Logitech z-2300 + z-5500 -- how will it sound?

Hello,

Not quite sure which sub-category this belongs in...

I'm considering getting a logitech z-5500 speaker set. I currently have a z-2300 set.

My question is - can anyone tell me how the two sets sound together? For example, when playing music.

If it helps, I will be getting an Audigy SE card to go with the z-5500, and have the z-2300 hooked up to my onboard.

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, this probably should've been in the high-end audio forum instead, but I can't find a way to move it.

The Z-5500 has slightly larger satellites which should make them sound fuller. I have experience with both the Z-680s and the Z-560s which are predecessors to the 5500s (they use the same cone drivers).

Sound together? You mean playing the same thing?

I imagine it would sound like twins talking at the same time. Their voices are very similar but will interfere with each other in some way. Even if they are saying the same thing, it will sound less distinct than either of them talking individually.

im sure the z-680 use different driver with the z-5500, it may be the same size. but the z-5500 seems stiffer. whereas the z-680, seems slightly looser.

similar to the z-4 but just 3inches.

That makes sense. Thank you!

You have both models?

And there's no need to use different drivers, unless Logitech got a better deal on a different model.

im not sure, but they may also have used different materials.

All PC satellite speakers are made with treated paper cones, except Bose, which uses untreated paper.

u forget to mention jbl. creature uses the drivers, that the GLA 55 uses. made out of metal.

the sattellites on the jbl creature line, is made of aluminium.

acting smart??? i think everyone in this forums, know that there are made of aluminium....

'Technology that is out of this world.

creative gigaworks t -- series, use cloth dome tweeters + glass fibre woofers

need a link??? well you'd know where to look for...

Wow...aluminum in $100 speakers. That has to be the worst idea I have ever heard. Aluminum requires complex crossovers to tame its resonance peaks. Very few companies are willing to work with aluminum and use polypropylene instead due to the inherent costs in crossover design. I don't even need to hear those speakers to know that they ring like a bell.

And I said satellite speakers. The T-series are stand-alone powered monitors.

you only need ot control resonance peaks, if the enclosure is fully sealed. jsut like closed headphones.

enclosure aint fully sealed, in my opinion, since no one has really complained about peak frequency or wotnot.
