i know this has nothing to do with computers but i will use it WITH it

does any one know any places or brands where some one can buy REAL speakers IE: speakers that are 25 inch high 14 inches wide and 9 inches deep similar to a technics sb -st450 3 way speakers preferably above 140 whats, and not some thing that is 6 inchs high 4 inches wide and 6 inches deep - they look like kid toys and i want NO part of that. oh and im looking for something that doesnt cost THOUSANDS like the stuff @ audophile.com. i have asked every where with no avail and i figure i would ask here since my set up will have it on it hooked up via a amp

Emmet what are you using the speakers for?? If it is for a computer then I have the Logitec Z506 5:1 system (25 watts RMS) which vibrates the room

Unless you want to use a sound card or external DAC and a separate amp, you will not be able to drive speakers as large as you want from your computer.

I just bought a Corsair SP2500 2.1 computer speaker system. The satellites are only roughly 4"x6"x6" but give surprisingly good sound for their size. The midrange is 3" and the tweeter is 1" and are bi-amped (each driver has it's own amplifier). The sub is only 8" but it is in a monster enclosure (roughly 10"x11"x18") that mounts the driver in a sealed camber to the back of it and a ported duct in the front chamber. I can feel the air moving in the port when I crank up the sub volume a bit. Just running on onboard sound, the Corsair sounds much better than my old Logitech X-540 5.1 system, which sounded much better than anything Bose had for the same price. I recently picked up an Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card to see if it gives better even better sound than the onboard Realtek sound on my Asus P9X79 WS MOBO which the reviews claim it will. I'll be temporarily installing it in a day or two to evaluate it.

Hm well seems as if yo want something much larger than I thought my Z506 through a Xonar DG is far too loud at full volume in my room.

But you must do what you want to I suppose.
