I can't decide on what speakers to get for my new build, I plan on using these for gaming and to listen to music with lost of bass (edm). I'm wondering if the Corsair SP2500 is worth the money at $189.99 on newegg or if i should get the Logitech Z623 at $98.99 on Amazon.

I also read that you're better off just getting monitors for around the same price range to get better sound. I found the M-Audio AV 40's are only $140. What do you guys think i would be best off with? Or what you guys suggest I should get that I haven't listed here? Thanks!

I have the same question, and was wondering if anyone ever helped you decide or what you bought? I was also wondering where you saw the SP2500s at $189.99? They are $249.99 on Newegg now, did they go up $60 since November?

The SP2500s must have been on sale cause I saw them at that price on newegg.

And noone ever gave me advice, but I ended up going with the Logitech's and I'm extremely happy with my choice. They are well worth the $100, they sound awesome. The bass is very powerful and can actually distort the sound at some times, but they have a bass level knob so you can control it and level it out so it gets rid of the distortion. Also if you plan on using the headphones through these speakers I'd advise against it, just bypass right to your PC, cause they lower the volume to your headphones a significant amount. But other then that I love the speakers. Extremely loud and can easily fill a room, and has very nice high, mids and lows.

Hope that helps!

Thanks! I'm considering those and a sound card because of my budget ($250). But, I have a pretty nice, or so I've heard, on-board audio on my motherboard the ASUS Maximus VI Formula. Do you think I'll need a cound card? Do you have a sound card? Any reccomendations? I heard the Z623s are a little muddy in the mids, is this true and can it be fixed with a little EQing?

Also, any opinions on the Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II 2.0 speakers alone or with an accompanying afterparty sub? I've heard these praised for their mids and highs and am stumped for why they don't come with a sub for about $100 more.

Btw, I will be upgrading from a single Dell Soundbar and expect to be blown away be the audio system I choose! Lol.

I would not take that advice at face value. The SP2500s have way better mid drivers and dedicated tweeters powered by their own Class D amplifiers that make the highs astronomically better than anything that Logitech has to offer. The mid-range from the Logitechs are also considerably (if not horribly) washed out in comparison to the SP2500s. While not comparable to your bookshelf M-Audio speakers, the Logitech SP2500 is THE most high end PC-specific audio system on the market at the time of me posting this. Logitech's sound reproduction from their modern speakers is absolutely horrid compared to any decent PC speaker system available at the moment. Logitech specifically focuses on muddy bass that booms. Although the SP2500s also have booming bass, it's extremely clean. Another great feature is that the SP2500s do an EXTREMELY great job at replicating the movie theater experience with directional audio (and that doesn't even include their MOD-X theater digital sound processing feature among others). That isn't an opinion, that's a fact. Give them a try, you won't be let down. The other guy may enjoy the Z623s or whatever else Logitech offers, but he hasn't heard these before making the comparison.
