Basically I am looking for information regarding my options for setting up a decent speaker system for gaming through the 6 - channel input(from an audigy 2) . I purchased a Digitheatre LC(http://www.pure-digital.com/Products/Product.asp?Product=VL-60507&PageType=Specs) from Scan.co.uk a few days ago to replace an - ahem - Creative 2200 set-up . After setting it up I noticed a few problems with the system: 1. The volume of the centre channel is lower than the other channels and cannot be equalised using the calibration utility - already at max . 2. The overall bass of the system is - how shall I put it - sh**e . The bass lacks punch and the lower frequencies sound as though they have come from somewhere else - far away, which mucks up the overall sound . Then there is the fact that the subwoofer is effectively a large speaker(check the specs) and only rated to go as low as 50Hz . Before I start you should know that my listening environment/area is only about 2.2 - 2.5 metres squared . The walls are wallpapered, the floor is carpeted . I cannot change the listening environment, so I therefore can't shift kit to elsewhere . I am more than happy to mount speakers on the walls for the extra distance if required . The centre speaker location is currently on top of my monitor and is therefore fairly close - less than a half metre to the listening position, which can be shifted if you can figure out a way of doing so . Now to my request . I therefore have one of the following options: 1. Return the speakers to Scan.co.uk - Can anyone figure out a good excuse I can use to allow me to return a set of speakers than have already been taken out of the box and set-up? - contents undamaged and accounted for . 2. Replace the speakers for another computer oriented sound solution - more cubes anyone? Any recommendations? 3. Replace the current 'sub' and amp for an amplifier/receiver and subwoofer, but maintain the current 5.0 speakers from the LC . Pay particular attention to the ohm and wattage ratings of the 5.0 speakers if you intend to make a comment on this(check link above) . Obviously I would be looking for any recommendations for kit assuming an overall budget of £200-£250 for both sub and amp . 4. Much as above, but with an aim to replacing the 5.0 speakers with seperates . Take well into account listening distances, size of the speaker(s) and the definite requirement that all the 5.0 speakers must be magnetically shielded . Any recommendations - the cheaper the better as long as they are 'good enough' for this particular application .
