Hello I am looking to buy a sound system for my computer (2.1). I want a really good sub woofer witch produces good DEEP bass so you can feel it I really want it powerful I want one that comes with a sound card because I head it sounds better with a sound card supplied with the computer

Hi Qas

Speaker systems don't come with sound cards. :thumbsup:
Post your system make and model. You'll get much more reliable suggestions.

It is true that separate sound cards produce better sound the onto the motherboard integrated solutions, but as HitSquad said you won't get one with the speakers but have to buy one separately. As for great speakers look to www.klipsch.com

Mr. Alpha has suggested Klipsh, while they are nice they will also quickly empty your wallet, and to be honest I believe that they are living largely on their reputation here, they do make a good sub woofer...but there are comparable speakers out there that are a lot less expensive

If you don't want to spend a small fortune you might try Creative, they make the Inspire T2900 2.1 system which for the price blew me away.

I have a preference for headphones on a 2.1 system - I have a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS (which didn't cost too much) and I bought a decent set of headphones. These days head phones have positional speakers, and depending how much you want to spend, some have multiple speakers inside. I got a set of Altec Lansing headphones with headset, and until I get a 7.1 system, I will NEVER go back to 2.1. You would be surprised how bassy headphones can get - borrow someones and have a go, you willnot go back.

Logitech build good electronics, but I don't know anything about their speaker systems, one thing that bothers me looking at the add is that there is no mention of the subwoofer being "powered", meaning that it has its own amplification. If it is powered, a eight inch supwoofer should be enough to give you a bloody nose.

If you are going to invest that much in a sound system you should listen to it before you make your purchase, take along one of your favorite CDs.

I just did a quick google and found the following, appearantly you can get them there. Check here

Logitech has another 2.1 set. I don't know if Newegg ships to the UK, but you might find a more local outlet.

Check out the user eviews in any case.

Another alternative, depending on how close they are, is to run a stereo cable from the 'Line Out' on a decent,cheap sound card like the Soundblaster Audigy to the 'Line In/Aux In' of your Stereo System! My PC is approx 20' away from my Stereo and there's no noise or signal loss over that distance.

Believe me, if you have a decent sound system and speakers, the PC sound quality is bl&@dy excellent!!! Posted Image...
