    No no nooooooooooooooo

    I know they say they are computer speakers... but they are just wasted on a PC.

    Like I said, I've got two other ppl around to my house to have a look at DVDs on this setup and they look terrified and excited at the same time when they leave.

    It was an instant sale.

        I don't sell the stuff... I'm just an advocate for them.

        I was just dumbfounded when I bought them that I had to spread the good word of Logitech (hail)

        500+ RMS from 'computer speakers' !! I just wet myself.

        The z-680s are definitely the go if you can still find em for tree fiddy.

        I'll make it easy for you... seriously

        $3000 or $350 ?

        They are that good

          Geez, that was a 'deep and meaningful' realtionship you had going with those speakers!

          BTW - it's a passive Sub
          I can't think what more you could possibly need to know... except maybe this:

                  How much money did you want to spend? Tho&#39; I guess you weren&#39;t planning on spending anything when you got the speakers...

                    Goddam mind reader

                    Yeah I was looking to get out of this cheap, ie $0.00, but I think the most that I would go for this thing is like $100.00, could have been a bit more but the cops took some of that this morning , if you have some magical plan lemme know!~

                      Not for $100 bucks seeing as how you would also need a powered sub. The other thing is if you haven&#39;t got any audio cables and speaker wire that is also going to add to the cost. But I wouldn&#39;t go out and buy a $100 all in one type system.

                      As I mentioned, you can get cheap 5.1 amps with very minimal features and Dick Smith every so often sells their DSE brand 10" active sub-woofers for around $170 (not listed on the site at the moment tho&#39 so with the 5 satelite speakers you have you would be a little under $300. Then for that price you would probably find a reasonable all in one type system...

                      You could just buy a 5.1 amp to start with, but those satelite speakers without a sub-woofer will sound shit

                      You could scout around Cash Converters and see if you can find a cheap powered sub - OR find a cheap amp to power the passive sub you have. But it would be a bit of a bitsa system and you could end up throwing money at it to get it sounding reasonable. Perhaps best to save up for a decent 5.1 system if you have your heart set on HT in your lounge.

                        ok

                        Plan a)
                        Purchase seperate AMP / RECEIVER units to make use of existing passive speakers / sub @

                        a.1 - Expensive (Decent components) to run shit speakers
                        a.2 - Cheap (Cheap components to run shit speakers but still costing ~$300 - ie more than I want to spend)

                        Plan

                        All in one system unit
                        ~$300.00

                        Plan c)

                        Sell speakers for $5 and profit

                        Plan d)

                        Watch cartoons and worry about it later

                              What you can do with the sub is drive two of the satelite speakers until you get more money together for the 5.1 amp

                                The logitech z-680&#39;s are fantastic if all you want is boomy explosions and lots of overblown rumble. Great for action movies, but shitty for music.

                                But horses for courses, they do what they&#39;re designed to do, and quite well too.
