Some speakers are just like this, my friend had the same problem with his old cambridge sound works speakers.
Trouble is the speakers are designed to put out xxx Watts which is the selling point, but they neglect performance at lower volumes.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

i think the brand is boston... but its just 2 speakers and a base. not the best but they do sound good. yea i just turn it half way and use the sound control on the computer, but that gets annoying figiting with that just to turn it up.

thanks for the help though

Just gently set the speakers to a good volume, and leave it there. Let Windows Volume Control do the rest
