    Hey guys, When I've built this rig, I bought a 2nd hand 5.1 speaker kit from my friend...

    And now, it's starting to fall apart... 1 of the speakers stops working randomly... The subwoofer seems to be cheap... It's got lots of power but as soon as you turn it up, u get more of a thunder sound than a crisp loud bass feeling...

    So I'd like some advise and links to 5.1 speaker kits that are really good. I've been looking @ different models and I'm really not an expert, so I'd appreciate your input.

    Here's what I do MAINLY with my speakers:

    - Play games on the computer
    - Watch movies on the computer.

    And for this, I want to be able to crank the volume up "Without having to be scared, I'm gonna break the speakers" (don't worry I don't mean Cranking it up all the way... just louder...)

    I've got a set of Logitech X-540's - And touch wood, never had a problem. Best pair of speakers I've had!

    Best speaker I have ever had, and still have is logitech Z-680. You cant get them anymore, but if you are looking for DD decoding and a good mid range home theatre setup go with Z-5500, or the newer Z906.
    A friend just bought the Z-906 and they are pretty special. $399 AUD though, but speakers are often over looked in the whole setup
