    Yea the bass guitar amp I used wasn't GREAT sound for a PC, but it sure packed a punch and sounded really nice. Those Peavey Basic 12 bass guitar amps are VERY nice if you play bass guitar though. I've seen bands use that amp in bars with nothing but that one 12" amp. They really pack a punch.

    It was a fun little experiment. And it was only one 12" speaker so it wasnt even stereo sound. Now if you had 4 of those sucker's rigged up to be 4.1 sound, you might be in business. Just wouldnt suggest living within 2 miles of neighbors.. lol.

    I would still stick with speakers that are meant to be used for sarround sound though :p.

    XtR-X of course I knew what an amp was im big into my music BUT I did not know what an amp was in the conntext of home enterainment systems beacuse I have NEVER had experiance in that area before. I mean when i got my first pc 6 or 7 years ago I knew nothing about pcs(nor did my freinds) but now im stripping them down and such. Im also big into my millitary life and im sure that if i asked some pepole what certain very basic parts of wepons were they would look at me blankly, but I wouldnt have expected them to know the awnswer because they wouldnt have any experiance in THAT field. Just show at little more respect next time somone asks a basic question please.

    Oh and Phantasm do you know any good hi-fi sites?

    To be honest, the best thing to do is find a good hi-fi store in your local city main street. Unless you live somewhere really rural, there should be a specialised store. I got mine in a place called where they had some really good bargains and some excellent service.

    If you do not live in the UK and can't go to a then try to find something similar. Some store where they've plenty of stock from lots of different brands, lots of different types of cables. Go in and tell them how much money you have. I would expect to spend about £300 or so, maybe £250. £250 would do. £300 would be nice. I can't be bothered checking what that is in $$$ or how much comparable to in purchasing power, but I am sure that you get my drift.

    Dude, I can gurantee you that Inspire subs gets muddy and distorted easily. The bass aint that tight or clear at all at certain times. Go out and listen to a wide range of speaker systems and you be suprised how puny the bass is.

    You can find nice systems at places like Best Buy. Just look around your area, your sure to find a retailer somewhere with surround sound systems.

    Circuit city is a good one. They have great prices on audio. I bought a couple woofers from them 1 week ago, installed one in my car and sold the other one.
