The cones on my 15" woofers beginning to go soggy

So at long last I have to think of new speakers and I shall not be able to afford the £1200, or so, that such JBL monitors will cost.

What I have heard of the usual speakers that come with PC's has not been good, not particularly in terms of volume but the quality of reproduction has been pathetic. I have thought of a 5.1 or 7.1 system but am not particularly keen on the siting of all those cables but might be persuaded.

Before I approach the local audio specialist, does anyone have any idea as to where my research might lead me.

p.s I am not a Gamer or particularly into films, although I watch a few.

When I read 15" woofers, I assumed hi-fi use, but if it's actually PC use, then the Aego 2 set is the best of its kind that you will ever hear. click here I would not want to be without them, as they are not a million miles away from decent hi-fi speakers, in their reproduction at least. Obviously, the soundstage is not quite going to match a good pair of floorstanders!

(On the link that I provided, there is only one stockist, but I know that there are others listed in Google)

I hope to feed the PC in through the PreAmp when using it as a sound source.

Someone direct mailed me about a Yamaha single speaker system. Anyone got any relevant experience?

I think I saw that on The Gadget Show a few weeks ago; it's a single box isn't it? Jason Bradbury liked it a lot and reckoned that it produced a convincing surround sound effect with good quality. I can't remember the price though.

I heard these a few months ago and they really impressed me click here


BTW I would say this post is in the correct forum.
