    The Bose will be better then the Logitech. Id stay away from Logitech if you want real sound. Logitech speakers are just loud, which is why some people think they are good. When really they have nothing against real speakers for the same price. What do you want a sub for?

    Sub woofer just adds to the bass, if the speakers you get can't respond to low frequencies. I would get a good 2.0 system, then add a stand alone good sub woofer later on if you want to do some bumpin :D

    Sorry to be annoying, and thanks for the recommendation. But could you please explain what is better about those?

    These Akai speakers are pretty good, they are actually re-branded Alesis M1 Active 320 USB (also supports RCA) and you can get them for a cheaper price here or here.
    BUCK NASTY and erocker say thanks.

    +1 = x4 on the Klipsch

    Bose are nice as far as movies and easy listening go. I guess it really depends what you are listening to.

    I had a $100 Logitech system that I blew out the sub in about 6 months.

    My Dad has a similar Klipsch system that has a nice all around sound

    x5 on the Klipsch Promedia 2.1's...

    Absolutely love them and have never used anything that is remotely even close in quality. The specific reason I like them is that they're very flexible whether gaming or Mozart...they sound great and have very nice high's and strong mid's. Almost feel like a set of Bose...for a small speaker system they fill the room with sound quite well.

    You can routinely find a good used set for a hundred or under on E-bay...that might be an option. I have an extra set of the original version I plan on putting up there soon.

    Best,

    Liquid Cool

    I built a sound system that cost about $500 and after listening to it and comparing it to the Klipsch Pro media 2.1 I took the Polk speakers back and bought klipsch synergy b-20 speakers. You might be able to fine some used

    I think they can only be bought directly from Klipsch. Call Best Buy and ask if they carry Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers before going. They most likely won't have it.
