Before you start a rant and start screaming at me i would like to let you know that i have had 2 sets of Z5500's and would not recommend it. For lots of wall shaking its fine but the quality of the music is more important. So i think that they are crap and that the op shouldn't buy it.

and im looking just for the best bang for the buck, 400 is all i got in the budget. So try to work with me here. I found the z5500 but wasn't sure and wanted to see if anyone had them for some feedback. They did spark my interest, but that 12 dayton made my giddy just not sure how i would set that type of thing up

Why not just use a home theater setup?

What you should do is save up some more money until you can afford a $200 sub woofer, over $350 in speakers and a nice receiver. Dont waste your money now.

You don't need a sound card. There's a couple ways you can connect them. One is to run stereo out to the sub, then connect the bookshelf speakers to the sub.

You can also get a stereo splitter cable, plug that into the onboard sound then connect both the sub and speakers to the splitter cable.

I have that same setup on my pc in the basement.
Its a nice sound, and good bass thump, just not enough thump for a Dubstep song lol
Playing Excision, Datsik - swagga on it sounds good. Playing that same song a 1500w car system will make your neighbors get up and move out the neighborhood

I agree with what some people here are saying about getting better equiptment for more then $400 if you want a bass hit. The z-5500 will do, and sound good, it just wont sound awesome.

I know the hard way.$500 on the Z5500 when i heard that the Control pod had faulty wiring i got a whole new set back and sold it. Now im just looking for another control pod so i could sell my original one. My older Logitech Z-4's are better right now.. So please dont waste your money on these crap speakers!
