    [OT] Speakers

    Ive been looking at new speakers, but i would like something with ALOT of power, and can find any specificly computer speakers with over 500 watts. So i started looking at hometheater systems. I just wanted to know if it is easy to hook up a hometeater system to my computer, and get the full 5.1 experiance. If you can point out any speaker systems that i would have trouble blowing, i need some advice, i go through speakers like a hot knife through butter. Currently i have the Logitec Z5300e system, and i think i blew the RR speaker. I also thought about getting just replacment speakes for the satalite speakers cause there only RCA plugs that go into the subwoffer.
    If you can help or just want to give your opinion, go for it. :up:

    I'll sell you my Klipsch ProMedia 4.1 system...400 watts, THX certified. If you need more power than that, there's something seriously wrong with you.

      I don't think home theater systems and PC sound systems are very compatible. It would probably be doable, but not easily.

      (TBH, I'm satisfied with my 70W RMS...)

          500w RMS or PMPO?
          Most cheapo systems give you a PMPO value which basically.. tells you ****. RMS values are more interesting. 500w RMS is basically insane (500w per speaker I mean). I've got a 5x100w + 150w sub soundsystem at home for my DVD's. I can shake up the whole room with that even when it's not at full power. I haven't even dared to max it out because I don't want to upset the neighbors 3 doors down.

          If you got a digital out on your soundcard it should be no problem hooking it up to a HES.

                  had logitech Z-680's.........rocked

                  have logitech Z-5500's............rock even more.

                  I couldnt ask for more than that but if pure power that makes you deaf is your cup of tea then maybe go for the klipsh 700watt system mentioned earlier.

                    Yea you can hook up your machine to a home theatre. If you have a multi-channel sound card (but no digital), you can find the connections and use the "6 channel discrete" input on your amp. Else, use the optical.

                    Anyway, I have an inexpensive Altec Lansing speaker setup, and its great sound for a great price.

                            You'll need to spend 1000$ or euro's on a home cinema setup if you want to equal the sound quality and power of the logitech z5500, klipsch topmodel and gigaworks s770. I would just get one of those if i were you.

                            They all got over 500 watts of RMS.

                              Yep, if you connect using the SPDIF (or whatever it's called) out to your home system, you will get the full digital surround. That's what I'm doing. I use the single digital out going over to my Yamaha Digital Receiver. From there, I have a 5.1 speaker setup that blows away any computer speaker setup. I have my subwoofer on the lowest setting because I have had neighbors asking me to turn it down due to pictures falling of the walls and knick-knacks dancing around on their shelves. I'm thinking it does pretty good considering I only have a few grand invested.
