Need some speakers with BASE!!!!!

Hey all,

 

I just got a nice BLD/NZXT PC with a Ryzen 2700X, 32 GB RAM, and a 2080. Now, I need a nice set of speakers and a subwoofer to go with it. I donated my old HP speakers and woofer awhile back; they were okay, but nothing to write home about. I love my games, but more importantly my music. My current belnd of HP Envy monitor speakers and Roar speakers are nice but I NEED BASE. Play James Horner's "The Launch" on Youtube and you'll understand. Anyway, what do you all recommend? BASE!!!! I don't want to spend more than $200; the PC was costly enough.

Yeah, bass. Sorry!

Having an EQ to mess with helps a lot! I have some old Creative GCS300 speakers which sound mediocre on most systems (are even rated at 120Hz+ freq response) and I got them to sound absolutely stunning with equalizer APO, wish I could pull a bit more out of em but I am happy with the results. I even got an old laptop of mine to sound nice (helped that it had a subwoofer to produce the lows I wanted). Try to look for something that has at least 2-3 inch drivers (or speaker cones, I could very well be mixing something up someone please correct me) to help be able to produce the lows, mine are 2 inch and they get the job done after tuning. Most speakers will do if you are willing to take the time to play with an EQ, just don't cheap out on any lol. Subwoofer in a desktop system I don't find necessary but if its what you like go on ahead, the Logitech Z623 I know are good since I have demoed them and an instructor of mine had those speakers and I thought they sounded wonderful. I hope this helps and that I don't sound insane XD

1st: Thanks for making my subwoofer's go nuts. 2nd: Have a look at logitech z623, or z2300 if you can find any. Decent enough quality for the price :)

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.
