Hey, I am looking for help in buying some speakers for my apartment (to be connected into my computer mainly). I am considering studio monitors but leaning more toward a 2.1 system. I am definitely more of an audiophile than any of my friends but most likely not more than anyone on here. I use the Shure 215s as my headphones and love them (846s would be nice but who has the money?).
I listen to everything from Hip Hop (mainly) to Jazz to Acoustic to Reggae and occasionally Pop/Rock. I also enjoy producing hip hop but it's just more of a hobby.
I'm looking for something that sounds pretty crisp and not muffled like many really low end speakers but from time to time I just want a stupid amount of bass to shake the room (hence the reason I'm leaning towards the 2.1 setup) Also I don't want to have to get an amp or anything additional
Here's the catch... I'm on a budget of about $100 (maybe a bit more). I have done a bunch of research and found the following options that seem to me to be my best options.
Logitech z623 2.1 7" Sub and 200 Watts RMS -- These seem to have the amount of bass that I am looking for and it's easily adjustable
M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Active Studio Monitor Speakers -- These may have better sound quality than the Logitechs though.
I want as good of sound quality as possible for my price range and I understand that turning up the bass to stupid "room shaking" levels will take away from the quality of the rest of the music which is why I am looking for something with good quality sound and just the option for that kind of bass haha.
Any additional suggestions would be great!
Thanks a lot!
