Hey guys, over the past two days I have been doing a TON of research on what speakers to get for my laptop. These will mainly be used for playing music (trance, house, dubstep, rap, alternative). I would like to keep these for a while as I will not be living in the dorms next year. The level of volume is not an issue here. Everyone on my floor including my RA are really cool
I am not looking for a 2.1 PC speaker setup. I have been looking at getting some decent monitors or bookshelves that can later be turned into or upgraded into a REAL 2.1 system.
I have been looking around for about a day now after reading countless threads on PC speaker setups but I can't seem to make up my mind as to whether or not to go with the passive or active route.
If I were to go with the active route can I still run those through a receiver and hook up a sub later on? Or can you only do that with passive speakers?
My budget is around $130. I know this is tight but I am just getting into the speaker game and want something entry level to start out with. Eventually I plan to add a decent sub to this system but not right now. I am just looking for speakers at the moment.
If you guys could give me some suggestions as where to look or what speakers would be a good idea that would be very appreciated. Thanks guys!!
