    If you want quality check these out.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-NX...106055?hash=item568e0873c7:g:I0kAAOSwLF1X7nx~

    Massive saving too, RRP

    Still looking for bigger etc..

    OK I give up. It seems that speaker manus have given up also, because all I can find are sets like you guys already have by companies like Trust etc.

    I would therefore strongly suggest buying a decent set of powered speakers, then add a real cinema sub. You can use a 3.5mm splitter cable out of the sound card, or, connect the sub to the rear if you have a surround sound sound card.

    Personally speaking I am using the B&O speakers in my monitor, split to a dual 6" Bose sub I modified myself. The pickings seem to be awfully slim on 2.1 these days.

    Then I would get something like this.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/a3o/Micr...=UTF8&qid=1501511784&sr=8-4&keywords=microlab

    And then invest into a proper cinema sub. Make sure it is active, then you can just split the signals into each one. That would be a big improvement. If you want much louder then these

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/JBL-Contro...id=1501511892&sr=8-1&keywords=jbl+control+one

    On an amp with a powered sub would give you more than enough volume. Those control 1s provide ear splitting levels of volume.

    Or in the middle

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Edifier-St...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=2NQC6WW8VZBBT70QRWYR

    And a powered sub.

    When I bought my sub I got a Scandyna Bass Station for £120 on Ebay. It was damaged, but it had only slipped its mount inside. Fixed it in ten minutes, £700 sub for £120.

    It's got a 12" long throw woofer in it, trust me this thing means business. When the cock upstairs decided to show me how loud his stereo was one day it stoked the fire in me and that was when I built that stereo to hook into my cinema system. Only needed one blast of The Prodigy and he soon got the message :D

    No worries man. Just remember, a decent set of real hifi speakers will last you years and years. I don't even think there is a set I could recommend over a proper set of speakers and sub. Good speakers will last you many years.
