Pulling the trigger! What final pieces might I need?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I decided to upgrade from the Logitech Z2300's to some bookshelf speakers based on some help I received on these forums and others and just wanted to know what else I might need to finish this up if anything.

 

Speakers - Infinity P163BK x2

http://www.amazon.com/Infinity-Primus-Two-way-Bookshelf-Satellite/dp/B0045NCB32/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_z/182-2856360-0978411 

 

Subwoofer - JBL Studio 1 Series Sub150P

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882665157 

 

Amp - Lepai TA2020

http://www.amazon.com/Lepai-TRIPATH-TA2020-Stereo-Amplifier/dp/B003P534SW 

 

 

I've already purchased the speakers and plan on getting the sub and amp shortly.  

 

My questions are:

 

1) Would I be better off with a different sub for the price?

2) Would I be better off getting a better amp, if so what should I go with?  

3) Should I be purchasing a soundcard to go along with all of this, or is the onboard from the motherboard fine?  Or does the amp power all of this? (Im pretty noob to all of this still so help is appreciated).

 

Price wise, I dont want to spend much more than the pieces that are listed as ive already spent a good amount. 

 

Thanks for the help!

1) Subs in this price range are only going to be but so good... that one is ok, check out this one as well:

2) That amp is also just ok, you will get average sound out of it and it isn't very powerful, at 90db the speakers are fairly efficient, but you would probably be better off with something more powerful.  Check this out

3) check what sound your mobo provides.  generally a soundcard will give you significantly better audio... but it depends on the card, and your mobo provides
