Did you read what I said?


The problem with the 5.1 Klipsch, thats right, ONLY the 5.1 Klipsch is the sub

Go the Klipcsch forums and take a look. Go newegg and look at all the reviews on them.


Klipsch is a excellent audio manufacture.


And I said breaking them in correctly will help prevent overheating the sub so quickly and blowing it.

Be sure to tell us how the z-5500s sound. Those are the speakers I'm getting too probably around the holidays or just after. Klipsch speakers rock. I have the Reference Series upstairs with 1000W sub hooked up to a Marantz reciever. King Kong is crazy jumping around up there!

great choice for the speakers, i have them in my basement hooked up to my tv, ps2 and dvd player, and they are amazing. Pretty good price too for the quality you get.

I own them

They sound great. IMO. Im sure to an advanced audiophile they sound mediocre at best. My only complaint is that the base is *sloppy* (lol whoops)but everything else IMO is very nice.


Very loud when paired with a nice sound card!

Just a quick note RalliArt...

In your sig you need to put IMG tags around your URL's.


Ex: [img]www.your_user_bar_here.com[/img]


Back on topic.


Yes there is better. But of course it is very expensive, and probably not for you.


Z-5500 + Xtrememusic is a excellent combo. You will be happy with it.

Does a sound card really enhance the sound or is it kinda a waste of money?

Yeah I keep noticing my sig. I'm going to delete it. I really want something that will really pump out bass, and so far I hear that those will get the job done. I was thinking about Klipsch Promedia 5.1, but the rms on the Logitech is higher, so I'll go with Logitech.

But what do you mean by "sloppy bass"? Does it get distorted when you turn it up, or is it just inconsistent?
