    i was wondering what kind of speakers y'all have on your computers.

    i got a Cambridge 500watt subwoofer pushing 2 Zenith Allegro 3000 boxes that has 2 10inch BOSS Riot 400watt speakers/woofers, and 2 2inch tweaters in them i will not even push my computer past 10% Volume because it rattles the whole house and bounces you out of the room at 10%:eek:

    Currently, a Yamaha A100 power amplifier with kenwood speakers. Headphones, Sennheiser HD-25's (pro edition)

    Sorry, it's only 2-channel stereo, but most of my music isn't in surround sound ;)

    Speakers I bought a while back:

    Altec Lansing ADA880. Technically 4.1 speakers, but I can't find the rear 2 speaker connectors, so, with these speakers, you can hook the rears ontop of the two fronts.

    An ancient review: http://www.legionhardware.com/document.php?id=16&p=0

    So, essentially, I have 2.1. :(

    When (if ever) I upgrade my home theatre (110 watts per channel) receiver, I'll be hooking that up to my computer, with my old out dated bose speakers (currently in the living room).. Ack I said Bose! ;)

    Forgot to mention my Fedora core box in my billiard room has 2.1 Harmon/kardon speakers. I do wish I could find the adjustments on that box (the os itself) to modifiy the treble, since the speakers settings for treble, sux.

    Target Clearance Special!! WOOOOHHOOOO:) :eek: :rolleyes:

    Being that I am completely deaf in my right ear and about 20% in the other ear...I'm sure you can understand my lack of enthusiasm for high end sound cards and speakers!!:)

    Nothing fancy Creative Soundblaster sound card and stereo Bose speakers. Very clear and acceptable bass. For the price I like the sound that is put out.

    Since I don't do much FPS sound is not as important to me. Just a 2.1 Altec Lansing 121E system.

    Same as you mgpower, but over summer I changed the sub for a Pioneer 12" 2000W sub (designed for cars lol) but it gives it more power. Also running them through an external soundcard, then linked to an Alpine Power amp.

    A friend of mine has a sub-bass tube (one passive one active) that looks a lot like a jet engine - attached to his Xbox. Playing Halo 2 is pretty exciting I can tell you!

    Midiland set I got bak in '01. POwered sub and 2 sattellite speakers. Still works well enough to get the downstairs neighbor pounding on his ceiling if I loose track of time.

    Use to have it hooked through my pioneer receiver to my Klipsch 300w towers. Got the cops called on evening while playing SOF2, they thought there was a freaking shootout going on in htere :)

    Sigh . . . now I have speaker envy. I'm using stock speakers that came with a commercial computer I had several years ago. To complete my shame (dare I say it) I'm using onboard audio . . . not yet bought a seperate sound card . . . :rolleyes:

    When I built my current main system, I put all my cash into the processor, video card, and memory. It's on an ASUS board, which has pretty good sound built in. I didn't need anything better at that time

    However, sound is my new upgrade area. Christmas is around the corner, and I've been dropping hints . . . like:

    "Honey, buy me this sound card - here are the part and model numbers - and these speakers - the style and model numbers are at the bottom of the list I just handed you . . . Love ya, Babe!" :)

    Seriously, I've been scanning this thread and gleaning valuable info to help me choose a speaker system and a sound card. I appreciate the data, as this is an area I have neglected in my computer world.

    I am having these creative speakers for quite some time now:confused: . I think they are outdated. Need to get myself a new set with some decent subwoofers.

    Speaker envy?
    Embarrassed???

    Sample my setup.

    Let's see...
    My computer sound howls from an old POS Optimus stereo cranking out a butt kicking 50 watts per channel...
    Rated at that...
    Well... it tries.

    But..
    Added is a 24 band EQ to clean up the otherwise hollow, anemic sound.
    *like putting fuel injection and a turbo charger on a mini bike*

    But the speakers aren't bad.
    Two 3 way speaker cabs with 12 inch (35cm for the metric challenged) woofers that might handle 150 watts RMS.
    *Surround what?*

    So there ya go...
    Not bad huh?
    Read em' and laugh.
    I'll do the weeping.
