G51 surround system = barf.

What you need is a properly designed set of speakers to match the other properly designed set of components in your theater.

Works fine for me. Gives me good enough true surround that I can hear stuff around me in game

Computer game does not equal home theater. Nothing "better" is needed, especially since anything audiophiles consider "better" is exponentially more expensive.

pffft. I have a 3 piece Wally special for sitting at the computer desk. If I really want to view and listen to something worthy, I'll take the time to use my 5 channel Kenwood in the living room. Can't believe the price some people shell for computer use. Whats next? 2.1 for cell phones with a plug in subwoofer? ;-p

I use a 2.1 system on my desktop. I use a 2.0 system on my HTPC though. M-Audio 3.5 inch studio monitors. Sound great!

You're talking to the guy who designs home theater speakers as a side job and hobby. You can always go better.

How'* this for $170 in parts? Gray line is 45 degrees off axis, which is damn good.Linear bass extension down to 56hz (which was modeled in another application).

If you can DIY a gaming computer, you can DIY a home theater speaker on a design someone else created, such as this one.

That $170 includes ports, terminals, drivers, tweeters, and crossover components, and that'* on the more expensive side of the many published designs. Then there are people like me who can build the cabinets if you need roundovers, flush mounts, and flush trims.

Exponentially more expensive? Not quite. Exponentially better sounding? Yeah. Takes some effort, but what good thing doesn't?

I then use something like this for surrounds in mini cubes with nothing more than a cheap capacitor :

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...ymphany%202%22

My gaming rig uses delicate paper cone 6&quot; drivers on neodymium motors and a Vifa waveguide tweeter (also on a heatsink and ferrofluid cooled neodymium motor), and I can actually feel the midbass impact of sniper rounds fired in the FPS games I play, as well as every last tingle of the shells dropping on the ground, with every last bit of detail and accuracy.

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...FTR=aura%20ns6

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...umber=264-1028

Total for that design is $126 for the pair.

In music, I can hear the singer side stepping next to the microphone. I can hear every whispering inhalation, I can hear the triangles tingle for longer, and I can hear things in music I've never heard before with any >$1000 commercial set of speakers. Best of all, I can do it for under $200.

I also have a design I made that requires $40 in parts per pair, digs down to 80hz linear with a 3.5&quot; driver, and is compact enough to be used as a surround satellite. I actually have 3 pairs on my work bench in progress.



We DIY cars, we DIY computers, and with a simple design like this, we can easily DIY home theater speakers.
