After looking around I was deadset on buying a pair of RB42s because of their performance and the fact that I wouldn’t have to buy a sub. But looking around I kept hearing that I have to keep them pretty far from the wall to sound good because of the rear port affecting bass? I only have 2-3" of space to move the speakers from the wall before they’re right next to me. So I was wondering what setup I should go with for my desktop, I’ve singled out 3 options I think:
RB42s + SMSL AD18 = $294
MB42X + Lepy 2020A + Dayton 10" Powered Sub = 230
Fluance Ai41 = $250
Option 2 is the cheapest and I’ve also seen other people use it online but the problem with that is its more equipment to set up, it also has the rear port, and idk how much room I’ll have for my legs with the sub. Option 3 seems to be the easiest to set up since it’s powered but idk about its performance. I heard (mostly zeos) talking about it lacking bass (Ai40s, hoping this has more bass?). I hope someone can help me with what would work for me since I have no idea what I’m doing. Mostly going to use for gaming and music.
P.S: Imgur: The magic of the Internet This is a picture of my setup atm. I’m gonna be moving the desktop into my closet and shifting everything to the middle when I buy the speakers.
