Will i need a good speaker for a sound card? Tags: Sound Cards Speakers Signal-To-Noise Ratio Components Last response: December 23, 2012 3:38 AM in Components Share paul2955tw December 22, 2012 5:33:22 AM I am planning to add a sound card in to my pc and I was wondering if i'll need a decent speaker for the sound card to work to it's full potential. For example if the sound card's signal to noise ratio is 100db, will I need a speaker with with the same SNR ratio or does it not matter? What about the frequency response? If the sound card offers something like 10hz to 48 khz, will I need to have the same frequency response for the speaker?
