.gif

Seriously, audio is more of an "investment". PC hardware, you're just wasting money away for more frames, and it'll be outdated in 6 months. Quality audio...it lasts a lifetime if you take care of it. Unless you get bitten by the upgrade bug like the rest of us do. rolleyes.gif
well I do got some Bose quality headpphones.

Bose quality headphones
Do you know anything about headphones? Read up before you buy those Bose. Unless you just want active noise cancellation.

I understood from his post that he already has the Bose headphones. But anyway.

Yep. I guess people got tired of big floorstanders in the 90's or something haha.

Don't underestimate 15" woofers though. That's quite a bit of surface area, even compared to multiple smaller woofers.

Eventually I'm going to build some good home speakers. Dont really have the need right now but I know they'd sound amazing.

Well I'm gonna make an assumption that you're on a budget.
For the amp, I would go for a small class T stereo amplifier. I myself have a Lepai TA2020A+ which I ordered from ebay. Can't remember the exact price right now but it's not much and it will be perfect for a starter sound system.
If you live in usa then you can perhaps order the amp from parts express.
For good starter speakers I'm not completely sure, I don't know much about sub 300

E: And that was directed to OC55, I'm a tad slow on typing on this thing lol

Make a thread, post the link in here for us to look at, and PM the link to me. wink.gif We'll need to know total budget, what you're after (2.0, 2.1, or 5.1), any size restraints for the main speakers / sub, and what type of audio will play through them.
