I have the Audioengine 2 speakers, and I think they sound better than the 5.
I use them at my computer, and use a 12" cheap Sony sub I got for around $100. It is good for the limited volume levels I use, but it is probably not adequate for your situation.
I suggest that you get the Audioengine 2 speakers and the Polk PSW505 subwoofer, which is much much better and only $189 now from Amazon.
The Audioengine 2 comes with a cord to connect them to the 3.5 mm audio output jack of any computer, and the sub just connects to the extra jack on the left speaker.
