Hi, i am looking for a good set of computer speakers that need to be 2.1 and have a good subwoofer and great quality speakers the two that i have seen are the Bose companion 3's and the Logitech Z-2300's both 2.1 both roughly the same price range (z2300's are $100AUD cheaper) but i cant find many reviews on them, so i was hoping someone with any of these speakers could just tell me if they high quality and good bass.


The Logitech Z-2300's
Z-2300 2.1 Speaker System

The bose Companion 3's

If any of you know a great pair of 2.1 pc speakers that would be great if you could tell me them.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I've never heard a pair of Logitec's which made me say "wow, those are nice", and I've heard quite a lot of them. The first terms which come to mind are: lifeless, dull, rolled off upper mids, mushy bass, colored (in not such a nice way) and probably sterile.

I usually tend to think of Bose in the same way however, and would rather have a Logitech system than ANYTHING from that overpriced, status symbol only company, Bose. Their stuff is far past the point of overpriced junk. And their patents ? lol. laughable at best that they pay someone with a PhD to slap a certified stamp on their patented plastic junk...

And with that out of the way.. there are certainly a couple of better choices out there for $300. And don't fool yourself. They do NOT have to be a 2.1 system in order to get clean and powerful enough bass to fill a room. In fact, most subwoofers like the ones you'll see in Creative or Logitec systems only make things sound pretty bad IMO.

What would I recommend ?

Harman Kardon SoundSticks II - Apple Store (U.S.)

I got to audition these with some personal FLAC's of mine and they performed very admirably ! Especially considering that the pair I had tested prior to them were these:

Focal XS Satellite Speakers - Apple Store (U.S.)

And don't think that just because they're expensive, this is the only reason they sound ****ed good. They were pretty awesome and I suspect that their design and dock integration have something to do with the price.

If I had the money to spend though, I'd personally go with some studio monitors. Perhaps some Genelec's KRK's or ADAM's. But those are definitely $$$

But if all you're looking for is a standard 2.1. system, those Harman Kardon Soundstick II's are what I would recommend.
