    Im looking to buy some new speakers for my comp. I currently have the creative Itrigue 3300. The highs are nice a crisp but the sub bottems out very easily. I hear a buddies Boston 5.1 System which was amazing but you can only get it from gateway for somthing outragous like $300. I looked into it more and I heard great reviews about the Creative MegaWorks 550 THX. Just wondering what you guys are all running, or what sounds good? I like high, clear and crisp highs and low clean bass that can handle some volume. Any suggestions? Doesnt have to be 5.1 either. I used to use my home theater receiver, klipsch 10" sub, and 2 monitors which I loved but I want it for the livingroom. Anything comparable to that? Thanks

    I Was just looking around and found the Logitech Z-5500 which looks like a very nice setup which I have seen several OTer's using.

    Yeah, I just paired the Z-5500s with a Creative Labs X-Fi... it's awesome

    for computer speakers id just go 2.1 klipsch, anything better would be a home theater style arrangement

    Im thinking I might just get a 5.1 Klipsch setup. I have a 26" Sharp LCD for my monitor/TV so the 5.1 would be nice for watching movies and such as well. I got it narrowed down the the promedia ultra 5.1 and the Z5500s.

    If you're really concerned wit hthe sound quality I'd look into a pair of compact studio monitors. That's what I run with my comp set up and it blows the klipsch promedia's away no problem.

    What kind of monitors do you have? Any sub? When I do get into my gangster moods I like a bit of bass :noes:

    The biggest problem I have found with computer speakers is they sub cutoff is set wayyy too high for music listening. I hate that! I was hopeing maybe klipsch figured that out.
