Ok well i just spent the whole day looking for speakers on the internet. Not i can't decide which one to pick, so i need your suggestions and i'd like to hear if anyone had experience with those speakers.

The speakers will be hooked on a HDTV in my room. Will be used 75% to watch movies and 25% to listen music. No gaming at all.

I'm open to hear more suggestions, but my budget is around $150.... $180 is really the maximum i'm willing to spend

here's my choices :

Edifier S330D
- 125$
- 72W RMS (18w per speaker)
- Optical input
- 40W subwoofer ( 6.5” )
- 85 db
- Frequency Respense: 55Hz - 20KHz

Logitech Z623
- 135$
- THX
- 200 watts RMS
- 130 watts subwoofer
- 35 watts each speakers
- 95 db

Logitech Z2300
- 180$
- 200 watts RMS
- 120 watts subwoofer ( 8'' )
- 40 watts each speakers
- 117 db
- Frequency response: 35 Hz–20 kHz

Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021
- 160$
- Don't like design, so it wouldnt be my first choice
- 200 watts RMS
- 66 watts rms each speakers
- 106 db

- 230$
- 230 watts RMS

Edifier, Logitech, and Altec Lansing subs are all "junk". The Edifier employs a magnet for shielding, as for the Logitech, it does not employ any magnet. You may think that the heavier sub is better, in which case it is not. This is merely a ploy by the manufacturer to use weight as a means of quality, far from the truth. Cyber Acoustics CA3602 will outshine both with equalized controls. If you place them all on a spectrum analyzer, you will not see much of a difference in the flat range, where the quality of speakers are determined. The next best thing is to use a equalizer, to fine tune the quality. The heart of a speaker system are the mids, not the subs. I have been in the technical arena for over thirty five years.

Curious to know if you looked into the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 setup. It has been around for some time now but the numbers match up pretty well with your criteria. My friend has a set of these and we rarely would push it past 50% volume. Here are the specs from the Klipsch website. I would venture a guess that this setup's weight is not a ploy, these things are pretty sturdy. We accidentally put a good amount of wear on his speakers when moving and the like.

since when did frequency response ever ever ever reflected ont he speakers quality....

there are speakers that costs 10000pounds and u'd expect them to be nearer to the flar frequency response, then say a 1000 pounds speaker..... far from the truth...
