so as I am thinking about upgrading whats at / in front of my desk I am wondering if one looking at a system up to 500$ is better of with bigger speakers including a 7 or 8 inch sub like the Adam T7v / T8v or a 2.1 System in the style of Swan M50w / Edifier S350DB.
I just can’t figure out pros and cons of either system.
What I am looking for in my speakers is probably a solid bass performance and a nice “big and impressive” presentation when thinking about movies/games/electronic music.
For intimicy and accuracy I am quite satisfied with my headphones atm.
I’d love to hear your experiences and setup ideas!
jbl 305p’s and a dayton audio sub-1200 may be in your future in terms of a 2.1, wide accurate soundstage and <30hz accurate bass for a good price. (my experience is based off of reviews and forum threads, although I plan on getting a sub-1200 for myself soon). it’s very important to consider your space and the limitations of it though, where you plan on placing things, distance from walls, etc. I can also help with wiring and crossovers. consider the replies of others of course lol.
Gotcha. Although I don’t know much about speakers I did already notice with the old pair I got around that I could get them sound twice as good just with some stands and better placement.
The “Zeos-Hype” just got me wondering about those Systems using smaller (satellite?)speakers and a sub to begin with, because he was all over the M50w and SB350DB.
I was in the same boat and was trying to go 2.0 with bigger 6.5" speakers, but ultimately did not have enough room on my desk so I ended up going with 4" PSB Alpha P3’s and an SB1000 sub. I would say it all depends on your desk space, listening distance, and size of your room.
