I want to upgrade my garbage Logitech computer speakers to something better.

I was considering the Lepai 2020a+ amp and Dayton Audio B652 bookshelf speakers with their Sub-1000 subwoofer, and although I think it would be great I don't really have the room on my desk as I run 2x 24" monitors.

So I'm searching for something which is at least as good but a bit smaller. I came across the Klipsch ProMedia 2.0 speakers but have no idea what their like: http://www.klipsch.com/promedia-2-1-computer-speakers

Does anyone have any suggestions on PC 2.0 speakers and sub for my PC? Something about half the size of the Daytons.

You can use different bookshelf speakers with the Lepia. It doesnt have to be the Dayton's. Find a pair that meets your size requirement and fits your budget and pair them with the Dayton sub. I see used satellite speakers posted on craigslist all the time for cheap. Look used :wink:. What are your current speakers and what is your budget?

Don't laugh but the current "garbages" are the Logitech LS21's:
http://www.logitech.com/en-au/product/LS21-speakers?crid=47
 
- budgets under $200 for amp, speakers and sub - but I could stretch,
- I have been looking at the Dayton Sub-1000 but I really don't have the space for it either
 
OR,  should I make room by mounting the Daytons on my study wall up behind my desk? They're just so big and detract from the look of my room. Can I get something which sounds as good but is smaller, and can just sit on my desk beside my monitors?
 
PS - I also just bought some AUdio Technica ATC-M50 headphones and C&C BH amp.

+1

Budget makes a big difference. For example, if you want tiny speakers, the Cambridge Minx are very good but need a very good sub to handle the midbass.

What i would do is get as much speaker as possible, then  with time get the sub...  
for small in form factor the:   
 
Cambridge Audio S20
Energy CB-5
Mordaunt Short Carnival 1    
 
i was thinking the Audio engine A2 since they are active speakers but then again... the sub... there is plenty of choices in the 150 range... a guy is selling his CA for 95
