    Is it true that the wider the frequency response (lower LF and higher HF) and the higher the sensivity for a set of speaker system the better?

    What other critieria should I compare to choose a set of speaker system?

    Ryo, in short specs don't matter too much, different manufacturers have different methods of quoting frequency response and rarely do they all conform to the same standards.

    Generally driver size and speaker box volume dictate LF response. Higher sensitivity demands less powerful amplification to reach a given volume generally, however, speaker impedance will also dictate how good an amp you need (lower impedances need better amps generally).

    Simply enough the number one thing that matters about speakers should be how they sound to you, other's opinions can be used to make a shortlist but it is you who will be using them.

    Other factors include aesthetics (if you have a partner who won't appreciate having the room taken over with large boxes!) and obviously price.

    It is worth bearing in mind that satellite speakers are intended generally to be partnered with a sub. However, since you sound like you are considering buying a package then normally a sub is included.
