I Have Had Creative Twice. My First ones were good just for music but i wanted more so i got the Inspire T5400 5.1 Surround Sound. They r awsome...wish i had more bass tho. The subwoofer is only like 22 Watts RMS. I saw these one speakers at Best Buy that cost $400. The Subwoofer alone was like the size of a my 17in computer screen.
I have the logitech z5300 speakers i like them. they put out good sound can get my house shaking at about half way up...small house though. anyway i got mine for only $150 from amazon.com which looks to be $100 less than the creative ones. Also logitech rates there speaker wattage diffrent than creative unless creative changed there rating system so you should read some reviews on the 2 of them.
the megaworks or gigaworks sets are lovely... either would do the jobbie...
logitech also makes excellent speakers but if you want truly high end with wde spectrum of sound get either creative or klipsch... logitech has good bass but with treble the other two spank it silly...
craziest speakers i've heard
got a 2.1 set
but in school i made speakers
