I'm looking for a speaker system that can throw Dubstep/DnB/Trip Hop/Hip Hop/etc at me HARD.

Here's my current system - http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Insignia...=1218100580401

It's good, but I want wall-shaking bass if it meets budget. Literally.

My budget is around $200 for the total system.... If possible

Cheers.

I don't know how good or bad that speaker system is, however it almost looks like it's time you invested in a good sound card that can produce some really deep, high quality low end.

You're not going to get good quality bass that can also shake the walls for $200. The sub alone would likely cost more than that.

I was thinking that. My friend showed me a system not TOO long ago, but I can't remember the name.

I know it was like Logictech-Z, whatever. It was around $300?

I watched videos of it on YouTube in action and it bumps HARD.

I'll definitely go this road if the quality will improve that much.

If you don't have a good sound card to match, then you probably won't be happy - not even with the Z-5500.

If audio quality is not of your concern and you just want some face punching on the cheap then go for the Logitech Z-2300's.

Z5500? Those are crap speakers. They get loud, but they sound like junk.

I use a Boston 12" sub for the home theater and it cost around $400. I shakes all too well :-) $200 is a bit slim for something that will really put out the power you want.

The Klipsch Promedia 5.1 sub is preaty freaking amazing too.....If you can find one......No you can't have mine :-p. Again a $400 system :-/


Make sure the sub is placed in the corner of the room....makes a big difference as compared to just by a wall.
