Hi, I currently use Logitech Z625 2.1 speaker setup and while it sounds nice, the sub seems to be lacking in power for what I am after.

Do they make a 2.1 setup with a bigger, more powerful sub woofer that is actually worth the money? (budget up to us750ish)

I use the Razer Nommo Pro and am very pleased with it. 2 desk units with mid/tweeters, and a large down firing subwoofer. All aluminium unibody and with some actually tasteful understand RGB. It syncs well with BT on both Apple and Android also, but has USB, 3.5, Optical inputs too.

Sadly there aren't a lot of good PC speakers around any more.
I've had quite a few over the years, but haven't had any with a sub for quite a some time.
One option might be to get some "bookshelf" speakers that has a sub out and get a separate sub, as then you can get as much bass as you want.

I just got an old Logitech z4 for £10, very nice it is too.
With that budget, you should be able to pick something up. Maybe a top notch 5.1 Logitech with just the fronts and sub connected.

What's the point of spending extra to get a high quality 5.1 system when you're only going to use the 2.1 parts of it? :banghead:

If you set your output to 2.1 what does it matter, you still have a high end 2.1, with a option for the extras later.

How ever with $750 might be able pick up a AV with HDMI, Sub a pair a fairly good speakers secondhand though. And most likely sound better than all the trash of today.

EDIT: Way better sound than that Logitech crap.

There are no good high-end PC speaker options really so there are two ways you can go about this, either small home audio bookshelf speakers with a small amp or pro active monitors. The home audio route will be cheaper and easier to setup for casual playback. Active (active = the amps are built in) monitors will be more accurate generally speaking so will be better if you are super serious about music (dosn't sound like you are) but will be more expensive. Either way you'll want something relatively small that will work nearfiled so 3" - 5" woofers, but if you are going to have a sub from the start it really dosn't matter what size the woofer in the mains are. I'd probably suggest the home audio route, there are more options and it will be easier and probably cheaper to setup.

Micca RB42 4" bookshelfs should fit on any desk, you'll probably want some stands or fashion something yourself to angle them properly and get the woofer a bit away from the desk surface to eliminate that reflection. For the sub this 8" Polk should do nicely, quality is more important than quantity when it comes to bass and you don't need anything huge nearfield. Pair with small class D amp like this S.M.S.L, it has plenty of power (from quality Infineon ICs too), sub line out so pretty much everything you need, only thing I don't see that you might want is a built in DAC or headphone out but there are other class D options from SMSL and Topping and other quality Chinese amp manufactures that have DACs and headphone amps.

Comes to $700 on Amazon which leaves a bit left over for cables. Should sound pretty sick, and its all upgradeable in the future though I doubt you'll need to.

As long as your GFX card can output sound though HDMI this should be good

Yamaha Rx-v475, second hand getting a little pricy right now but normally about $120, or some thing like it.
Boston PV700, https://www.ebay.com/itm/324716768051?hash=item4b9aa0ab33:g:kD8AAOSwcU9g8XwC
Paradigm Studio 20 v2 , around $200-300, or even vintage speakers would be good but you might need more space for those.

I have a pair of Paradigm speakers and they are so good I don't feel the need for a sub woofer. For my main PC, I use M-Audio BX8A's and they are also
good without a sub woofer, but you need to go at least 8" woofers to sound deep enough. (130 watts each monitor) They still sound great after 5 years.

With that kind of budget you can get decent speakers and sub, you can search for "powered bookshelf speakers". Powered speakers don't need an AV receiver so they are easier to use for Desktop use. I've heard about KEF, Kanto, Edifier, I think another brand was something like AudioEngine? Lots of hype for the KEF LSX, which I saw at $799 USD during the holiday specials in 2020

I'm using a simple creative 2.1, with a moderately large sub, I don't have my AV setup at the moment but the bass is ok for what it is, quite a lot of volume before it turns to muck too.

KEF LSX are gorgeous little speakers, not cheap though

You don't need to spend 750 to get a good sounding 2.1 with bass. Get the Klipsch Pro Media set, goes on sale often at costco/bestbuy/amazon for 70.

I've had this set since maybe 16-17 years? The bass has finally failed, but it was a great value. There is still a significant difference between that and the expensive stuff. I have an SVS SB-2000 subwoofer, it costs something like 500$, but it's just not comparable, much more powerful, but first time I heard it, I never knew bass could sound the way it does on my SVS sub.

No doubt there's a difference. Then again we're not sitting in front of our audiophile quality rigs. Though I bet there are some that do lol. Rubs my precious Dan Anagnos designed Sony SS-M7...

Those Klipsch get ya 90% of the way there for it's purpose imo.

There is a huge difference, for games the Klipsch 2.1 would get you 6/10 of the way there but for music more like 4/10. A lot of what we are recommending is probably overkill, but there isn't much in between cheap stuff like the Klispch and piecing something together with discrete components. The Razor Nommo is probably better than the Klispch but idk if its worth the retail price.

Find out what the 5.1 and 7.1 systems of that genrration had, does the sub hook up to speakers via RS232?

I'm only using a 2.1 Z4, and tbh it is very good, nice bass, and crisp mid/high has a nice desk volume/bass control with line in/headphone jack too, can be had pretty cheap now too. I have had 5.1 amps with speakers on stands in the past, but too much wiring, and not really no need for a PC. I have my HiFi, so don't need the same on my PC.

these are the same exact speakers I am using. the bass hits harder and deeper than anything I have ever heard in my life. I am running it through a Modi 3 DAC though.

What are you running it through? if its just mobo dac and only realtek drivers. thats your problem right there. get a proper DAC.

He asked about 2.1 not a $5000 system

klipsch promedia 2.1 and be done with it

the thing is, i have the same exact speakers as he does. he doesn't need the promedia 2.1 that would be a downgrade. he needs a proper DAC. these are great speakers. I am honestly wondering if he plugged them all in right or has some audio setting in software wrong or something. i have watched loads of movies and played loads of games on these speakers, they are next level 400 watt THX beasts.

these are the same exact speakers I am using. the bass hits harder and deeper than anything I have ever heard in my life. I am running it through a Modi 3 DAC though.

What are you running it through? if its just mobo dac and only realtek drivers. thats your problem right there. get a proper DAC.



the thing is, i have the same exact speakers as he does. he doesn't need the promedia 2.1 that would be a downgrade. he needs a proper DAC. these are great speakers. I am honestly wondering if he plugged them all in right or has some audio setting in software wrong or something. i have watched loads of movies and played loads of games on these speakers, they are next level 400 watt THX beasts.
Lol, they are not beasts they are toys. Nor are they 400 watts, if they had 400 watts behind them the drivers would go up in smoke in about 5 seconds. The Promedia are toys too but they are better than these. You don't need a DAC or soundcard upgrade with speakers like this, the quality just isn't there to justify it, and its defiantly not going to get you any more bass.

I think this thread is kinda dead though as the OP hasn't replied once.
