I use to own a klipsch 2.1 computer sound system, my cat destroyed the cable and now I'm planning on getting a new one. I have about 200 dollars to spend and they HAVE to be really LOUD and have really good bass to piss off my inconsiderate first floor neighbors. I want to make their last 2 months really miserable since that's what they've been doing me.

EDIT: any speakers would work as long as they have a 3.5mm jack

Quick question, are you in an apartment?

I'm guessing you want to be able to go to a store to pick them up? Or are Newegg and Tigerdirect links ok?

It doesn't matter where I buy it from. I'm also thinking of getting an annoy-atron.

Well considering most apartments you have to sign a lease saying you won't cause obnoxious noise, two things should happen

  • Tell your landlord about the people annoying you
  • Not going to help you break the rules of your apartment

According to them they're allowed to play loud music till 9pm. So I want to enjoy that privilege too. Posted Image

and like what I said earlier, they're not renewing their contract and they're leaving in 2 months

Well in that case, here's a 2.1 set with a 130W sub: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16836121048
Should be loud enough to piss some people off.

Do not get BOSE speakers. BOSE = Buy Other Sound Equipment. They are over priced, the Logitect are just as good.
Buy The Logitect z623 speakers. I own them, they are AWESOME. They have a THX cert, (the movie company that veers movie theaters for sound quality).

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

i love when they are yelling at you to turn it down and your like "what? sorry, i cant really hear you". my friend has a PA system for his band, about 400 watts of sound, we were listening to music on it (im his A/V guy) his parents came down and where like "TURN IT DOWN". they where yeling at us for like 5 mins, then we "finally" understood.

Get the Corsair ones because corsair is a good company and doesnt overprice their shit (im looking at you BOSE), or the logitech ones if you want toi save a few bucks

EDIT: and to make them even more mizerable...point the subwoofer in the direction that they live :D

Viagra, lubricant, and pornographic movies? If that package arrived at my house, I'd be calling a babysitter and making reservations at the Marriott

Oh, with the corsairs. You can change how loud in Sub is separately. So if you want you can really fuck up how the song sounds to make it more annoying... Not like I do that or anything Posted Image

any 2.1 system you can control the sub. either on the controller, or on the back of the sub.

Logitech speakers are definitely great! I bought the Z2300 when they just came out and they still work and sound pretty great. Only downside is I have to fiddle with the power button from time to time because the button is a little loose and won't play sound.

I can also play testimony that the Bose desktop 2.1 speakers aren't as great. My brother and I once compared the Z2300 (years ago) with the Bose companion speakers from that year and they sound just about the same with the Logitech one's having a slight edge. So yeah if you're comparing computer speakers then from experience Logitech beats Bose. No idea if Bose has improved their speakers though...
