Talking what are your computer speakers?

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%:

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.

I've got a nice little Denon 250SE driving a couple of lovely English built KEF Cresta's.

Bootiful.

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
