Default Speakers

So I have been wanting to get a good computer set up going for quite a while now as I spend a decent amount of time there and figure I will start working on sound. I am thinking a 2.1 system but I want a good amount of bass while still retaining good mids and highs for other types of music, these speakers need to be versatile LOL.

I really want a desktop and want to get rid of my laptop but atm that seems like to much trouble any suggestions for helping build up a good setup will be greatly appreciated, I am not very knowledgeable in this area haha!

Edit: So far I have looked into logitech z-2300, Logitech Z-4, some Altec, Creative, and Klipsch. Thoughts on these? Others to check out?

Thats one of the ones I have been looking at

How is the bass? And would you say it is more of a gaming/movie speakers or more of a music set of speakers?

The bass is great, I keep my bass knob at around 70% and it's plenty. At 100% it rocks my entire apartment haha, the walls shake and my desk rattles.

I use it for music/movies mostly, but for gaming it's just as good. The speakers come with a cord that can connect to your console cables.

I'm running Klipsch Promedia 2.1's and they are by far the best 2.1 computer setup I have used, waaaayyyy better than the creative and logitech systems that I had in the past. Although it's a decent setup if you really want the best get yourself a good pair of bookshelf speakers, powered sub, and receiver.

Last rave I went to was at this dance studio with a huge open room and was PACKED. On every side of me, with maybe 3 inches between everyone, sweaty e-tards dancing and waving their glowsticks in the air

Heli, how would you describe the quality of the klipsch? I was interested in these after hearing my uncles theater speakers! Idk if I have the budget to go down the shelved speaker route though unless I've seen the wrong stuff haha!

Yeah this "rave" was a something a college group sent out things for, I decided to check it out and it was pretty much just a semi big room with dim lighting and the dj just sitting there playing pop songs. Needless to say I didn't stay long lmao!

I use these:



Terratec - Home Arena

EPIC wooden sound, but I think they are no longer manufactured...


Also, my setup:


(you can see 1 speaker below the monitor, 2 are left and right (can't rly be seen) and 2 are behind the camera)

Klipsch is generally very high quality in my experience. I had some before my Logitech system. I bought the Z2300 because it was cheaper, and I'm not disappointed.


Edit: Is that Fruity Loops I see? ^^^^

I currently use Reason 4 but am considering Cubase.
