Pic request, speaker setups with dual monitors

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm trying to plan my new desk/gaming space to coincide with my much bigger PC case and im looking for inspiration/help.

 

Desk: 2m x 80cm

Tower: TT View 71

Speakers: Kitsound Parallax 2.0

Monitor 1: 32" non ultrawide

Monitor 2: 25" non ultrawide

 

My issue is that I cant find any speaker stands which are tall enough and tilt down or they just look janky, so I was hoping to see how you guys have done it?

(I also rent so I can't wall mount unfortunately)


Monitor: Alienware AW2518HF CPU: 8700K Heatsink: Corsair H100i v2 GPU: Gigabyte 1080 Ti RAM: Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 2x8GB 4133Mhz Mobo: Gigabyte Z370P D3 Case: Corsair 570x PSU: Corsair RM1000x Storage: Samsung 860 Pro 1TB, 850 Evo 512GB, 850 Evo 250GB

I have a dual monitor setup and lots of speakers but my setup is totally different to yours, and check out these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gorilla-Stands-GSM-50-Lifetime-Warranty/dp/B01N574HYK/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=speaker+riser&qid=1556064864&s=gateway&sr=8-3


My power conditioner for my audio setup costs more than my pc..

Yeah I had seen those and the taller GSM-100 version but they don't tilt down, so if they clear the 32" monitor they're well above ear height :(

hm.. what speakers do you have and how high is your ear off the desk? also do they have to be above the monitor? i would put them either side of the two monitors, it will help with imaging and soundstage, and wont sound like overhead atmos channels xd

The problem with either size is that there isn't really enough room with my bigger case as you loose 130cm from the monitors and then another 30cm from the tower which leaves about 40cm of free space.... and the foam pads I use for speaker isolation are 20cm wide each  which means everything is pressed together if I arrange it horizontally Dx

 

If I had to guess, i'd say my ear is 60cm off the desk, speakers are mentioned in my OP

Does the pc have to be on the desk? why not get a sheet of MDF or chipwood and have the pc on the floor
