    Ok, just to get some ideas.. what are some good quality speaker sets for under $200.. here is what i need:
    - 4.1 or 5.1
    - Gets loud but still sounds good without distorning
    - Quality, won't break from loud listening constantly

    I was looking at the 4.1 .. 400watt Logitech speakers.. they have everything i want.. i have just heard allot of stories of the amps blowing if you listen to the speakers loud. Well hope i get some feedback.

    i had the 641's too. they are a nice set of speakers but the bass does sometimes seem a little washy. Take a look at some reviews though
  5. if you have a home stereo just hook your computer up to it thats what i did
    i have a 700watt+ computer speaker system:blink:

    I got Hercules XPS510 for $AU166 about 4 months ago, and they are quite good i think.

    By the way, my computer is in a rather small room, so if I put the volume much over say 75% for more than 10 seconds, I wont blow the amp, but I will blow my eardrum:D
