Hehe, I got 3 of em now

1 Pyle woofer
2 mtx thunder 6000s

amazingly im not getting the compression and loudness that most get... nothing compared to a good 12" sub in a car.. my compression isnt there... basically saying, my bass isnt loud and obnoxious, its deep, sounds good, and most importantly doesnt take up space, im using unused spaces :D

but I think my problem is that my room is not empty, it is filled with stuff x.x

I'll figure out something with my subwoofers after I get a place in a couple years, prehaps with another abdl that likes music with the quality :D

compression is what I call getting pressure from low bass, a good sub can produce powerful compression at 15hz.
the reason my room is the problem is because the bass is dampened by my walls since they have shelves and other junk on them.... in other words, I get no bass
and at the top, that would be my models...

and in other news, today is the day TBE gets blown away :D

I'm not exactly sure what your talking about but I think I know, and nice.

On my computer, my audio system may not look good, but it sounds amazing. I've freaked out my friends with the bass before =D it was fun.

I consider anything over 500 watts in bass to be overkill. And I'm talking about huge 1500-2000 watt systems.

Bass wattage is just not that necessary. Once you start to get the power over about 30%, the sound quality really starts to deteriorate. But don't get me wrong, I love my bass, I just can't have nothing but bass.

It amuses me how people can think "Wow.. 3000 watt sub for $30! Not PMPO either! It's gotta be too good to be true". It is. I'm not sure what method is used to screw with RMS power ratings, but it's used by a lot of companies. I -think- it has to do with extrapolation. Some fan manufacturers use this method to boast "quieter" fans, when they're actually measured at quite a distance and with a sensitive microphone.

Basically, you get what you pay for. And 3000 watt subs are something you would use at a Metallica concert - not in the boot of your car!

By the way Jake, I hardly think that junk on the shelves is going to reduce bass. If -anything-, it may amplify it slightly. Other than that, I'm sure that china rattling on the shelves when you're trying to watch a movie would drive you somewhat nuts (and give you a fright when it falls!).

it doesnt rattle shelves and im not running 500w+, im pushing 75w rms, and the reason im using 3 is because my room dampens too much, the only thing that rattled was my keyboard which was taken care of with 1 layer of foam... simple and easy, high output and very clean, my bass is good bass, not shitty bass, not ridiculously loud bass, balanced out perfectly with the right crossover, my system is on upward of the 800$ stereo system range...

Lets face it, my stuff is considered audiophile quality and you cant say it isn't unless you have heard my system, im getting tired of people claiming to high hells that they're Monitor Audio tower speakers are better than my slab, I have good beat, very good sound quality, and the best part low cost...

The people that constantly nag about it are either Jealous or just buttholes...

--------
current system specs
--------

high amp - 50w rms x 4 (each speaker)
low amp - 75w rms x 2 (3rd wired in as second left)

You have to be there to really experience this system...insanity for $150+. The bass might as well shake the house apart and the quality of the mids and uppers are great. One of these days ill steal those MTXs and stick them in my car!

I reckon some of the Logitech options are pretty good.

Don't for one minute think that they're crap - we use an X-540 system (I think) that produces a total power of 70 watts with a 35 watt sub as our home theater system, and it is more than adequate.

In my opinion, it's not -really- all the speakers. You can have top shelf and they could still sound like shit. Why? It's all down to the quality of audio you're playing.

When I start playing the raw stuff on some of the higher end Logitech speakers, they're just amazing.

I would recommend the Z-5500 but ONLY if your room can accommodate 5.1. What I mean by this is, where you can sit at the computer or the TV, and the layout would be exactly the same as if it was a movie theater. Don't buy a 5.1 system if you're going to have the rear satellites above the main ones, or if they're going to be facing the same direction. This defeats the purpose of surround sound.

Unless you have a good tele hooked up to your computer, I don't recommend a 5.1 system at all.

If this is your case, these should be adequate.

On a side note, I don't recommend shit. I have heard the Z5500's, they sound absolutely brilliant. And while I haven't heard the Z2300's, they are Logitech's top dog for 2.1 systems. I have these on my wish list.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: I should mention that for a computer, unless you are a really hardcore audio nut, don't go crazy picking all these different speakers and amps. Leave that for when you have $2000-3000 at hand. Trust me, for a computer system that isn't a home theater box or a machine used almost exclusively for producing studio music, these setups are NOT good value for money and are almost always overkill.

I had a X-530 but the bass wasnt good, its not like the sub driver isnt good at all, its just that my room IS a bass killer, I mean, I have 3 10s in my room and it sounds a little louder than my living room sub, and I like pressure when I want music, and using car amps and some subs I got from a friend and car speakers I've inherited from my totalled cars really just means, its a 40$ system..

but it all comes down to how it sounds

and the reason I like it this big, two modes, a regular mode for room listening, and a loud mode for when I want to listen to music while im outside working on my hardware ^^

Jake, depending on the sound source and quality, the bass is somewhat adequate. However, once you turn it up, the bass port starts to howl quite a lot. I don't think it's quite big enough, considering that the port on the sub in my room is larger despite the fact that the driver is three times less powerful.

Two tricks I know of to squeeze a bit more bass out of your computer speakers (and possibly throw the other satellites off balance in terms of sound quality).

1. If you are using a 5.1 system or amp with only 2 satellites connected, run two Line Output signals. One to the main port, the other to the sub/center port. Make sure the signal is exactly the same or else it won't work. This appears to reduce overloading to an extent.

2. If you're using Winamp and you get overloading problems, drop the preamp in the equalizer all the way down for most songs. For others that need the volume turned up really high, turn the preamp up to suit. I usually keep it all the way down unless something quieter is playing.

hehe, that reminds me, I still need to buy a parametric preamp for this system :3
