Upgrade from my dying X-230's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm definitely a fan of 2.1, and my X-230's have lasted me a good while, but they seem to be dying now. I'm really looking for something a step up but not too expensive that has rich bass/lows.

I imagine I'll probably end up buying something used on ebay or whatnot... any suggestions?

We are gonna need a budget. First off I wouldn't recommend the M10s already. They don't go low enough and don't produce enough bass.

Try the Audioengine A2 speakers. I purchased these to replace my Logitech X-230s as well.

I was worried about the lack of bass on the A2s since it's so small and the lack of a sub; but you would be surprised at the amount and quality of bass it puts out. It is tight and thumpy. Not chest pounding bass but bass is definitely better than the X-230s.

When listening to vocals or instruments, the Logitechs don't even compare.
