Make the house shake this Christmas, with a few inexpensive speakers and sub woofers.
Yesterday I found myself searching for a new set for my PC. In what would seem like a trivial task eventually turned into a set of confusion, fueled by the sheer size of selection on offer at Amazon.
To make matters even more frustrating, most speakers on offer are similar in price… The good news is I’ve put together a small list of products, which I personally think are hectic.
Hectic Sound Systems – Feel The Bass
Now preferably if you are looking for a good set of speakers, you usually want something over $50 as a general rule. This is because lower quality speakers generally break easily or provide a cheap ‘sound’, with distortion being all over the place.
However, if you are on a bit of a tight budget, then opting for cheaper speakers can be just as good…
(please note: Depending on your preference the more Watts (power) a speaker is able to harness and generate = the more decibels (sound) which can be produced, before imploding your ear-drum. (The average amount of decimals is usually around 50-60 db)
1) GOgroove BassPULSE 2.1 Computer Speakers with LED Glow Lights and Powered Sub-woofer.
- Price – $49.99 (price may vary depending on location)
- Uses – For Music On Desktop, Laptop and PC.
- Rating – 4/5 Stars On Amazon
- Features – Fresh out the box and ready to go, the GOgroove sends a stylish bass pulsing vibe through the unfortunate souls that are ear-shot of its wraith. This budget beast provides an assortment of different colored glow lights, 2 satellite speakers (small) and 1 sub-woofer which can be connected for all devices, including mobile phones.
- Technical Doof Doof – The 2 smaller satellite speakers sport 5 watts each = 30 db (decibels. Whilst the sub woofer is god-like for its size at 40 watts of peak power = 90 db (decibels) (not-exact measurements)
Now these speakers won’t blow a hole in your room or make the ground shake (thank-god for your parents) but they do provide sufficient, if not good sound quality for a small-sized room or area which is compact.
The design is also quite swarve primarily at night, when you can switch on the colored LED lights. During the daytime however, the speakers look poor at times and underwhelming when in a lit room. (This is just from my observing perspective).
2) Creative Inspire T12 2.0 Multimedia Speaker System
- Price – $48.99 (price may vary depending on location)
- Uses – PC, MP3, Mobile Phone, Gaming.
- Rating – 4.3/5 Stars on Amazon.
- Features – The slim design of the Creative Inspire isn’t overly innovative but it does provide a lot of mobility, in terms of weight and size. The in-built high-performance drivers allow for ‘clarity‘ and a dynamic feel, to rid of static and distorting sounds whilst listening to music. An easy to identify auxiliary section + Bluetooth/wireless connectivity also allows for simplicity, for those of us who aren’t ‘tech-savvy’. The ‘Bass Flex’ technology used in these speakers cuts out the middle-man (no sub-woofer), providing a low-frequency bass which resonates when listening.

- Technical Doof Doof: Both Speakers combined produce 18 Watts = 75db
In all honesty, this would be best suited for those who want a more space oriented design. These speakers are slim and weigh less than 2 pounds (0.9kg). They provide some solid sound for their price margin, and are suitable for general purposes.
Above And Beyond – Over $50
1) AVerMedia Ballista Trinity Gaming PC Speakers
- Price – $116 + shipping (price may vary depending on location)
- Uses – PC, Xbox, PlayStation, WiiU, smartphones, tablets, TV, MP3 players, DVD / Blu-ray players & more
- Rating – 4/5 Stars On Amazon
- Features – These speakers look complicated… And I mean that in a good way. It offers 2 satellite speakers + 1 sub-woofer to plug in and play on any of your devices. It also has a special mode called ‘Assassin Mode’ which provides clear and warm dynamic sounds, particularly helpful when playing in quiet areas. There is also a separate panel box for adjusting volume, bass and treble. Allowing you to customize sound for your liking.
- Technical Wa Pow – 77 Watts Peak Power = greater than 70db
The coolest thing which stood out for me with these speakers, are there customizable sound potential. One minute you can have the bass roaring and the table shaking, in all its surround sound glory. Then the next you could switch on Assassins Mode, for a more focused and low-frequency experience; one of which is more clear and direct.
